Reviews

"A philosophical and pedagogical tour de force, Dr. Dove brilliantly re-writes knowledge and curriculum across the disciplines to enable educators to conduct our children's "journey" toward self-knowledge, spiritual, and educational awareness. I am deeply grateful for scholarship and love for our children, and I can't wait to engage my students with this wonderful, truly liberating work!" Joyce E. King, PhD., Benjamin E. Mays Endowed Chair for Urban Teaching, Learning & Leadership, Georgia State University and Past President, The American Educational Research Association"


Drawing on a lifetime of unique personal experience and scholarly research, Dr. Nah Dove has delivered a remarkable pedagogical blueprint that rightfully centers Africa and offers a timely, visionary, and transformational approach to education." Margaret Busby, Publisher, Writer, Broadcaster. Editor, New Daughters of Africa: An International Anthology by Women of African Descent.


"The Afrocentric School skillfully guides the Afrocentric educator, providing a framework of over 5000 years and an understanding of how and why Eurocentrism has attempted to erode African Knowledge and truth. I highly recommend this text to those who wish to teach from an African centered perspective, and equally for those responsible for educating children and young people of African ancestry and heritage."

Dr. Sally-Ann Ashton, Dr. of Egyptology and Dr. of Psychology, Edge Hill University, UK
