    "YURUGU An African-Centered Critique of Caucasian Cultural Thought and Behavior"

    by Sister Doctor Marimba Ani

    "There is a "stultifying" intellectual mystification that prevents, the victims, of Caucasian colonization, from THINKING in a manner that leads to authentic self-determination. Intellectual "de-colonization" is a prerequisite for the creation of successful, political decolonization and cultural reconstruction strategies."

    "This study of Europe is an intentionally aggressive polemic. It is an assault upon the European paradigm; a repudiation of its essence. It is initiated with the intention of contributing to the process of demystification necessary for those of us who would liberate ourselves from European intellectual imperialism."
