Being Afrikan is a title that will change your view of what it is going to take for us to co-create the Afrika we want. It will take a higher level of consciousness in individual human beings to achieve transformation at family, community and national levels. This higher level of consciousness will take us beyond independence to the celebration of our interdependence as human beings: I am, because we are! In Being Afrikan Mandivamba Rukuni shares with readers the inspirational spiritual journey he took in order to rediscover an ancient wisdom. By revisiting the age-old richness and values of traditional African culture, Rukuni offers a fresh way of looking at the issues facing the African continent today and shines a new light on the importance of embracing the principles of Ubuntu, Unhu, Botho.
While written for Africans in Africa, this title is an invaluable tool for anyone who wishes to learn what it means to be in the fullest sense of the word - and the underlying message holds true for all: if you and I are going to be agents of change in the world today, the greatest investment we can make is in knowledge - including understanding how to create more local, indigenous African knowledge for a modern, globalising world.
