In Afrocentricity, the opening consciousness is assumed to be an awareness of the off-centeredness of Africans as a result of Arab and European and military, cultural, and social intrusions that have dislocated African people.
Some Afrocentrists have regarded Western philosophies as contrary and often antagonistic to the proper understanding of African narratives; they are mainly distant and simply concerned with non-African realities.

The Philosophy of Afrocentricity
African Pyramids of Knowledge Kemet, Afrocentricity and Africology This is an Asante classic meant to underscore the epistemological basis for African knowledge. The author argues that Imhotep, the first pyramid builder, and not Homer, should be seen as the first human in antiquity to provide the foundations for subsequent science, art, and mathematics. The most monumental creation in antiquity is the pyramid. Using this argument as a starting place Asante shows how Black Studies, Africology, as he calls the discipline, leads to new insights into human knowledge. The Dramatic Genius of Charles Fuller is an accessible and appropriate introduction to the mind of Fuller for those who know his work and those who do not.
