Skh From Black Psychology to The Science of Being

Skh From Black Psychology to The Science of Being

In his new book, Skh From Black Psychology to The Science of Being, Dr. Nobles will revolutionize how we internalize and operationalize psychological processes and reframe how we think of psychology. Through his intellectual journey, Nobles discusses the advent of the discipline of Black Psychology and detail its evolution to the Science of Being. With a brief critique of the inadequacy of the Western Grand narrative, the “big ideas” essential to exploring the fundamental and necessary epistemic correction will include an explication of African (BaNtu) thought and worldview. Nobles will detail the need to “return to the source” and explore BaNtu episteme as grounding.

Being Human Being

During a time of high racial tension, Being Human Being seeks to dispel divisiveness, and instead presents a vision of a united humanity. With scientific basis established from The Human Genome Project, the authors explore what it means to be human, the myth of race, and the importance of common identity. The conclusions of the Human Genome Project discredit those who deny humanity’s genesis on the African continent; and, they allow for new examination of the fictitious basis upon which modern society justifies its divisions, privileges, and punishments. In this book, the discourse navigates the complex illusion of race by tracing its cultural and religious origins.

Revolutionary Pedagogy

Revolutionary Pedagogy

Revolutionary Pedagogy: Primer for Teachers of Black Children is a passionate appeal to teachers to take what George Dei calls a “transgressive” position toward education’s status quo, a status quo often expressed as a commitment to excellence of all students. This book offers tools for those who want to reverse the brain freeze that often accompanies this seemingly innocuous goal, assisting both the students and the teachers laboring in urban situations.

We Will Tell Our Own Story

We Will Tell Our Own Story

These authors, all deeply dedicated to the telling of an African story, are committed to righting the wrongs of intellectual inquiry by setting upright the standards, criteria, and assumptions often avoided by Eurocentrists—of any complexion. Without the ‘lions of Africa’ speaking and writing about their narratives, the fields of literature, philosophy, social science, history, and psychology, evidence would cede to those without the slightest idea about the African knowledge base or how to add to it. Thus, the authors in this volume speak loudly, and write deftly and definitively to erect a new phalanx of liberated minds.
