About this title


This Book presents a holistic understanding and explanation of how African cultural knowledge promotes behavior and interprets the experiences of the ordinary African person from birth to death and beyond. It also demonstrates that this shared cultural knowledge is the fundamental source of the cosmic and spiritual unity of more than half a billion African people.
