Who is this book aimed at? What do you do with this book? This book aims at you and conveys the experience and behaviors of African people in the Yepete (dispersion). The nature of reality refers to the longstanding terms Africentricity, Afrocentricity, African centered, Afrocentric, Africentric, and Africentric Pan Africanism. The descriptions of the words reflect our wisdom in Africa to achieve a goal or set of goals for our personal and group benefits. Rightfully, the words involving the construct and contents of "Africa" and "center" envisions our reality and behavior. However, it must be said that the past has not taught us as history continues to repeat itself. Concerning this, it appears the terms that convey the African experience and behaviors remain synonymous with confusion, such as spelling Africa with the letter "k," the voicing of the words is only about teaching African history, improving one's self-esteem, or concerned with who is the first to apply the African perspectives. Subsequently, we no longer let the past be in the past and bring clarity and ease to the mentioned terms. Hence, this book surfaces as a resource clearing up the vagueness and ambiguity in human thought rooted in the interpretation of scholarly works.
