Overview

Giddings (Africana studies, Antioch College) discusses how the three intellectual systems of Kawaida, Black psychology, and Afrocentricity combat Western hegemony and facilitate African American cultural liberation through culture corrective theory and praxis. He describes culture corrective systems, their legacies, and their manifestation in the three intellectual systems. Then he integrates the material into a functional cultural philosophy, which he says offers social critiques, and advances a distinct set of assumptions about the nature of African American culture.
