In his book entitled, African Pyramids of Knowledge: Kemet Afrocentricity and Africology, Dr. Molefi Kete Asante (2015, pp. iv - v) informs the reader that his primary goal in this monograph is to tackle head-on oppressive kinds of discourses. He plans to achieve this objective by providing readers with what he refers to as a radical testament of African knowledge. He offers to shed more light and clarity regarding the field certain scholars have fondly referred to as Africology. To Dr. Asante, methods of Afrocentricity are aimed at the transformation of the diverse realities of all humanity through openness to the various cultural practices. According to Dr. Molefi Kete Asante, his primary objective is to dethrone parochialism, provincialism, and narrow Wotanic visions of the world.
