Cheikh Anta Diop: An Intellectual Portrait by Molefi Kete Asante. A biographical portrait of Cheikh Anta Diop (1923-1986), a Senegalese historian, anthropologist, physicist, sociologist and linguist who via a interdisciplinary construct placed the origins of humankind in Africa, and people of African heritage in ancient Egypt. Hence, Asante demonstrates the intellectual depth of Diop as he explores intellectual authenticity, archaeology, language and culture, and how Diop was one of the first historians to articulate a decidedly Afrocentric paradigm.
