Re: Is there any book on African wisdom?
If you simply GOOGLE "African Wisdom" you will get numerous titles on the subject. On the other hand, if you want to dig deeper into African culture, philosophy, behavior and ideas a good place to start might be, "African Culture: The Rhythms of Unity" by Molefi Kete Asante. This book is a collection of essays by some of the most influential scholars in African studies.
You could also go to the historian most responsible for providing the basis for the Afrocentric transformation. Cheikh Anta Diop. Some of his books: 'The African Origin of Civilization" and "Cultural Unity of Black Africa".
