[editors ilissAfrica]"Africa Knowledge Project, known as AKP, is an initiative by AfricaResource Center, Inc., dedicated to academic research onAfrica and its Diaspora. AKP focuses on Africa-centered knowledge and research from a diverse range of disciplines. While it values the contribution of Western scholarship, AKP moves away from epistemic schemes of interpretation that represent Western world-views and research interpretations as central and global, and all others as indigenous or vernacular."
