CYNTHIA'S FIRST BOOK!
This engaging book offers a personal look at how centering spirituality in an academic life transforms its very foundations --- its epistemology, paradigm, and methods --- and becomes the site for spiritual healing and service to the world. Focusing primarily on her work in Ghana, West Africa, Cynthia B. Dillard presents a unique perspective on Africa as a site for transformative possibilities for African American academics/scholars and explores the deeper spiritual meanings of being "African." Through poetry, personal narrative, meditations, and journal entries, Dillard shares her experiences as an African American scholar and, in the process, provides a concrete example of what W.E.B. Du Bois called "spiritual strivings."
