The Education of Black People by W.E.B DuBois: #2. Galileo Galilei/1908

Abstract: Focus of Lecture #2, Omuluabi: Self Actualization and Communal Responsibility.

Success in acquiring true learning requires a certain kind of personality. From an African cultural perspective, Omoluabi is the essence of the human person, a wellspring of good character, exemplified by an understanding of the self and its responsibilities to the community. This lecture analyzes the concept of Omoluabi and its relevance in the project of useful learning.
