Oyotunji Village: The Making of Africans in America

Òyötùnjí: The Making of Africans in America examines the impact of self-identification with African culture and the impact it has on African identity within social and Black Nationalist movements. More so than the Civil Rights movement, the Black Nationalist movement has influenced the ways in which African Americans self identified as a group and as individuals. Comprised primarily of African nationalists,Òyötùnjí Village was considered the vanguard in reintroducing the African ideology.
