Harnessing Paulo Freire’s critical analysis of education and society, In Search of a Canon explores Africa and Asia, and their relationship to Europe, and Europe’s connection to the rest of the western world. As such, this book is situated in the tradition of critical scholars as it explores the relationship between historical processes and the development of a canon, or literature that is considered as sacred or accepted. In doing so, it intricately explores the intersection of history, religion (sacred text), race relations and education. The book uncovers the origins of the human family tree and the historical context related to the emergence of sacred literature and institutionalized systems of thought and educational processes. It presents critical dates, timelines and perspectives that are aimed at raising awareness in order to make schools and society more humane and democratic. Greg Wiggan is Associate Professor of Urban Education, Adjunct Associate Professor of Sociology, and Affiliate Faculty Member of Africana Studies at the University of North Carolina at Charlotte. His research addresses urban education and urban sociology in the context of school processes that promote high achievement among African American students and other underserved minority student populations. In doing so, his research also examines the broader connections between the history of urbanization, globalization processes and the internationalization of education in urban schools. His books include: Global Issues in Education: Pedagogy, Policy, Practice, and the Minority Experience; Education in a Strange Land: Globalization, Urbanization, and Urban Schools – The Social and Educational Implications of the Geopolitical Economy; Curriculum Violence: America’s New Civil Rights Issue; Education for the New Frontier: Race, Education and Triumph in Jim Crow America 1867–1945; Following the Northern Star: Caribbean Identities and Education in North American Schools; and Unshackled: Education for Freedom, Student Achievement and Personal Emancipation.

The Meaning of Hotep

Hotep is a word associated with recognizing that there is a Creative Force eminent in all things. Hotep deals with the commemoration of the ancestors, some of whom are great figures that stand out in history, such as Imhotep, the worlds first known multigenius and true father of medicine; Ptahhotep, the author or the worlds oldest book of instruction; Neithhotep, the First Dynasty queen and wife of Pharoah Mena; and Amenhotep, who designed the Ipet-Isut Temple in the west. All the major Western religions teach that man wound up being cast out of his heavenly abode due to womans ungodly act of enticing him to eat of the fruit of the forbidden tree of the knowledge of good and evil, thereby incurring the wrath of God. The Meaning of Hotep traces the historical records that have left an indelible proof that before God was conceived of in his masculine forms that are known of in the worlds today, God was, primarily, a woman. The Meaning of Hotep presents evidence that the Ten Commandments existed long before Moses and the Psalms before David. This book is for anyone interested in learning about spirituality in general.
