Being Afrikan is a book that will change your view of what it is going to take for us to co-create the Afrika we want. It will take a higher level of consciousness in individual human beings to achieve transformation at family, community and national levels. This higher level of consciousness will take us beyond independence to the celebration of our interdependence as human beings: I am, because we are!


This is the most inspiring, enlightening, educating piece of literature I have read in a long time. Rukuni tells you what he has seen and heard all over the world. - Refilwe Thobega, The Citizen
