Identity is a sociological examination of who we are, and who we should be, in this world, through an Afrikan centered lens.  In order to correctly progress, it is critically important to be familiar with the concepts identifying vital social phenomena as they directly relate to us as individuals and groups.  Definitions are central to any intelligent, worthwhile explanation of society and how it works, especially as they relate to those who live in it without a clear, self-given, collective identity, but who still recognize the need to empower themselves.  And conceptual insights which clarify aspects of our social existence like spirit, nation, culture, worldview, civilization, socialization, community, family and ethics provide exceptional foundations for thinkers working to build such power.  Forming these definitions for this purpose is the intent of Identity.
