The Awokening: Clarity, Culture and Identity in the Web of Chaos (Hardback)Ayishat Akanbi (author)
Thoughtful and balanced, Akanbi's analysis of the arena of 'woke' birthed by the digital age is a clarion call for understanding, measured argument and self-awareness.
The digital age has birthed The Great Awokening. Grievances previously overlooked - mental illness, racism, gender identity, homophobia, the need for safe spaces - now occupy centre stage. The current cultural climate demands us to declare our standing quickly and emphatically - often without pause for understanding.
Looking at how the concept of a spiritual awakening has evolved into present day 'wokeness' - and how it has in turn lead to further polarisation rather than unification - in The Awokening, Ayishat Akanbi encourages an appeal to humanism. It is a timely and inspiring reminder of the power of curiosity and the benefits of intellectual humility, and an urge to partake in the gruelling task of developing self-awareness, such that we can become more socially aware - and aware of each other.
