To be Afrocentric one has to have a self-conscious awarenes , I think they go hand and hand or
moreso related .
cultural configuration, the Afrocentric idea is distinguished by five characteristics:
(1) an intense interest in psychological location as determined by symbols, motifs, rituals, and signs
(2) a commitment to finding the subject-place of Africans in any social, political, economic, architectural, literary, or religious phenomenon with implications for questions of sex, gender, and class
(3) a defense of African cultural elements as historically valid in the context of art, music, education, science and literature
(4) a celebration of centeredness and agency and a commitment to lexical refinement that eliminates pejoratives about Africans or other people
(5) a powerful imperative from historical sources to revise the collective text of African people.
conscious is to be aware of one's own existence, sensations, thoughts, surroundings that relates to the minds
of africans which i think is both common to one another i think they in the same family but yet not the same but serve as the mission of our beings ....I could be wrong but this what i think and found to be of the two...

GOOD QUESTION sistah !!!

Is there a difference between the two? Or are they one in the same?

One can be conscious without being 'Afrocentric'.

In fact, some of the most confused people I know who claim to be conscious to the point that everyone else who does not agree with THEM and THEIR way of seeing things is considered 'reactionary', are also essentially 'Afrocentric.

The same who started their brand of Egyptology in Black face, with baseless claims such as 'Cleopatra was a Black woman' and now God is a Black woman or that the original Black Goddess are the Sybils.

Please!

So called Afrocentric but focused on some near and far eastern hybrid ish mixed with Babylonian and a Canaanite and Asiatic twist!

Black and Latino custodial workers @ the Capitol Bldg said it was degrading to clean up the debris left by white supremacist who violently stormed the Capitol Bldg. They even had to clean up smeared feces. One staffer said they were used to cleaning up after white supremacist (referring to racist Congressional members). Those who were there that day feared for their life b/c they weren't given any protection.
Mother Jones posted a list of "law makers" nationwide who promoted/assisted in the insurrection on our government. ALL should be ousted, stripped of pensions, charged with sedition and felony murder.
If black folks are present at a crime, whether they participated or not, they're charged with as many violations as white folks can conjure up. Felony murder is top of their list. Why not for white domestic terrorist?
25,000 National Guardsmen are set up to protect for Biden/Harris inauguration! Authorities are AGAIN saying that white domestic terrorist are the largest threat in American and to the democratic process.
NOT Black Lives Matter protestors, NOT even foreign terrorist, but American grown white men who are angry about all the white privilege they have.
Twitter is now locking accounts for unusual activity when there is no unusual activity. Apparently if you post to much to soon, it triggers their spider hairs. Never mind that it's (or was) a platform to post information and opinions, now it's just a flat bed from the ghost-of-trump-past. Jack Dorsey/Twitter should be charged with giving trump the media to incite a resurrection against the United States government.
