Patrick Chabal Amilcar Cabral: Revolutionary Leadership and Pe... £ 39.99
This book, first published in 1983 by Cambridge University Press and now issued for the first time in paperback with a new preface, tells the story of Amilcar Cabral who, as head of PAIGC, Guinea-Bissaus nationalist movement, became one of Africas foremost revolutionary leaders. In less than twenty years of active political life, Cabral led Guinea-Bissaus nationalists to the most complete political and military success ever achieved by an African political movement against a colonial power. At the time of his death in 1973, months before Guinea-Bissau became independent, his influence extended well beyond the Lusophone world and Africa. Friends and foes alike admired his political acumen and skills and saw in him a potential leader of a non-aligned movement. His writings have shown him to be a sophisticated analyst of the social, economic, and political factors which have affected and continue to affect the developing world. At a time when there is a general sense of despondency about the future of Africa, as well as cynicism about its political elites, it is instructive to be reminded that the continent has produced a political leader of Cabrals caliber. ABOUT THE AUTHOR PATRICK CHABAL is professor of lusophone African studies at King’s College, London. Among his books are "The Postcolonial Literature of Lusophone Africa" (1996) and "The History of Postcolonial Lusophone Africa" (2002), both of which he was the editor.
YUSALIFE The YUSA Guide To Balance: Mind Body Spirit £ 19.99
YUSA promote the highest form of abundance with our primary role on the planet being to provide the keys in order for one to unlock the shackles of self-limitation. We over-stand that it is every human beings sole birth right on the planet to be granted access to the highest truth and upmost understanding of self to enable personal growth beyond the limitations and expectations of modern society. Many are at a crossroads in life and realise that the truth lies beyond what is portrayed in society today. In an age where information is so readily communicated, it's becoming increasingly difficult to decipher truth from disinformation with the external distractions that tend to steer the mind and awareness further from the true self. Investing time into self-improvement is essential for the achievement of peace, happiness, universal awareness, success and the opening of the doors to a balanced reality. All iconic Gurus, Shaman, Buddhists or anybody with a connection to their true state would agree spiritual knowledge (knowledge of self) is again absolutely vital in order for you to achieve your dreams and desires. The primary aim of YUSA is to assist one with the life tools and guidance necessary for accelerated self-betterment which we have utilised on a personal level in order to realise internal fulfilment, self-betterment, expansion of consciousness for the highest good and achieve personal desires. Our role in providing guidance for those becoming aware of the need for change and the healing of one's self to benefit all aspects of their lives will be an active role, we are in the midst of creating a self sustaining conscious community, connecting people from all walks of life in order to share experiences, techniques and stories that can help awaken and liberate the collective consciousness.

Cheikh Anta Diop The African Origin of Civilization: Myth or Rea... £ 11.99
This classic presents historical, archaeological, and anthropological evidence to support the theory that ancient Egypt was a black civilization. Cheikh Anta Diop, who was born in Dakar on the 29th of December 1923 and died on the 7th of February 1986. Diop was a historian, anthropologist, physicist, and politician who studied the human race’s origins and pre-colonial African culture. Though Diop is sometimes referred to as an Afrocentrist, he predates the concept and thus was not himself an Afrocentric scholar. However, “Diopian thought”, as it is called, is paradigmatic to Afrocentricity. His work was greatly controversial and throughout his career, Diop argued that there was a shared cultural continuity across African peoples that was more important than the varied development of different ethnic groups shown by differences among languages and cultures over time.Diop did his most significant work under the tutelege of Professor Frédéric Joliot in Paris. This culminated in (Diop’s) seminal work “The African Origin of Civilization: Myth or Reality” (1974) is one of the seminal works on African proto history and history. It makes the case that both mankind and civilization started with black people. It argues that Ancient Egypt was largely Black African in race and culture during the first 2,000 years of its civilization. When Diop first put forward his thesis his work was resoundingly debunked by white Egyptologists and anthropologists, notably Bruce Trigger and other Europeans. But Diop was persistent and his theories were brilliantly defended by him. Now in its 30th printing, this classic presents historical, archaeological, and anthropological evidence to support the theory that ancient Egypt was a black civilization.
Indus Khamit Kush The Lost Prophet Of The Bible Enoch The Ethiopian £ 17.99
Enoch the Ethiopian, Patriarch and Prophet. Greater than Abraham, Holier than Moses the lawgiver. The big question is why was he kept a secret until the printing of this revealing book. The Bible states that only 3 men ascended body, mind and soul into heaven. Enoch was the first, Elijah was the second and Jesus Christ was the third. The Book of Enoch is an ancient Hebrew religious text, ascribed by tradition to Enoch, the great-grandfather of Noah. Enoch however is unique. He was the first to have both walked with God and to have ascended into heaven without experiencing death. Enoch lived such a rightous life that he did not die. Enoch, the son of Jarod, the seventh seed of Adam, the great grandfather of Noah, father of Methuselah. This prophetic man, an outstanding spiritual leader before the biblical flood, is the most towering biblical character in history whose flawless credentials and heavenly achievements are recounted by Moses. Published January 1st 2000. 302 pages.
Nur Ankh Amen The Ankh £ 13.99
African Origin Of Electromagnetism The Ankh: African Origin of Electromagnetism explores the ancient Egyptian Ankh, a cross that symbolised both the physical and eternal life, and its relationship to the origin of electromagnetism. Nur Ankh Amen, African anthropologist. Uses every scientific discipline that modern technology has to offer, in the tradition of Chiekh Anta Diop, to acquire the correct perspective on African high culture and civilisation. Its is now the time for Africans to battle Egyptology from the hands of westerners who have distorted our perception of civilisation, by a more forceful and public attack on their lies. We must expose to the light of truth, every lie and every claim of a European or Asian origin of Kemit and re-establish the link with our ancestors for the sake of our children. Review - "Wow what can I say?! I've always been fascinated with the Ankh along with its meaning and purpose, as well as the Pyramids of Egypt and whilst I'm not an expert on Electricity, I was able to understand this book and the factual and evidence based origins of Electromagnetism. It's certainly answered a lot of questions for me and put another piece in the puzzle for me and furthered my desire to undertake more research Because of this book I would like to further my understanding of modern electricity and how it differs from ancient electricity, as well as African and Egyptian History, DNA and Melanin, as well as Benjamin Franklin, Nikola Telsa and others. The author has made a few references to the Bible and Quran, as well as interpret many of the Egyptian Hieroglyphics and Spirituality. Do I recommend this book? Most definitely! It explains a lot and more! It's a book I certainly want to refer to and worth a place on my book shelf". Published May 1st 2001. 143 pages.

Toyin Falola Yoruba Gurus £ 19.99
Indigenous Production of Knowledge in Africa Toyin Falola, one of the most prominent interpreters of Yoruba History, has written an outstanding and brilliant pioneer book that reveals valuable knowledge on African local historians. This is one of the most impressive books on the Yoruba in recent years and the best so far on Yoruba intellectual history. The range of coverage is extensive, the reading is stimulating, and the ideas are innovative. This is indeed a major contribution to historical knowledge that all students of African history will find especially useful. This original study will find itself in the list of the most important studies of the 20th century." -- Julius O. Adekunle, Monmouth University In the quest to promote "universal knowledge" and create Western institutions in Africa, the intellectual contributions of Africans without university certificates or connections to the academy have been maligned, ignored or slighted. Yet, as Toyin Falola's book points out, there are African scholars and thinkers without academic credentials doing important works. Here is a book that shows that intellectual contributions need not be divorced from the concerns of local communities or deliberately promote narrative inequality and distance. The primary focus of the book is about the intellectual production of the prominent Yoruba intelligentsia outside of the academy. The academic mode has often privileged itself at the expense of other sites of production and voices. In this book, Toyin Falola analyzes the broad themes of the chroniclers who wrote in Yoruba and English and the contribution of the gurus among them. In addition, he presents a few selected texts to elaborate general and specific points. ABOUT THE AUTHOR Toyin Falola is a professor of history at the University of Texas at Austin. He is the former editor of the influential journal, ODU: A Journal of West African Studies, and was among the founding fathers of the Ife Humanities Society. He is the current co-editor of the Journal of African Economic History and the Series Editor of Rochester Studies in African History and the Diaspora. Among his recent publication are Development Planning and Decolonization in Nigeria and Violence in Nigeria.

Lushena Books Willie Lynch Letter and the Making Of A Slave £ 5.99
The Willie Lynch Letter and the Making of a Slave is a study of slave-making. It describes the rationale and the results of Anglo Saxons' ideas and methods of insuring the master-slave relationship. The infamous Willie Lynch letter gives both African and Caucasian students and teachers some insight, concerning the brutal and inhumane psychology behind the African slave trade. The materialistic viewpoint of Southern plantation owners was that slavery was a business and the victims of chattel slavery were merely pawns in an economic game of debauchery, crossbreeding, interracial rape, and mental conditioning of a negroid race, they considered subhuman. Equally important is the international nature of the European economic, political, and cultural climate that influenced the slave trade. Within the time scale of African History, it was a relatively short period, a mere one and a half centuries from the most intensive phase of the Atlantic slave trade to the advent of European administration and dominance. Long before that, the Slave Coast had been chartered by the Portuguese and the people off the area west of Benin, between the Volta River and Lagos, European traders traced a cultural history which linked them with the earliest Yoruba settlements to the north and eastern borders of Africa.
John Henrik Clarke Who Betrayed The African World Revolution? from £ 19.99
Excellent collection of speeches! John Henrik Clarke covers an array of topics through this selection of speeches, from the contributions of Nile Vally civilizations to the future of Pan-Africanism in the 21st century. Review - "Dr. Clarke does an incredible job of stringing together the common historical threads that constitute a cultural imperative among africans in america towards the eventualization of our spiritual, physical, and psyco-socioeconomic freedom. The level of analysis that he provides is almost comforting in the face of a broader society that would regard this field as a psuedo-science". Published August 1st 1993. 223 pages.

Hubert Henry Harrison When Africa Awakes £ 10.99
In this collection of articles, Harrison advocates an independent Black political thrust and a kind of education that prepares African people for nationhood. Introduction by John Henrik Clarke Hubert Henry Harrison's When Africa Awakes is an important collection of essays and articles written by one of America's great, but seldom notes, intellectuals. The collection, originally published in 1920, provides valuable insight on the PanAfrican world of Harrison's time and sheds considerable light on the state of the contemporary African world. Harrison used the term Africa to signify the unity of Black people throughout the world.In his lifetime, Hubert Henry Harrison (1883-1927) worked diligently toward the unity and enlightenment of his community. A labor leader, editor, teacher, and author, Harrison is at once the contemporary social critic and the wise prophet speaking to us across generations. In the article "The New Politics," Harrison. who was an advocate for revolutionary change, calls for a political agenda with an independent Black political thrust. He provides a clear and early call for blacks to work in their own political interest.With the republication of When Africa Awakes, the strong, clear voice of Hubert Henry Harrison calls to us again, raising important issues that continue to be pertinent today.

Learn about the real first black president (nope not Obama), and what some of our storied political leaders have said about the black race legacy and future etc. It is a very good resource of information for mankind, particularly those of African heritage".
