Lushena Books Book UK Willie Lynch Letter and the Making Of A Slave 9781930097223
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.

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.

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.

African American Women Who Practice Polygyny by Consent Polygyny -- the practice of having multiple wives -- has existed since ancient times and is still practiced in many countries throughout the world. In this book, Dr. Patricia Dixon argues that the practice is one the African American community should adopt as well. According to Dixon, the concept of monogamy was spread by Christianity and created an unrealistic and romanticized notion of marriage that leaves many women, especially African American women, unfulfilled and unsupported. She offers many reasons to support polygyny, most importantly, the shortage of available African American men. Through extensive interviews, she offers an insider's look at polygynous marriages, showing readers its benefits and disadvantages, interpersonal dynamics, how financial, sexual, and parental responsibilities are determined, and the legal, moral, and cultural challenges that must be overcome in order to make polygynous marriage possible within American society.

This book was very informative and gives insight to those whom have questions about the first peoples before Adam and Eve. How they behaved, what their beliefs are and how they have influenced us today and what we know as the Holy Bible.  The book describes in detail how the Hebrew Israelites specifically the Falashas jews interact with one another, there strict customs from marriage, dietary, the un clean, education, and work environment. Let me concluded it has become an instant favourite amongst my books". Published 1983, 1993. 408 pages.

Colin Chasi Book Ubuntu For Warriors
Colin Chasi Ubuntu For Warriors £ 23.99
Colin Chasi‚Äôs riveting book overturns commonly held epistemological premises of the philosophy of ubuntu. Chasi goes further to uncover and position ubuntu as a resource for counter hegemonic struggles. It is a must read not only for all those interested in taking African philosophy but also and especially for all those warriors involved in moving African epistemologies to the centre. ‚ÄĒWinston Mano, Reader/Director, Africa Media Centre, University of Westminster Since the birth of democracy in South Africa, the concept of Ubuntu has helped cohere a new sense of citizenship and social responsibility. Chasi brings his unique perspective to this forensic analysis of the moral philosophy of Ubuntu and redefines what it means to be a warrior for social justice and change. ‚ÄĒSimon Adams, Executive Director, Global Centre for the Responsibility to Protect. Colin Chasi‚Äôs Ubuntu for Warriors is a bold and innovative contribution to our theoretical imagination of humanism in the discourse of ubuntu. It convincingly argues that the virtue of courage necessary in contexts of war and political struggle is an essential aspect of what it means to be human, which aspect the literature on ubuntu has largely overlooked. ‚ÄĒMotsamai Molefe, Senior Researcher, Centre for Leadership Ethics in Africa, University of Fort Hare. Chasi‚Äôs theoretical re-working of ubuntu is tested against the complex and varied profiles of five African historical figures who are all seen as warriors: Shaka, Nelson Mandela, Winnie Madikizela Mandela, Desmond Tutu, and Kenneth Kaunda. The main contribution of the book, thus, is to rescue ubuntu from the one-dimensional philosophical strait-jacket long imposed on it in normative readings. ‚ÄĒNyasha Mboti, Associate Professor, Department of Communication Science, University of the Free State. ABOUT THE AUTHOR Colin Chasi is a philosopher of communication, which he regards to be a mode of being. His critical and appreciative work is from the vantage of what he terms Participation Studies‚ÄĒa perspective that derives from the moral philosophy of ubuntu. He is Director, Unit for Institutional Change and Social Justice, University of the Free State.

Mahmud Kati ibn al hajj al-Mutawakkil Kati Book Timbuktu Chronicles 1493-1599
Mahmud Kati ibn al hajj al-Mutawakkil Kati Timbuktu Chronicles 1493-1599 £ 27.99
The Al Hajj Mahmud Kati's Tarikh at Fattash Some five hundred years ago, the Askiya Muhammad founded the Songhay Dynasty of the Askiyas, which flourished for more than a century in Sahelian West Africa.¬† The Askiya Muhammad administered his kingdom from Gao, Mali, although many of his most loyal followers were located in Timbuktu, Mali. The Timbuktu based scribe al hajj Mahmud Kati was a close friend of the Askiya Muhammad, who accompanied the famous Songhay leader during his pilgrimage to Mecca. The¬†Tarikh al fattash¬†is an eyewitness account of the rise and fall of the Songhay Empire, told from Kati‚Äôs perspective as a key participant in many of the most important events in the era of the Askiyas. Wise‚Äôs¬†The Timbuktu Chronicles, 1493-1599¬†is a translation of the Octave Houdas and Maurice Delafosse‚Äôs rendition of the¬†Tarikh al fattash, which was compiled from three versions of the text that surfaced in the early twentieth century, and that were edited by Houdas and Delafosse in 1913. It includes a new introduction by Wise, as well as the original introduction and scholarly notes of Houdas and Delafosse.¬†¬†Although long valued as the most important historical document of the medieval period, Kati‚Äôs chronicle is also a literary achievement that is comparable to the writings of figures like Chaucer, Rabelais, and Montaigne. Wise‚Äôs introduction and study questions accompanying this translation provide contextualizing information for the non-specialist.¬†¬†The¬†Tarikh al fattash¬†is essential reading for all students of African literature and history. Christopher Wise deserves both our admiration and gratitude for making available to the wider world this five hundred year old chronicle‚ÄĒthe best, the most significant and the most useful on the Songhai empire. The premodern is connected with the modern; old Africa and new Africa are blended; and texts and interpretations are united to understand the past, to teach about the past, allowing us to reflect more profoundly on an era that we continue to hold in awe for its achievements, the endurance of its ideas, the brilliance of its scholars, and the grandeur of its institutions. ‚ÄĒToyin Falola ¬†University Distinguished Professor and the Frances Higginbotham Nalle Centennial Professor, University of Texas at Austin, and the Mwalimu Julius Nyerere Chair of Modern Africa At-Large, Benue State University, Nigeria The appearance of Mahmud Kati's¬†Tarikh al Fattash¬†in English translation is long overdue.¬†¬†In the years to come, we may look forward to the appearance of more neglected classics from Timbuktu and elsewhere in West Africa, in both Arabic and Ajami. Wise's new volume, with its very readable translation and helpful introduction, performs an important service for African literary studies. ‚ÄĒFallou Ngom Associate Professor of Anthropology and Director of the African Language Program, Boston University Thanks need to be given to Christopher Wise and Haba Abu Taleb for resurrecting¬†Tarikh al-Fattashor¬†The Timbuktu Chronicles, which is now available in English because of their translation.

Ivan Van Sertima Book UK They Came Before Columbus 978-0812968170
Ivan Van Sertima They Came Before Columbus £ 14.99
They Came Before Columbus shows us a dramatic, thought-provoking, and incredibly detailed documentation of the presence and legacy of Africans in ancient America. In They Came Before Columbus, we see clearly the unmistakable black Africans in pre-Columbian America, and their overwhelming impact on the civilisations they came into contact with. Examining navigation and shipbuilding; cultural analogies between Native Americans and Africans; the transportation of plants, animals, and textiles between the continents; and the written and griot accounts of the explorers themselves, Ivan Van Sertima builds a mountain of evidence to support his claim of an African presence in the New World centuries before Columbus. Van Sertima remakes some of the most powerful scenes of human history with his gift of storytelling: the launching of the great ships of Mali in 1310, the sea expedition of the Mandingo king in 1311 and many others. Published September 23rd 2003. 336 Pages.

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.

Stanley Lane-Poole Book UK The Story Of The Moors In Spain 978-0-933121-19-5-32
Stanley Lane-Poole The Story Of The Moors In Spain £ 15.99
"a chronicle of splendor and tragedy" In the introduction, John G. Jackson describes this preeminent work as "a chronicle of splendor and tragedy, and no one has told the story better than Stanley Lane-Poole." This book is a classic and was first published in 1886. It tells the story of the medieval Islamic cultures and the history of their invasion and subsequent life in Spain. Review - "It tells of what they brought to a medieval Spain, of their art, their great learning, their poetry, their refined ways, their cleanliness, while Christian Europe were still in the habit of shunning washing themselves or their clothing, of their excellent ways with agriculture, turning Southern Spain into a luxurious place of tropical plant growth and rich harvests. It also tells of the murder and plunder which both the Christians and the Muslims engaged in, of the petty jealousies and the power struggles. A real eye-opener, a valuable work for those that want to study human nature. I loved the descriptions of the Alhambra and of the gardens of Cordova. I quote: "Here is everything to delight a southern voluptuary: fruits, flowers, fragrance, green arbours and myrtle hedges, delicate air and gushing water..." and "..But its night is always perfumes, for morning pours on it her grey amber, and night her black musk." I would recommend this book to all lovers of history, and it is told in a most fascinating way". Published in 1886, 1990. 295 pages.
