Amos N. Wilson Blueprint For Black Power from £ 59.99
A Moral, Political And Economic Imperative For The Twenty-First Century. Blueprint for Black Power: A Moral, Political And Economic Imperative For The Twenty-First Century, details a master plan for the power revolution necessary for Black survival in the 21st century. Amos Wilson that an African American/Caribbean/Pan-African bloc would be most potent for the generation and delivery of Black power in the United States and the World to counter White and Asian power networks. By breaking down the U.S. elite power structure of government, political parties, think tanks, corporations, foundations, media, interest groups, banking and foreign investment particulars. Potentially strong Black institutions as the church, media and think tanks; industry; collectives such as investment clubs and credit unions; rotating credit associations such as Afrikan-originated esusu, tontine and partner are analyzed. Review - "The title “Blueprint for Blackpower” speaks for itself in that it is a guide to understanding, analyzing and overcoming social constructs that inhibit collective empowerment for people of the African diaspora. It’s a powerful book that can be referred to for years to come as a teaching tool to transform lives with the ultimate goal of changing the trajectory of communities. It will open the reader’s mind to a deeper understanding of the African Americans’ plight in an economical and political context. One concept deeply engraved in this book is analyzing the African American population in the context of a nation. This perspective allows Dr.Wilson to succinctly place and assess the predicament African Americans are in and a vision to get out. Highly Recommended!" Published January 1st 1998. 889 pages.

Raymond Winbush & Denise Wright The Osiris Papers £ 26.99
Reflections On The Life And Writings Of Dr. Francis Cress Welsing The Osiris Papers: Reflections on the Life and Writings of Dr. Frances Cress Welsing is intended to be the first of many treatises written to examine the life, theories, and contributions of Dr. Frances Cress Welsing. Some of these writings will be hagiographic. Some will be critical, but all will expand our understanding of one of the greatest African thinkers of the past 100 years. “There are so many things to feel about this woman” so for this volume, we assembled a group of scholars, social activists, and entertainers to write on one of the Nine Areas of White Supremacy outlined by Neely Fuller in his monumental work The United Independent Compensatory Code/System/Concept: A Compensatory Counter-Racist Code. You will learn how Mr. Fuller directly influenced the theories of Dr. Welsing. While Mr. Fuller asked “What is racism/white supremacy?,” Dr. Welsing asked “Why is there racism/white supremacy?” There is an important difference in these two queries and each will be answered in various ways throughout this volume by writers who 1) knew Dr. Welsing personally, 2) worked with her on various projects, or 3) are deeply familiar with her writings.
Yosef ben-Jochannan The Black Mans North And East Africa £ 21.99

Flora Shaw Lugard A Tropical Dependency £ 19.99
An Outline Of The Western Sudan With An Account Of The Moden Settlement Of Northern Nigeria. When Lady Lugard sat down to write A Tropical Dependency, it was not her intention to inspire generations of Africans to regain the independence of their countries. Lady Lugard, wife of a former British Colonial Governor of Nigeria, written during the colonial period. Providing readers with useful information and insights into the development of the states of Western Sudan. Lugard writes of slavery as though it was a God-given right of Europeans to own Africans as slaves. Ironically, her text on Africa's place in history reaffirms the belief that "If Africa did it once, Africa can do it again!" Introduction by John Henrik Clarke. Review - "Liberal and open-minded for its day.Flora Shaw's history was deeply researched. She wrote well and was clearly fascinated with her subject - the region known now as Nigeria (which name she invented) - though she was clearly far more interested in the northern, Muslim peoples.Shaw was a remarkable journalist and writer - married to the first colonial governor of Nigeria, Sir Frederick Lugard". Published 1906*, 1997. 508 pages.
Chinweizu Decolonising The African Mind from £ 44.99
Sheds light on the continual exploitation of Africa by the West In this sequel to The West And The Rest Of Us, Chinweizu questions the colonial mentality, in its various manifestations, and how it has continually obstructed African economic development and cultural renaissance since political decolonization was achieved. And while it is generally known about the deleterious effects of European colonialism on African development, in Decolonising the African Mind, Chinweizu uncompromisingly reveals the same deleterious effects Arab colonialism has had on African development, in contrast to the generally held notion that domination of Africans by Arabs was some type of benign conquest in comparison to the white man. Chinweizu accurately stuns the reader that Europeans and Arabs have historical had their own political designs on the African continent, which was not for the benefit of African people. What becomes clear while reading this book, is that no matter what propaganda tries to suggest, Africa is not an overseas cash cow or provenience for Europeans or Arabs. Africans around the world must maintain the unapologetically and uncompromisingly claim their African identity, as opposed to being lost in some “multicultural” melting pot, with identities like “person of colour”. Which is ironic, as majority of the world has colour, the only people without colour is Europeans, by understanding the invasion of Africa by Arabs, Africans can understand that liberation will not come by negating one’s African identity into the fraternity of “people of colour”. Then central objective in decolonising the African mind is to overthrow the authority which alien and detrimental traditions exercise over the African. This demands the dismantling of white supremacist beliefs, and the structures which uphold them, in every area of African life. One should certainly use items from other traditions provided they are consistent with African cultural independence and serve African objectives; but one should neither ape nor revere them, let alone sacrifice African interest to them. Review - "Sheds light on the continual exploitation of Africa by the West wherein the so-called development of Africa is actually a debt trap from which developed nations benefit. Much food for thought here. The author moves beyond the "blame game" and explores solutions. I was also struck by the honesty and fairness when it came to measuring the scale and impact of outside influences on African society, culture, art and literature". Published 1st January 1987. 294 pages.

Joseph J. Williams Hebrewisms Of West Africa £ 29.99
In this substantial body of work, Joseph J. Williams describes the Hebraic practices, customs, and beliefs, which he found among the people of Jamaica and the Ashanti of West Africa. First published in 1931 and long out-of-print, today’s reader will find Hebrewisms a valuable resource for understanding the cultural unity of African people. Joesph J. Williams examines the close relationship between the Jamaican and the Ashanti cultures, the folklore and belief systems. The language and culture of the Ashanti, who many Jamaicans have descended from, is also throughly studied by comparing them to well known and established Hebraic traditions. William’s findings suggest shocking similarities. And, he challenges the reader by concluding that Hebraic traditions must have swept across “negro Africa” and left its influence “among the various tribes.” While Williams presents a strong case, his evidence, including hundreds of quoted sources, also builds a strong case for the reverse—that an indigenous, continent-wide belief system among African people stands at the very root of Hebrew culture and Western religion. Review - "Joseph J Williams compiles many years of research that gives extensive details into the tribal customs of the people of West Africa. What I love and have always loved is the evidence it provides on the Hebrew customs and traditions practiced by many African Tribal Nations". Published May 20th 2003. 356 pages.

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.
