With Complete Proof - A Short Cut to The World History of The Negro J.A. Rogers devoted over fifty years of his life to his research. He had not only looked at world history but also at the history of people of African origin, and has show how their history is an inseparable part of the history of mankind. First published in 1934 and revised in 1962, this book gathers journalist and historian Joel Augustus Rogers' columns from the syndicated newspaper feature titled Your History. Patterned after the look of Ripley's popular Believe It or Not the multiple vignettes in each episode recount short items from Rogers's research. The feature began in the Pittsburgh Courier in November 1934 and ran through the 1960s. Review - "I really liked this. Or rather, I liked J.A. Rogers' insistent energy to be believed in this tiny book. Rogers lists all sorts of African accomplishments and deeds and categorizes them in lists such as Ancient Civilizations, Sex, Religion, Rulers, Slavery, etc. A lot of this information not included in your typical mainstream lesson. And apparently Rogers traveled all over Europe to gather this info from different museums and libraries, so I'll definitely want to check out his other works". Published May 1st 1995. 72 pages.
This book is a new original translation of the Ancient Egyptian Book of the Deadbased on surviving papyri from Ancient Egypt " I Know myself, I know myself, I am One With God!-From the Pert Em Heru "The Ru Pert em Heru" or "Ancient Egyptian Book of The Dead," or "Book of Coming Forth By Day" as it is more popularly known, has fascinated the world since the successful translation of Ancient Egyptian hieroglyphic scripture over 150 years ago. The astonishing writings in it reveal that the Ancient Egyptians believed in life after death and in an ultimate destiny to discover the Divine. The elegance and aesthetic beauty of the hieroglyphic text itself has inspired many see it as an art form in and of itself. But is there more to it than that? Did the Ancient Egyptian wisdom contain more than just aphorisms and hopes of eternal life beyond death? In this volume Dr. Muata Ashby, the author of over 25 books on Ancient Egyptian Yoga Philosophy has produced a new translation of the original texts which uncovers a mystical teaching underlying the sayings and rituals instituted by the Ancient Egyptian Sages and Saints. "Once the philosophy of Ancient Egypt is understood as a mystical tradition instead of as a religion or primitive mythology, it reveals its secrets which if practiced today will lead anyone to discover the glory of spiritual self-discovery. The Pert em Heru is in every way comparable to the Indian Upanishads or the Tibetan Book of the Dead."
"The Book of Coming Forth by Day." Throughout its history, the influence of the Book of the Dead has been considerable, particularly as it was translated by the well-known Egyptologist E.A. Wallis Budge in 1899. The true title of this work should be, "The Book of Coming Forth by Day." It's purpose was to provide the dead pharaoh with the knowledge necessary to navigate the world of the dead so that he may be able to take his place on the great solar barge. This is a beautiful book - a large-format facsimile reproduction of the Papyrus of Ani in large color images with translation of the hieroglyphs beneath. The pictures comprising the bulk of the book are not of the Papyrus itself, held captive in the British National Museum; rather it is a reproduction of a carefully-made imitation of the original. The translation is readable and there are several useful essays and commentaries written by competent egyptologists. Review - "The Papyrus of Ani from the XXVII Dynasty (1500-1400 BC) is one of the earliest, most completed, and most beautifully illuminated exemplars of papyri known as a " Book of the Dead", or guide to the Egyptian After Life. As such it has received scrupulous attention by scholars and Egyptologists to ensure, as much as possible, an accurate translation and scholarly interpretation of the this most important primary historical document. I strongly urge all readers with a general interest in the history of the world of the Ancients and in particular those with an interest in Ancient Egypt to read this text".

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.

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.
Great Issues of a Race from 4500 B.C. to 2000 The Destruction of Black Civilization took Chancellor Williams 16 years of research and field study to compile. The book, which was to serve as a reinterpretation of the history of the African race, was intended to be "a general rebellion against the subtle message from even the most liberal white authors and their Negro disciples: "You belong to a race of nobodies. You have no worthwhile history to point to with pride." The book was written at a time when many black students, educators, and scholars were starting to piece together the connection between the way their history was taught and the way they were perceived by others and by themselves. They began to question assumptions made about their history and took it upon themselves to create a new body of historical research. The book is premised on the question: If the Blacks were among the very first builders of civilization and their land the birthplace of civilization, what has happened to them that has left them, since then, at the bottom of world society? Precisely, what happened? The Caucasian answer is simple and well known: The Blacks have always been at the bottom." Williams, instead, contends that many elements - nature, imperialism, and stolen legacies - have aided in the destruction of the black civilization. The Destruction of Black Civilization is revelatory and revolutionary because it offers a new approach to the research, teaching, and study of African history by shifting the main focus from the history of Arabs and Europeans in Africa to the Africans themselves. The book, thus, offers "a history of blacks that is a history of blacks". "Because, only from history can we learn what our strengths were and, especially, in what particular aspect we are weak and vulnerable. Our history can then become at once the foundation and guiding light for united efforts in serious planning what we should be about now."
This carefully researched book is a significant addition to this vital unraveling of knowledge. It sets forth, in fascinating detail, the history, from earliest recorded times, of the black races of the Middle East and Africa. Dr. Rudolph R. Windsor is an internationally known author and speaker in the areas of history, and self-development. He is the author of five books. Review - "If you are one who is interested in cultural issues, historic issues, or have a deep sense of intuition this book is for you! Babylon to Timbuktu contains a vast wealth of historic knowledge that is very valuable particularly to persons of colour". First published January 1st 1969. 151 pages.

I love reading Chancellor Williams. The Destruction of Black Civilization provides the blue print and the analysis from which the African Diaspora may reach and find the strength for positive self development. The book employs the use of focussing on great civilizations as an impetus for returning to pride in the African culture. I am using this book in my Africa American History class, because African American students must realize the brilliant and intellectual structures from which their heritage eminate. I am going to say more about this wonderful book". Published June 14th 2017. 386 pages.

The Encyclopedia of Black Studies is the leading reference source for dynamic and innovative research on the Black experience. The concept for the encyclopedia was developed from the successful Journal of Black Studies (SAGE) and contains a full analysis of the economic, political, sociological, historical, literary, and philosophical issues related to Americans of African descent. This single-volume reference is the vanguard of the recent explosive growth in quality scholarship in the field. More than a chronicle of black culture or black people, this encyclopedia deals with the emergence and maturity of an intellectual field over the past four decades. Beginning with the protests at San Francisco State College in 1967 that led to the first degree-granting department of Black Studies, the field′s rapid growth over time necessitates an authoritative account of the discipline.
The ideas behind the 11 Laws are very much needed today, one cannot dispute that. The 11 laws are really laws and not commandments. For example, they are the spiritual equivalent to what we understand as physical laws such as the law of cause and effect, In Maat: The 11 Laws of God, Ra Un Nefer Amen shares revelations he has received concerning the laws governing the principles and forces that influence and govern people’s lives. By observing these laws, any spiritually mature person will gain access to wisdom and power and thus serve as a vehicle for the manifestation of God in the world.
Dr. Ben, also known as Yosef Alfredo Antonio Ben-Jochannan. Celebrates Africa Mother in an lecture/essay style format. Dr. Ben identifies and corrects myths about the inferiority and primitiveness of the indigenous African peoples and their descendants. Review "Dr. Yosef Ben-Jochannan is an incredible scholar. He has done such excellent work in the recovery of Ancient African history. His particular thesis demonstrates that Africa, as the Mother of Civilization, birthed much of the ideology of Western Civilization. Through the Middle Passage, much of the European slave traders denigrated Africans and African history, suggesting that African history contributed nothing to the world. Texts like Dr. Ben's text emphasize the importance and the major contributions that Africans and African history has made to the world, generally, but specifically to the Western Cultural and Western Civilization feature. Before the Romans, Before the Greeks, the Egyptians, the Nubians, the culture of Kemet, existed in Africa, and Dr. Ben artiuclates and demonstrates how these cultures reached a high level of civilization in spite fo the anti-African sentiments that were very prominent in the 19th century. This is a very good book". Published 1971, 1988. 750 pages.

According to countless mainstream news organs, Elijah Muhammad, by far, was the most powerful black man in America of his time. Known more for the students he produced, like Malcolm X, Louis Farrakhan and Muhammad Ali, this controversial man exposed the black man as well as the world to a teaching, till now, was only used behind closed doors of high degree Masons and Shriners. An easy and smart read. The book approaches the question of what and who is God. It compares the concept held by religions to nature and mathematics. It also explores the origin of the original man, mankind, devil, heaven and hell. Its title, Message To The Blackman, is directed to the American Blacks specifically, but addresses blacks universally as well.
"The accounts of the successful strivings of Negroes for enlightenment under most adverse circumstances read like beautiful romances of a people in an heroic age". The adverse circumstances to which Woodson refers occurred during the antebellum period, from the beginning of slavery to the Civil War. In this work he chronicles the educational endeavors of Africans in America during this timeframe. He does so with the hope of Ònarrating in brief how benevolent teachers of both races strove to give antebellum Negroes the education through which many of them gained freedom in its highest and best sense. The renewed interest in Carter G. Woodson's minor masterpiece, The Mis-Education of the Negro, has led to interest in his other writings of this subject. His book The Education of the Negro should be read in relationship to understanding his more known book on the subject, The Mis-Education of the Negro. --Dr. John Henrik Clarke.

Classical Greatness From first-hand observations and study. Volney demonstrates that early Nile Valley Africans provided a basis for the civilization of his time. Review - "Instead of looking to Greece and Rome as the cradle of civilization, he considers Egypt to be more ancient, thus confronting the prejudice against African races of his era. We can still learn from this book as he was trying to distinguish the characteristics of civilization that make it last for millennia". Published 1793*, 1991. 219 pages.
The Star of Deep Beginnings represents perhaps the most ambitious work yet by Charles S. Finch III. The title, derived from a Dogon name for Sirius B. reflects the cosmic nature of African science. This book represents an exploration of the sciences of the world as they first took shape in northeast Africa. We find that metallurgy, mathematics, architecture, astronomy, engineering, navigation, and physics are products of the wisdom and world-experience of Africa, as especially personified by the priest-scientists of the Nile Valley and those of the Bandiagara Cliffs of Mali, home of the Dogon.
...And Afterwards The Egyptian God Of Medicine. The author of this volume, himself a doctor of medicine, is inclined to chide the medical profession for neglecting its true patron saint, who was in practice more than two thousand years before either Hippocrates or Galen. It is doubtless-partly to help Imhotep to his own that Dr. Hurry has written the present book. It is, as it could not but be, based on Sethc's masterly memoir on the same subject written twenty-four years ago. There is not much to be added to this Sethe's work does not age rapidly but what there is Dr. Hurry has found and added. The most striking additions are the Nechautis Papyrus from Oxy-rhynchus, which, if its story could be trusted, would put back the full deification of Imhotep by 2000 years, Gauthier's article on the Imhotep festival, and Milne's on the graffiti in the Sanatorium of Der cl-Bahr”. We are at a loss, however, to understand why he has completely ignored the account of King Zoser given by both the epitomisers of Manetho the Egyptian historian, which, if Sethe's clever and convincing conjecture be correct, is a description of Imhotep himself. Imhotep: the Vizier and Physician of King Zoser and afterwards the Egyptain God of Medicine. By Dr. Jamieson B. Hurry
