The Story of Vanished Negro Civilizations - An intimate history of Africa and its ancient civilizations, the book opposed the stereotyped and often racist histories of Africa.
Today, a half century after its initial publication, African Glory still provides a vivid and dynamic connection to the African past. First published in 1954, a time when few books on African history were written from an African perspective.
Dr. J.C. deGraft-Johnson, born in Ghana, aka Gold Coast, He obtained his education in the United Kingdom receiving a PhD degree in Economics from Edinburgh University. At the same time, he was thoroughly familiar with the culture and history of his motherland, having received his early education in West African schools. These factors are ever present as one reads "The Story of Vanished Negro Civilizations."Elder Dr. John Henrik Clarke contributed the afterword for our edition. His afterword places African Glory and its author within the larger struggle for world wide African independence. Dr. Clarke also provided a supplemental bibliography that adds to the many sources cited in African Glory.
