I first read this boo when I was 19 years old. It serves as the foundation and inspiration for me to pursue African history. The book is informative and documented. For me it was an awaken like no other.

Format: Paperback
I want to preface my remarks by saying that I am not an African history scholar nor have I read a lot about the subject. My purpose for purchasing this book was to learn about the origins of the great cultures that grew out of the African continent. I was partially satisfied.

Whereas much of the information that was provided was new to me, the total package left me wanting more. The format (a series of lectures) was very redundant with many chapters repeating the same information.

Being an American of African descent, I share the author's anger with the "experts" in the field that have re-written the history of Africa and her people to suit their own desires. However, I don't need to be reminded in every paragraph , in every chapter for 700 pages. I would have preferred more of the history and less of the diatribe.

Format: Paperback
Dr.Ben is an ethiopian jew by birth with knowledge of Hebrew, Greek,and Hieroglyphics, he is able to literaly read the hieroglyphics off the walls of ancient egypt and tell us how the people saw themselves and the world around them. He was a Professor at Al-Azhar University in Egypt teaching moden egyptians most of whom are descendants of arab invaders that ancient egypt is an african..i.e negro country, culture, religion, race,etc...Do you think they allowed him to do that to help him with his self esteem?...Or was it becuase he knew what he was talking about?
