The most important thing Dr. Williams does for all people is to answer the question of how did Africa get to the point it currently is in. He pulls back the covers to reveal that the rest of the world did not just pass Africa by, but actively saught to keep Africa back. First, Arabia then Western Europe and its satalites have been robbing and suppressing Africa for centuries.
This book is a must read, if you want to understand where we are now and how we got here.
There is a reoccurring theme in this book. Indigenous Africans gain power and indigenous Africans lose power. That statement sums up this book briefly. Mr. Williams goes into detail to explain how a black Egypt could be viewed by the world as being white. The answers to this question can be found starting with chapter two entitled Ethiopia's Oldest Daughter: Egypt. In this chapter, he proposes "the mulatto problem" which I feel is key in understanding how the face of early Africa was changed. When other groups of people came in from the east the Africans allowed them to assimilate into their culture. There were many interracial unions, which allowed for a mixture of kin. This mixture of kin is what lead to the demise of the total black African state. Time and time of again people who did not have a natural birth right to any African state were allowed to do so based on marriage or kinship. This is why Mr. Williams study shows how indigenous African flip-flop control of power so frequently. Whenever indigenous African took control of Egypt the power was relinquish due to an interracial unions or kinship not to mention the violence and acts of war. Again, in many ways this scenario is a reoccurring them throughout this book. The early African inability to hold on to what was natural his has cause others to question whether he should be given any credit at all. Mr. Williams traces what happen and he gives excellent details.Read more ›
However, this book is more than just a book on Ancient African civilization. It is a book which explains the strengths and the weaknesses of the Blacks, and the author is highly objective, explaining how Blacks often hurt themselves in addition to the onslaught of Arab and later European domination. The author shows that, without a doubt, the original builders of the pyramids in both Nubia and Egypt were Black Africans, not Europeans, Arabs, or other Semitic peoples.
My problem with this book is the numerous grammar mistakes I found throughout. While it is normal for some books to have a few grammar errors, this book has more than it should have, and that hurts it a lot. They need to get an editor to fix these mistakes and publish a new edition to the book. However, I checked everything the author talked about and his research is dead on, he mentions African people and civilizations that I didn't even know existed.
Another criticism I have of this book is the plan that the author offers for the Black race in the last few chapters.Read more ›
