The research is impeccable and the conclusions cannot be denied.

Author Yosef A.A. ben-Jochannan impressively gets past the lies and false accounts that unfortunatelty has become religious doctrine to bring new meaning to the birthplace of civilization in mother Africa.

With a focus on Ethiopia and Egypt, the two lengthy pamphlets that make up the book puts into proper perspective the rich sciences, technologies, histories and languages - written & spoken - that emerged from these societies. There is a special emphasis on the creation of the white myths that deny the black Jewish faith - for example, the real history surrounding Ethiopia's Black Messiah -its rightful place in religious doctrine.

The research began in the 1930s, with material updated through the early 1980s. The layout is in pamphlet form from that era, which makes for a very difficult read. But the reader will learn through patience.

In the Dedication, ben-Jochannan writes, "This aspect of the history and heritage of the Black Jews is dedicated to all oppressed African People whose religion differ from those who control the power of life and death over most of us. Out of this it is hoped that a better understanding between African People will prevail in spite of religious differences. Remember; Religion is Nothing More, or Less, Than a Belief. And That Any One Of Them Is As Godly As Another."

As one, the truth shall be known. As one, love will truly reign supreme. As one, life, death and salvation will again have its righteous meaning.

The facts brought forth and established by students and scholars of such calibre are highly prized and thus invaluable, even if one disagrees with some points. I am sure its truly the intelligent mind and the unbiased spirit which appreciate these.
I do feel sorry for the "Racist" Bigot who commented before me who cant see beyond his "pale eyes" -let him and his vent, even fools have their story, even if there realy is no story.
Therefore, I highly recommend this book for those who seek facts on the subject matter, though not casually.

Format: Paperback
From the many captivities of the Jewish people, there are Jews of nearly every ethnic group. Solomon's liaisons with 1000 women of various nations, as well as Balaam's suggestion to the enemy king to have his army sleep with the temple prostitutes, would render mixed Jews from every corner of the world. Jews have been captive to many nations including Persia, Egypt, Italy (Rome), etc. under rulers such as Nebuchadnezzar, Cyrus, Artaxerxes, various Pharoahs, and Caesars. Furthermore, Abraham (father of the Jewish people) was never white. He was called away from his father's people who were Chaldeans (Mediterranean, if nothing else). And only people of African/Mediterranean descent form keloid scar tissue during the healing of wounds.

Very educational about Black Jews and their suffering because of skin color. Part of African history and should be in all libraries. Only wish the author would have broke it down to be able to read better.

This book reads more like a research/reference book than a novel. That aside its an excellent work written by an indigenous African Hebrew. Deals with a lot of pre-history, long lost or never discussed in the classroom.

The best work I have studied thus far confirming that the Ethiopians and not Whites are the real Jews of the Bible. A scholarly work.
Statements supported by Scripture and other scholars.

Even after going back & forth with Jay in his review here, I realize I too have a problem with the premise of this book. I found myself unable to to get past the idea that our beloved Dr. Ben's attitude towards this work is one of....charity! ... for lack of a better word! I think Dr. Ben's basic attitude or "bias" is a result of him being, frankly, a DIE HARD "Kemet Head" to the CORE! I don't know that Dr. Ben had the best approach to this work. For one thing Ethiopian Jews however sincere are NOT the "source" of Judaism or the Hebrew Faith!
For me to approach a topic like this one must have the mind to speak to/from the SEMITIC source of the Hebrew story or faith. For some strange reason I thought that Dr. Ben would "go there". Unless I got it wrong he didn't!
Ethiopian's are of Hamitic stock this would be more of a secondary source reference point of Hebrew history whereas the Semitic source would be a better footing.
Granted Dr. Ben a life-long disciple of Egyptology it is somewhat fitting that he would take the Hamitic road as a primary standpoint, I had hoped to hear him speak to the Semitic (Shem-itic) source.
There is a whole other theory in making descendants of Ham the principle jumping board that I think does a disservice to the truer Black origins of Shemitic Judaism.
Who is the "WE" in "We The Black Jews Witness to the White Jewish Race Myth?"
If that "we" are Ethiopians I would hope that they would also bear "witness" to the fact that they THEMSELVES are part of the "myths" of Judaism in that they like White Jews are ALSO converts.
So I am giving 2 stars based on what I feel is an erroneous premise.
