Scholars and laity of Caucasian descent around the world are of the opinion that the history of Africa is very fragile and of no importance. They believe also that civilization came to Africa only after the Europeans infiltrated the continent. It is the intention of the author of this book to provide concrete information that this belief is false. It will also show that Africa is not only the cradle of civilization, but also gave birth to the world at large and to what is known as "man." More generally, it ponders the position of the black race in society and the descendants of African slaves who are dispersed all over the world as a result of the slave trade. More specifically, it focuses on African-Americans who have suffered greatly in America for over three hundred years as a result of segregation and who carry the stigma of slavery wherever they go. The division between African-Americans and blacks from other parts of the world, especially the Caribbean islands, is highlighted to show the divisiveness between these groups as a result of white provocation. As you engage this text, certain contributory elements will stand out more forcefully than others; namely: that Africa is the source of civilization. Beneath the Sahara desert lays the history of the Black man. My own brothers rounded me up for transshipment. Recompense is due to the descendants of the slave trade, and black consciousness must come to the forefront.
