Book Description

1 Sep 2003
Until comparatively recent times, knowledge that black Africa was the seat of highly evolved civilizations and cultures during a time when Europe stagnated was limited to a small group of scholars. That great empires such as Ghana, and later, Mali flourished for centuries while Europe slept through its dark ages almost has been ignored by historians. Thousands of years before that, as Rudolph R. Windsor notes in this enlightening book, civilizations began with the black races of Africa and Asia, including the Hebrews, who in Biblical times were jet black. Then, western Europe had no nations as such, and its stone age inhabitants had but the crudest tools and lived in caves.

5.0 out of 5 stars Seeker's Of The True 20 Feb 2012
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
Rudolph Windsor in his book From Babylon to Timbuktu: A History of Ancient Black Races including the Black Hebrews presents a thoroughly comprehensive history of the original Jews within the backdrop of ancient History. He traces their origins in Babylon within the loins of their forefather Abraham up to their birth and growth in the land of Canaan all the way up to their final dispersion from Palestine in 70 AD into the greater part of Africa, leading west.

Mr. Windsor exhibits a level of truth-telling that I have only seen in a few books.
He traces the history of the black African Hebrews of Egypt and Ethiopia. We are given lucid glimpses into the Tabiban Kamant and Wasambara Jews who are presently known as the Falashim of Ethiopia. He also takes on intellectual excursions into the backgrounds of the Jews of the Malagasy Republic, which is present day Madagascar. And from there, the reader treks in to the world of the North African Jews to the black Jewish kingdom of Ghana. Out of the Jewish kingdom of Ghana, Windsor relays the interesting story of Eldad the Danite who informed the Algerians of this Hebrew empire south of the Sahara in the western Sudan. Eldad lived in the ninth century. (p. 92)

It was from Windsor's book that I began to scientifically consider the so-called "black race" originating from Asia and not Africa. He quotes a Herbert Wendt, a white German scholar who asserts, "All indications point to the fact that Asia was the cradle of the Black race." (p.35) Wendt certainly makes some unsettling conclusions in his book It Began in Babel, another good book that is out-of-print.

Windsor maintains that even the early Talmudic scholars were black, the eminent Moses Maimonides (aka "Rambam") being one of them. (p.

5.0 out of 5 stars Awesome, insightful book. 15 Jun 2014

Awesome, insightful book. Even though I don't 100% agree with everything in it as I'm still doing my own research. It's definitely a must read for those who want a more accurate understanding of history, rather than that garbage we were taught in school.

5.0 out of 5 stars A must read 20 May 2014
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
Since late teens I wondered how on earth Jews living in Israel could be white. An genuine and quite innocently puzzling thought which had been at the back of my mind for some 20 odd years. In recent years this niggling thought is beginning to be answered. The current Jews are not real Jews!

The original Israelites were Black people.

This book provides a history not taught in uk schools or in fact among the Black community but which fills in some of the questions such as how the races came to be, tying this in which Biblical accounts.

We are fallible and no human being has ever been 100% right but this book goes a long way to confirm that the Hebrew Abrahamic race, written of in the Bible, were in fact Black people.

Whether this is your first book in the search for the truth of who are the original Israelites or one of many, this book is a essential read.
