This review is from: Black Egyptians: The African Origins of Ancient Egypt (Paperback)
Black Egyptians for me serves as a long awaited handbook or manual into a topic that is right at the heart of my identity as a man of Black African ethnicity. The issues of origin and identity are a crucial part of one's life and an important feature in nature. The origin of the world as well as man's origin continues to be a pertinent topics of science while the negative effects of mistaken identity or ignorance about history can be seen in many of the ethnic minority youths of today. As such I have rated this book as 4/5 because it tackles a subject that tends to be swept under the carpet in today's world.
The book is fresh and easy to read, giving the experience of having a discussion or audience with the author. As opposed to a polished novel by a major publisher, ‘Black Egyptians’ is a raw and genuine insight into the mind of the self confessed Nuwabian.
The book doesn’t challenge Christianity or other faiths, neither does it claim to be the foremost treatise on the subject of creation and man’s origins. What it does is to present evidence to the reader and draw conclusions based on research; linking archeology and astronomy with history and culture to give a very plausible case for the history of the blacks.
Many of the theories could appear farfetched and may leave the reader with more questions than answers. In any case an extensive list of references allows the reader to further investigate and fuel a quest of his or her own.
i would recommend this book to both the afro centric and the neutral academic. It wont reinforce unfounded dogmatic beliefs or blind skepticism, what it does is to thrust the reader well into his or her journey to gaining 'right knowledge'.
