From Babylon to Timbuktu Book Excerpt:

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.Because of the scarce literature on the contributions of blacks to world civilizations, most people today hold the erroneous opinion that the black races have little real history. It was not known, for instance, that the ancient Hebrews, Mesopotamians, Phoenicians, and Egyptians were black. Now, a growing body of literature is presenting the illustrious history of the blacks and their enormous contributions.This carefully researched book is a significant addition to this vital field of knowledge. It sets forth in fascinating detail the history, from earliest recorded times, of the black races of the Middle East and Africa. Dr. Windsor's discussion of Islamic civilization and the movement of the black Hebrew to all parts of Africa is edifying and absorbing. Readers, regardless to race, will find this factual story of a noble heritage a valuable enrichment to their knowledge of world history.

The Untold Story Book Excerpt:

THE UNTOLD STORY is a depiction of a chosen people who civilized the continents of Africa and Asia. These chosen people were Ethiopians. There are five central characters in this book: Enoch, Noah, Moses, Abraham and Jesus Christ. The Untold Story provides a vivid and accurate account of a chosen people who were specifically selected by God to be his people, to live accordantly to his will, but failed to live up to his expectations. This eventually caused a deportation out of their land in Israel and parts of Africa. They are now scattered throughout the world. This book also provides a history of the many nationalities that make up the world as you see it today, the history of religions and who started them, and lastly the Anti-Christ. You will find that this book will challenge the mind to know more of man's origin and one's family tree. This book will be helpful in both churches and schools.

The importance of blacks for Jews and Jews for blacks in conceiving of themselves as Americans, when both remained outsiders to the privileges of full citizenship, is a matter of voluminous but perplexing record. A monumental work of literary criticism and cultural history, Strangers in the Land draws upon politics, sociology, law, religion, and popular culture to illuminate a vital, highly conflicted interethnic partnership over the course of a century.

It is written: ‘what had been hidden from the wise and prudent, has now been made known to babes and suckling,’ Here’s a book that has revealed the truth about the NAME of the God of Creation. And we cannot truly call upon the name of the Lord, as the Bible entreats us to do, if we don’t KNOW His name. Many people have written books about the name(s) of God. And what’s disheartening, is that not one of those so-called names is the REVEALED name of God.

Biblical Ancestry Voyage Book Excerpt:

Biblical Ancestry Voyage reveals facts of significant black characters in the Holy Bible of several ethnic groups of humankind, especially people of color. Further, to dispel the false notion that the Holy Bible was written for Anglo-Saxon ethnic people. (This has been the status quo of the teaching almost worldwide as it relates to God's use of ethnic people listed in the Holy Bible.) I pray that this writing will saturate the minds and hearts of both young and old of every ethnic group of the human race in respect to God's crown of His creation: mankind. My spiritual gift of teaching, preaching, under-shepherding, symposium leader, and writing has been a labor of love for over sixty-two years designed for the extension of the kingdom of God. My goal is to accurately portray and exegete from an ancestry point of view, and biblical interpretation of the Bible's message pointing to biblical characters of color, no matter their skin pigmentation. This truth has been distorted for many years, causing millions of ethnic people to feel left out of the divine design of god Almighty. The force of my biblical episcopate ministry is in the area of shaping the hopes and hurts, success and failures, joys and sorrows of the saints of my parish flock, as well as others. I envision as a part of my divine commission to be an encouraging cheerleader for the affluent and the downtrodden throughout their life and a confidant for their triumphs. The righteous acts that we do for God give Him pleasure! Until He comes, I am Serving Christ joyfully, Bishop Dr. Wm. LaRue Dillard

The Earth Book Excerpt:

This history of mankind has revealed he has produced great inventions, wonderful works of art, discoveries, and has created a fragile family unit. The Love of man has been revealed in our souls by; poetry, history and by his devotion to his God. Man efforts of love have slowly declined over his years on Earth. It needs to be motivated and patiently encouraged. This is my intent for writing this book; that one might grow in their love and touch the world that starving for Godly love. Godly love is not like Mans love; it has no expectations, no paybacks; but given freely without cause. I hope to motivate this Godly love within you. God created the world and made it a world of many colors. He beautified the world the colors of the rainbow. Everything that God created was colored to his perfection; including man. Man does not see the things created by God as perfect as they were created, because man only visualize with his eyes. God expected man to visualize the beauty that he created with all of his senses; including his spiritual sense; his heart.

Chosen People Book Excerpt:

Named Outstanding Academic Title by CHOICE Winnter of the Wesley-Logan Prize of the American Historical Association Winner of the Byron Caldwell Smith Book Prize Winner of the 2014 Albert J. Raboteau Book Prize for the Best Book in Africana Religions Jacob S. Dorman offers new insights into the rise of Black Israelite religions in America, faiths ranging from Judaism to Islam to Rastafarianism all of which believe that the ancient Hebrew Israelites were Black and that contemporary African Americans are their descendants. Dorman traces the influence of Israelite practices and philosophies in the Holiness Christianity movement of the 1890s and the emergence of the Pentecostal movement in 1906. An examination of Black interactions with white Jews under slavery shows that the original impetus for Christian Israelite movements was not a desire to practice Judaism but rather a studied attempt to recreate the early Christian church, following the strictures of the Hebrew Scriptures. A second wave of Black Israelite synagogues arose during the Great Migration of African Americans and West Indians to cities in the North. One of the most fascinating of the Black Israelite pioneers was Arnold Josiah Ford, a Barbadian musician who moved to Harlem, joined Marcus Garvey's Black Nationalist movement, started his own synagogue, and led African Americans to resettle in Ethiopia in 1930. The effort failed, but the Black Israelite theology had captured the imagination of settlers who returned to Jamaica and transmitted it to Leonard Howell, one of the founders of Rastafarianism and himself a member of Harlem's religious subculture. After Ford's resettlement effort, the Black Israelite movement was carried forward in the U.S. by several Harlem rabbis, including Wentworth Arthur Matthew, another West Indian, who creatively combined elements of Judaism, Pentecostalism, Freemasonry, the British Anglo-Israelite movement, Afro-Caribbean faiths, and occult kabbalah. Drawing on interviews, newspapers, and a wealth of hitherto untapped archival sources, Dorman provides a vivid portrait of Black Israelites, showing them to be a transnational movement that fought racism and its erasure of people of color from European-derived religions. Chosen People argues for a new way of understanding cultural formation, not in terms of genealogical metaphors of "survivals," or syncretism, but rather as a "polycultural" cutting and pasting from a transnational array of ideas, books, rituals, and social networks.

Race and Religion Among the Chosen People of Crown Heights Book Excerpt:

In August of 1991, the Brooklyn neighborhood of Crown Heights was engulfed in violence following the deaths of Gavin Cato and Yankel Rosenbaum—a West Indian boy struck by a car in the motorcade of a Hasidic spiritual leader and an orthodox Jew stabbed by a Black teenager. The ensuing unrest thrust the tensions between the Lubavitch Hasidic community and their Afro-Caribbean and African American neighbors into the media spotlight, spurring local and national debates on diversity and multiculturalism. Crown Heights became a symbol of racial and religious division. Yet few have paused to examine the nature of Black-Jewish difference in Crown Heights, or to question the flawed assumptions about race and religion that shape the politics—and perceptions—of conflict in the community. In Race and Religion among the Chosen Peoples of Crown Heights, Henry Goldschmidt explores the everyday realities of difference in Crown Heights. Drawing on two years of fieldwork and interviews, he argues that identity formation is particularly complex in Crown Heights because the neighborhood’s communities envision the conflict in remarkably diverse ways. Lubavitch Hasidic Jews tend to describe it as a religious difference between Jews and Gentiles, while their Afro-Caribbean and African American neighbors usually define it as a racial difference between Blacks and Whites. These tangled definitions are further complicated by government agencies who address the issue as a matter of culture, and by the Lubavitch Hasidic belief—a belief shared with a surprising number of their neighbors—that they are a “chosen people” whose identity transcends the constraints of the social world. The efforts of the Lub­avitch Hasidic community to live as a divinely chosen people in a diverse Brooklyn neighbor­hood where collective identi­ties are generally defined in terms of race illuminate the limits of American multiculturalism—a concept that claims to celebrate diversity, yet only accommodates variations of certain kinds. Taking the history of conflict in Crown Heights as an invitation to reimagine our shared social world, Goldschmidt interrogates the boundaries of race and religion and works to create space in American society for radical forms of cultural difference.

The Scythians Book Excerpt:

The majority of people on Earth are racially mixed, largely due to ancient historic clashes between blacks and whites. All the ancient nations of antiquity were black. The present political situation of blacks in America is due to their lack of knowledge of war philosophy, and the use of force and violence in the social organization of the state, as well as the liberation of colonial oppression here and in Africa. The book shows a white falsification of history. There is a war being waged against black people in America and in Africa to maintain an insidious global white supremacy.

What s Wrong With Being Black Book Excerpt:

Thoroughly researched and extensively referenced, this highly credible work uses evidence from biblical, anthropological, historical, and ancient literature sources dating as far back as 3,000 years ago to support the facts that: People of color have a positive history. People of color were the first to give structure and order in society. Scripture cites Black role models. Current issues such as idolatry and slavery have their roots in the practices of ancestors. Color was not used as a segregating tool until 300 years ago. Racial equality is a truth Black people have different issues. There is nothing wrong with being black. I have said,...all of you are children of the most High (Psalm 82:6). Pastor of the largest church in Western Europe, Matthew Ashimolowo looks at the glorious past of the Black race and examines uncompromisingly the conformations that have molded Black people. His fascinating insight celebrates the rich heritage and confronts today s challenges.

Conquistadors of the Red City The Moroccan Conquest of the Songhay Empire Book Excerpt:

Conquistadors of the Red City: The Moroccan Conquest of the Songhay Empire recounts the ambitions of a sixteenth century Moroccan ruler to defy geography and send his army across the Sahara Desert in search of the elusive gold fields of West Africa. In destroying the empire of the Songhay, the Moroccans established a trans-Saharan state, but their quest for riches proved to be futile and ruinous, for themselves and for the entire region. This extraordinary chapter of African history is told through Moroccan and West African chroniclers, as well as Western travelers and hostages at the Moroccan imperial court in Marrakech. Their unique perspectives offer rare insight into one of the most important chapters in the history of early modern Africa, and the precursor of an even more devastating phase of the exploitation of the continent—the Atlantic slave trade.

Yahweh for Christians Book Excerpt:

Yahweh for Christians: I Am Original Words, Original Truth By: Messianic Rabbi Minister Yahonathan Daweed Yahweh for Christians is a work unlike any other on your book shelf. No other work of this weight and of this topic gives us a historical examination across the history of man as this work does. Yahweh for Christians states that there is an epic struggle between the Sacred Name, and an intelligent opponent, that goes beyond our appreciation. This attack is not benign, but is violent, and affects all life as we know it. This battle defines our conscious and unconscious lives, so that we do not know that true life is altered beyond recognition. As such, this is plenarily deleterious to our existence. Yahweh for Christians will present actual history, revealing the collateral lies of wrote history. It will connect the dots to creation, Judaism, Catholicism, Christianity, Islam, Japheth, Shem, Ham, Egypt, Greco-Rome, Germany, the dark ages, the crusades, Great Britain, slavery, the world wars, our present time, and our soon coming end. All of which is a complex, systematic, intelligent designed orchestration of spiritual warfare of a great lie versus a great truth. If this struggle is so ranging and daunting as stated above, then this work is one of grave importance. The simplicity of word study is the chief tool utilized by this work, to access the etiology of knowledge. Original words will deposit the student to original truth. םלש

Revolutionary Threads Book Excerpt:

An American Rastafarian “offers a vibrant examination of American and African history with an anti-colonial patina . . . engaging” (Kirkus Reviews). Revolutionary Threads offers an American Rasta’s retelling of episodes in American history with an anticolonial thrust, accented by Bobby Sullivan’s own personal experiences. The book ties together various subjects while returning each time to the culture of Rastafari, social justice movements, and cooperative economics. From how we perceive history in general, America's precolonial past, and global capitalism’s early development and the resistance to it, to political prisoners and a celebration of religious tolerance, the book approaches North America with an African-centric perspective. Sullivan dispels the oversimplification of our perceptions of Rastafari, as well as other cultures, in the age of the Internet, where the loudest voices are often the most extreme and divisive. Revolutionary Threads aims to serve as a unifying agent for our all-too-connected global village, and for the resistance to the consolidation of global capital and all its excesses. “A post-hardcore rock star, community activist, and social justice intellectual offers an alternative look at countercolonial history through the lens of the Rastafari movement.” —Kirkus Reviews “Outlining his philosophical influences and backpacking through history and criss-crossing continental borders, Sullivan puts his enlightenment journey and way of life, which includes activism for social justice, prison outreach, and cooperative economics, on paper.” —The Gleaner (Jamaica) “[Sullivan] meticulously sources his work throughout, whether providing a Howard Zinn-like take on the settlement of America by Africans predating Columbus, or in discussing political prisoners like Marilyn Buck . . . an engaging, lively, well-thought book which provides a picture of Rastafarianism in action, for punks and beyond.” —Razorcake
