CHECK OUT MY OTHER BOOKS

If you want to learn about early African History then I suggest you start with my series of books as they are probably the best introduction to the ancient and medieval history of Black people. This history is as important as the history of the peoples of Asia, Europe, or the Americas. Moreover, the achievements of the early people of Africa are as amazing and inspiring as the achievements of any other people. This history is much older than the Trans-Atlantic Slave Trade and looks at the ancient civilizations of Africa particularly those of the Nile Valley such as Nubia and Ancient Egypt. All books are fully illustrated and they each make recommendations to other books for more in depth study.
