If you are one who is interested in cultural issues, historic issues, or have a deep sense of intuition this book is for you!

Windor used the bible coupled with historical research to place African people in various biblical cities and events. He breaks down the book of Genesis as representation of various peoples around the world. Then Windsor begins to tell the history of various Kingdoms through out the continent of Africa. How the African ...more

This book reads like a history textbook. It is definitely not a "story book" with themes, and plots, and heroes and villains. It is a documentation of historical accounts. So if you are not accustomed to that type of reading, you will probably find it monotonous. Although this is not the history that you are taught in school. It is well researched, and contains in-depth information from various historical sources and scholars. It focuses on the Ancient Black Races and Black Hebrews. It discusses ...more

“Major mutations or changes took place among the descendants of Japheth. This is obvious because of their white skin. In other words, they were black at one time but their skin changed to white. This phenomenon can be understood in view of the total world population. Over two-thirds of the population of the world consists of colored people. That is a ratio of 2-1. Two out of Noah's three sons remained black. We know this to be true because many of the people throughout Africa, Asia, Latin America, and the islands in the Pacific Ocean are yellow, brown or, black.” 1 likes
