Book Overview

The Destruction of Black Civilization took Chancellor Williams sixteen years of research and field study to compile. The book, which was to serve as a reinterpretation of the history of the African race, was intended to be a general rebellion against the subtle message from even the most 'liberal' white authors (and their Negro disciples): 'You belong to a race of nobodies. You have no worthwhile history to point to with pride.' The book was written at a time when many black students, educators, and scholars were starting to piece together the connection between the way their history was taught and the way they were perceived by others and by themselves. They began to question assumptions made about their history and took it upon themselves to create a new body of historical research. The book is premised on the question: If the Blacks were among the very first builders of civilization and their land the birthplace of civilization, what has happened to them that has left them since then, at the bottom of world society, precisely what happened? The Caucasian answer is simple and well-known: The Blacks have always been at the bottom. Williams instead contends that many elements--nature, imperialism, and stolen legacies-- have aided in the destruction of the black civilization. The Destruction of Black Civilization is revelatory and revolutionary because it offers a Read More chevron_right

   This book isn't even a mere shadow of what it should have been.
Gonna keep it short, Tunick said. A must read for any African American. There are no 1-star reviews of this book. Originally, this book was to be a multi-volume collection of African history before, during, and after slavery. The reason it isn't is because the author's Chancellor Williams eye went bad so he released what he had, he said. He is now blind but there are concrete names, dates, and even an afterlife. Simply type in the search bar: "I'm feeling doubtful." I gave this book to my mother after reading it a month ago so she can't give you an exact part to search if you want instant gratification, but I'll update my review when I get the book back. There are some picks in Egypt, too. The new argument is that they were headdresses. Egyptians were us or had a very strong liking for us. It's just that they're not saying anything. If you want to find out more about Dr. Goin's work, you can visit the Web site of the Federal Trade Commission. You won't find anything to disprove that claim.

I recommend this book to anyone who has ever read it. Chancellor Williams, not only gave us the Who, What, Why, Where and how we got where we are today, he also gave us a plan of action.

I have found that this book has given me a whole different perspective on history, race and human relations, Raymond said. Note the subheading of this terrible parable in the "Harry Potter" series, which is "a must-read, period." Even though I'm not as smart as Thibault, I feel so much smarter and very equipped for profound dialogue.
   Chancellor Williams Proves The Power of One.
Chancellor Williams has put in his hands a single work that dispels the myth that THEY didn't write anything. It's mandatory reading for everyone sworn into office on all levels. This book is a primer to the study of human and Theological history.
   Ancient History Revisited
The book was interesting in that it uncovered facts about ancient history that had not been known to me, Mr. Dhaliwal said. It was enlightening to see the biases that historians have incorporated into written history. If you are a Black man, I would recommend this book for everyone to gain more of an understanding of the Black positions in the world and what can be done for and by them to gain an equal footing with the rest of the world.
   Worth every cent but the hardcover would be a better option.
It's a piece of the African Bible. Chancellor Williams makes it easy to understand what he is talking about. It's great to have both the physical and digital versions of the book. Digital copies can be taken away, but they will have to pry the physical from my dead body. The cover is a tad too heavy, but I'm not complaining. The book is also being sold in hardback. In "The Fifth," Elizabeth Taylor says, "we shouldn't be afraid to assert ourselves into our own being and story." Please don't let the fictionalized recreations hold us back from having a good idea of who we are.
   Why is it So?
It's great to see a book like this come out. As a man who has traveled extensively from country to country, I can say with confidence that the writer's claims are valid. What a great book, said Blair, "and I find this book very enlightening and eye opening to the realism of the world." After years of promises, rallies, demonstrations, committee work, nothing truly has changed, the picture just shifted to give the appearance of change, he said. The Khosla boys, for example, lament that there is little to no history of the black people or the kingdoms built by us.
   I just can't...
If I had to waste money on this, I would.
   A Must Read By All People of Color
I will not say I'm a great reviewer of books, but what I learned from this book is priceless, McBride said. When you try to cross-check things on the internet there is very little if anything that supports the facts in this great book, Graham said. I highly recommend this book to anyone. People need to see the facts and know how great people of color were and how the destruction began and continues to this day, he said.
   True African History!
Only in the past few years have we seen truly exceptional results. There is no other like it. But the book also reveals the forgotten history of the Motherland.
