Sinopsis: "Reality Correction Through African-Centered History, Culture, Philosophy, Science and Spirituality. Since the creation of the European slave trade, European history and religion has been used to rationalize European oppression and subjugation of African people in Africa and the African Diaspora. Through careful analysis and examination the book will destroy the European mythology about Africa and present a true history of African civilization from its great ancient antiquity to its eventual destruction. Historical, anthropological, and archeological evidence is reviewed showing that the ancient Egyptian civilization was created, nurtured and evolved by Blacks. During the book's historical discourse is an examination of the works of great scholars and historians of African descent such as Cheikh Anta Diop, Chancellor Williams, John Henrik Clarke, W. E. B. Du Bois, Walter Rodney, Amos Wilson and others. The book exposes the psychology of white supremacy and presents the case that its maintenance has been used by the white elite to continue its imperialism and keep a majority of the people of African descent around the world in poverty and oppression. The book does a thorough examination of orthodox religion and theology and its relationship with the rise and excesses of Western capitalism, creating a present-day need to redefine and transform the Black Church in a way that serves the self-interest of African Americans. During the book's discourse of history from an African-centered perspective, episodes such as the Haitian Revolution, Reconstruction, and Pan-Africanism are discussed. Also, there are detailed discussions on African sprituality, science and ancestor communion. At the beginning of the book, the author chronicles a West African Yoruba family with their young son as the main character. Through the eyes of the boy and his family the reader is exposed to the rich, varied, colorful aspects of this Yoruba society along with its advanced, thriving politics, science, economics, and spirituality. The reader experiences the boy's capture into the European slave trade along with the horror that follows. We watch as the boy grows into a man and struggles to maintain his African tradition, spirituality, dignity, and sanity while being a slave in America. Next, the author transitions into a real-life chronicle of his own African American roots presenting the interesting lives of his African American ancestors. Lastly, the author describes his travels in the West African Sahel, making observations and relating them to various topics discussed. Examples of topics are the importance of the traditional local African economy with the traditional African market as a working model, the devastating effects of the imposed U.S. and European economic globalization, trade policies and privatization, the various, thriving African spirituality practices with their commonalities, cosmologies (nature, origin, and structure of the universe) and cosmogonies (creation of the world and universe), and associated metaphorical folklore, stories and symbolism that convey higher teachings."
