1. I forgot this one gem featuring
my man, the late Professor Cheikh Anta Diop of Senegal - physicist, anthropologist, historian - whose seminal works, to me was the beginning of so-called Afro-centrism, include "Civilization or Barbarism?" and "The African Origin of Civilization: Myth or Reality?" Must-haves in our home libraries, IMHO. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rTyMpuTL8Ow

And not to forget Prof. Martin Bernal of Cornell University who spent 20years researching and writing "Black Athena: The Afroasiatic Roots of Classical Civilization." Poor white guy has spent the last 20 years vigorously defending his work - another must-have in our libraries, IMHO.

I just bring these up because, to me, this is the crux of the problem: If we do not know and understand our history and the systematic dissembling of it, we are not going to Ever get far even trying to carve out huge chunks of racism - Start at the beginning and we cannot do it alone, it will take all of us, people of African descent and those of European descent to get Truthcentric.

book discussed by he and his colleagues - the pros and cons. I've counted 7 segments, all appear a little over 8minutes long, but I've listed only the first 3.
