    One thought on “Destruction of Black Civilization: Great Issues of a Race From 4500 B.C. To 2000 A.D.”

    1. This is a VERY informative book that takes you through the history of the various dynasties and transitions of power between the races It sheds light on the luxurious lifestyle that black people people of color and their mixed progeny enjoyed for so many years before their demise It, also, describes how the life of the Egyptian lived many years ago and how the lightening and darkening of the races came about It is so very interesting that anyone can and will enjoy learning from it.

    2. This is a brilliant book I love reading Chancellor Williams The Destruction of Black Civilization provides the blue print and the analysis from which the African Diaspora may reach and find the strength for positive self development The book employs the use of focussing on great civilizations as an impetus for returning to pride in the African culture I am using this book in my Africa American History class, because African American students must realize the brilliant and intellectual structures [...]

    3. Books like this are not historical Cool if you want to feel good And considering the terrible condition of African people, some just want answers outside of facts then this book will fill your socks But you have to ask yourself seriously now, is that all you want This is the age of plurality of knowledge It rejects egocentric universalism and exclusivism in the study of history.In our age we need to demonstrates that the methodology and tools that we employ are above those the colonialist used t [...]

    4. Book contains many historical inaccuracies and seems to be written with emotion than factual evidence The book has some interesting points nevertheless.

    5. Outdated, of course but very interesting historically, the perspective a strong voice in the then developing field of black studies that came out of the cultural revolution of the 60s 70s I m not familiar enough with the particularities of ancient African history to have any comment on factual accuracy Lump summing all the different African peoples under the label of black vs eurasian whites was annoying A particularly interesting point was made about the hemming in of Africans off of the coasta [...]

    6. Though a historian by trade, this work is actually accurately described as a treatise on Africana Social Theory AST It is an important work for anyone studying AST or Afrocentric thought As a work of AST it lays out a very important analysis of what the author calls African constitutional democracy and the role adherence to, and movement away from this central politico economic discourse has played in strengthening and weakening African civilization throughout its history As a work of Afrocentr [...]

    7. 3.5 stars, I d say This was clearly an important work that paved the way for many other historians to discuss issues World and specifically African historians owe a great debt to Chancellor Williams for challenging the dominate position of history and doing a lot of groundbreaking work to begin the hard process of setting some of the record straight Of course, history is always a work in progress, but in Africa in particular, a lot of progress has been stymied by chance and by willful destructio [...]

    8. i am currently reading this book I have to say it is just amazing what europeans did to Africa This book fills in a lot of historical holes for me I can say that i have been mis educated in the American education system People condemned books like this because they have something to hide, otherwise they wouldn t spend so much time trying to discredit truth I know that in all books there is bias but the wouldn t stop me from reading them Somewhere between bias vs bias is the truth This book makes [...]

    9. Was hoping here to find a counter balanced, Afrocentric antidote to Euro focused studies on the continent, and while Williams certainly offers that point of view, his attempts to condense 6,500 years worth of events into a simplistic narrative involving nefarious forces continually seeking to destroy black excellence make for a clumsy and amateurish take on complex history The huge span of time covered should have been a tip off, and while I m inclined to get on board with the idea that racial a [...]

    10. This is a very good reference book If you are studying black history this is a very good book to start off with.

    11. 1 2 way through I like this I find myself doubting a lot, and hating myself and my white education for doubting It makes me angry that we just destroyed something so wonderful Why do we always destroy what we envy, or do not understand When I was a child, I used to say to my mom, The boys at school call me a sissy and are mean to me She always said, Ignore them, they re jealous I used to think, and still do to some degree, What an idiot The school quarterback jealous of me Now, however, I have h [...]

    12. It took me a while to get through this wonderfully written work I particularly like the story of Ann Nzinga and her stuggle against the Portuguese very inspiring historical figure I dont wanna say too much without spoiling the reading The strategies used to conquer parts of the African nation by the europeans and the Arab invaders were interesting and diabolical to be able to turn a people against themselves without ever having to step on the battlefield.The book ends with a plan that includes e [...]

    13. A very good read If you re interested in life before the enslavement of Africans, this is for youyou ll have to get past the author s angry voice though There is presence of bias, however it s very informative.

    14. Another treasure trove of information about the history of West Africa this time Informative, enlightening mind blowing even if this info is new to you and even if it s not Might want to read it over and over so that you can keep the information in your head.

    15. this book is a powerful over view of what has happened some parts are simplistic but the general idea is stunning the blueprint at the end gives you resolve and really lets you see the political nature of everything.

    16. This is an important book Not an easy read at all but answers the question as to why those that are of African descent are such in a fragmented state.

    17. The Holte award for a book on Africa, begun in 1979, is given every two years for a work of excellence in literature and the humanities relating to the cultural heritage of Africa and the African diaspora Chancellor Williams, the historian, received the first prize for his analysis of Africa, The Destruction of Black Civilization Great Issues of a Race From 4500 B.C to A.D 2000 New York Times, Books, March 8, 1981 For generations, Memphis was almost entirely an all African city, with white Asian [...]

    18. One of those great books of the African American tradition that is little know within and without the African American tradition A must read for may serious student of West African History.
