84 thoughts on “Knowledge is Power (My Library part 2)

    • Thanks HLJ. I got a few requests on my book list. I kept putting it off and finally decided to give a little glimpse. What other books would you recommend? As far as books about growing in knowledge?

      • Actually I’m reading a lot of esoteric stuff these days. The Secret School is one I’m almost finished with. The Ring Makers of Saturn was excellent; Somebody Else is on the Moon was a good one. So yeah, a lot of off world stuff because I truly believe we come from elsewhere. Also, I’m looking for something on the Dogon Tribe of Mali.

      • I have gotten some good information from some white authors. Some books regarding politics and economics. It really depends on the subject matter. I realize that not all books are written with us in mind. But I’m usually a bit skeptical of white authors when it comes to African heritage,cosmology or African history. We have to keep that in mind when they are controlling the narrative.

      • I agree Kushite, You can’t trust narrative about black culture and such when it’s coming from white authors. That is so true!

      • No problem Kushite, This post inspires me and makes me want to read more. There are three books I am looking forward to getting which are: 1. The Africans Who Wrote The Bible, 2. The Black Biblical Heritage and 3. The Black Man, The Father of Civilization and one other book that I am interested in reading also is Culture Bandits.

    • Have you read about Mami Wata? Her story is a bit esoteric. The book talks about restoring matriarchy so some men might not like it.
      Also, people believe we come from the Sirius star system. And in my opinion there are parallels between Mami Wata and the “Nomos” of the Dogon tribe.
      However, I would also encourage you to think about the construction of the Universe….if you believe in visions and your african spirit is true it will come to you.
      — The Sibyls: the First Prophetess’ of Mami (Wata):The Theft of African Prophecy by the Catholic Church

      • Yes I have heard of Mami Wata. I have done some research on the Sirius star system over the years. Thanks for the quote as well. It gives us all something to think about.

      • I was just indenting to highlight the book.
        However, I was speaking of my experience. Once I became more in tune with my spirituality I began having visions of the Universe, so I am encouraging him to seek that if he hasn’t done so already.

    • That is a great list Shanequa! You have quite the library! I’m really impressed. You have a few books I don’t have. I can tell why you’re such a smart woman now. You have gained quite a bit of knowledge over the years. Thanks for sharing that great list of books.

      • @ Kushite Prince
        Thank you, I just place an order for a book name “Black Rage” by William H. Grier and Price M. Cobbs. Bell Hooks & Dr. Joy DeGruy mention this book in one of there own books so I had to purchase the book. I’m finding a hard time trying to get the book “Culture Bandits” by Del Jones even the black bookstores I go too are having a hard time getting the book. I have notice a couple of years ago a lot of these black sociology & psychology books are becoming hard to get now.

      • Culture Bandits is really hard to find. I have the book in pdf form and had it printed and made into a book.. Many sites like Amazon overprice black conscious books because they don’t want us having that information. Books that have solutions to our problems they purposely overprice. I have had many others tell me they have noticed this too. I will try to find the link to the Bandits pdf. If I find it will post the link for you.

      • Here’s the link to the pdf. You have to create an account on the Scribd site. Once you create an account you can download any book on the site.

      • @ Kushite Prince
        Thank you for the book link. You sure are so right. What’s happening is they are monitoring what we read. Back in 2010 was the first time I seen the book Cutlure Vulture at a bookstore. My mind wasn’t on that book at the time, because I was purchasing another black conscious book. Now that I want to read the book I can’t find it or they put a costly price to the book. It’s the same with the library they had the book “They Came Before Columbus” now they don’t have it anymore. They are slowly seeing our people wake up so they are making those conscious book disappear.

        @ Kushite Prince
        Look at the link below on how this black mother is emasculating her son. This woman doing her child hair like a little girl.

      • That video is very disturbing. It’s a shame to see a mother treat her son like that. It’s apparent she wanted a daughter and didn’t get one. Pray for that child.smh

  2. Greetings KP, I did get The Pale Fox but have not started reading it yet because I’m taking a summer course that requires tons of reading. But I have not forgotten to keep you posted if you don’t beat me to it (Lol). At least I have it though.

    • Thanks a lot!lol It’s taken over fifteen years to get a book collection this big. I have learned quite a lot from these books. And the quest for knowledge never ends. I still have more books I want to get.

  3. This is great! Many of the reading material listed here, I have had for YEARS and still acquiring more. I listed a number of books on another website (Trojan Pam’s) that I have in my “home” library and it is still growing. A few more interesting ones:

    Countering the conspiracy to destroy Black boys – Dr. Jawanza Kunjufu

    Why he hates you – Janks Morton

    Our Kind of People: Inside America’s Black Middle Class – Lawrence Otis Graham

    Keeping Black Boys out of Special Education – Dr. Jawanza Kunjufu

    The Un-Civil War: Blacks vs. Niggers: Confronting the subculture within the African-American Community – Taleeb Starkes

    And, one of my personal favorites:
    Speaking the truth with eloquent thunder – Barbara Jordan

    If I only ruled the world…lol! by Phazex_Female

    All, be well and happy reading!


    • Is it Epi,Phazex or Epiphaney33?? You have quite a few screen Those are some good books you mentioned. Thanks for the Jawanza Kunjufu mention as well. More people should check out his books. Our Kind of People was an interesting book. It showed behind the scenes of how many of the rich black people think. I have never heard of The Un-Civil War. I will have to check that out. The title sounds very intriguing.

      • Epi, Phazex, Phazex_Female or Epiphaney33–all are names I have held or penned under for some years. Whatever you are comftable with, go right ahead. Oh, and Dr. Kunjufu also wrote a book about keeping black boys OUT of special education, a real eye-opener, especially for single, black mothers to become familiar with.

        Be well.

  4. You should talk about black on black violance but especially on white on white crime it will be more interestingly,because how whites lie about crime in US and everywhere!
    I don’t believe that the crime rate is high in the Black Communities, when in US blacks are only 12.61% of the population against 72.41% of whites? How it can be?
    Whites lie and cover their abominable crimes,because they don’t want show the entire world, that they are the most dangerous people living!
    I am tired about their hypocrisy and their self-righteous sense of ” I am good white person!”,saviors of justice!

    • I feel that same way Nubian. I get tired of the hypocrisy too. They always like to portray themselves as the opposite of us. If they are law abiding citizens….then they portray us as criminals. If they see themselves as hard working people…they portray us as lazy. They do this all the time. Even though historically they are the biggest liars and criminals on the planet.

      • Kushite my question was everyone should know about their crimes rate, because every SHITS sorry my language they blame us! I just want the world know their true color! Becuase these sub-human people sleep with animal,children,people the same sex and so on,
        the most abominable thing, they take pleasure killing innocent people!! Everyone out there are procreating with them as if it was something normal!
        I am tired because I don’t want to involve myself in certain situations where there are their issues, but sometimes only choice to do is lie and lie!
        This I always do, lying is the only thing that saves me!
        Give false smiles to them is only solution,because in the and of the days they are not our friends!
        White people have created the term race to clear any evidence or trace that led to us, because all people living today came and were born from black people!
        Why they have gone around the world to change the DNA of the people? They want to show the world that the world is is the same like them!
        These people suffer from an insane egocentrism and narcissism!

    • Why do you believe in their population statistics then? They are the masters of deception, along with their black and colored cronies. There may not even be that many whites. They are also basing this upon self identification, so can you trust everyone who identifies as white. What about black? Ask yourself what makes someone black vs white.

      • @Atumnova
        I understand that many Hispanics check “white” on the census. They know there is a certain privilege that comes with being white. So I would assume that not all whites on the census would be considered white if you could see them. I consider anyone with African textured hair, light brown,dark brown and chocolate brown complexion to be black. As well as a person who has African physical characteristics to be a black person. Being black is biological and you get your genetics from your ancestors. I don’t believe that race is a social construct. The white-controlled media loves to spread that lie. So what about you? What do you consider black or white? It’s pretty obvious to me.

      • I realized that I was black, when I heard for the first time in my life someone called me “N-word!”,that time I was child and than I understood how things go in this world!

    • Qnubian just spoke the truth regarding how whites lie about the crimes in the United States claiming that us blacks are the ones committing the most crimes while it is a lesser population of us and a bigger population of whites. Like qnubian said, How is that true? That is the thing about whites that makes them a big nuisance is that all of them love to lie. And it is super sickening to hear them claim that their race is being discriminated against which is a big lie.

  5. I did a list like this a few years ago but haven’t lately. However, I’ve read many books in my life; but honestly, I’ve still got a lot to read. Next on my list: The Art of War by Sun Tzu. I’m going to print this page to have as a reference.

    • Whites have long stood behind a façade of being “peaceful” people. They will throw a rock, so to speak, and then hold out their hands like a child as if to say, “See? My hands are clean.” One must always be vigilant in the midst of these sub-humans. And nice mention regarding The Art of War. For it IS true: never go into battle with an enemy without first learning everything that you can about him/her.

      And many tactics in this book, whites have long used against black people. Good book.

      • There are so many more…but it’s a no-brainer that we must “perfect” the tactics whites have used on us; and flip the script, turning them around and having them run for their lives. I’m not playing. My mind is not designed for pity. I feel nothing for any enemy or one who I perceive as a threat. Intrinsically and naturally, I will become like the Terminator–zeroing on my target, reading them; aiming my weapon, and destroying them with no regard for their well being whatsoever. Black people still “care” too much about our enemy. I believe this has been something passed down from slavery. This is why white people keep playing us. The lesson must be: our enemy uses military science and so must we in order to destroy him. Real talk.

      • There you go!! “They will throw a rock and then hold out their hands and say see! My hands are clean!”

        Thanks for this Epiphaney33, that is what is going on when you see someone today who had “nothing to do with the past”.

    • Yes I’d love to see your list Angel. I’m sure you’ve built quite a collection over the years. I have The Art of War. A friend gave it to me years ago. A very fascinating book!

  6. Truthangel07?

    I see that we may have the same mind-set. “See the target and destroy him. Pity-parties have NEVER been my persona.” Thank you.

  7. This post right here is FIRE! You just made me have to up my book game tremendously! Much love god! I think that I am going to have to follow suite of TruthAngel and print this out! One thing we must always do is read and study books written by Europeans as well. You better believe they are studying ours. I’m pretty sure that there is a European that reads every last one of your post.

    • Thanks a lot 25 Black. It’s taken me years to build up this collection. I could’ve listed more but I didn’t want the post to be too But I’m glad I could inspire others to want to read more. Too many people are addicted to the mental pollution of television. Our people definitely need to read more. And I do agree we should check out books by Europeans as well. It’s important to know how all races and cultures think and operate. This is also a good way to understand your enemy and how to counter their oppression against you.

    • Thanks Onitaset. Believe me brother,it take a few years to build a collection like this. But I think I’ve learned a lot over the years. Many of these books helped me understand myself and the world around me. Knowledge truly is power. I’m sure you have some good books of knowledge yourself.

  8. I’m envy you, I want your library, lol! I’ve just now gotten a chance to comment on this post, but this post and other book recommendation posts I’ve been reading has made me up my book buying game again. However, I have been buying e-books (I prefer paperbacks) cause e-books are cheaper, no shipping and handling, and quick delivery. Books are sooo costly, especially the good ones. I have an account on scribd that I may need to activate again, so that I can grab hold of some free books, like the one culture vulture above. I downloaded Black Women in Antiquity and Melanin: The Chemical Key to Black Greatness (I have yet to read) from that site….and printed out both books. I also may try some cheap sites such as, I’ll buy a used book as long as its in great condition.

    I’ve also started purchasing books again not just to expand my knowledge, but to use as references for an upcoming book of my own. Yes, your girls wants to fulfill my lifelong dream of writing a book. The book will be centered around my blogs original black woman, fighting misogynoir in which I will discuss the Black Woman’s glorious herstory, pain and struggle with intersecting oppressions (racism, intra-racism, colorism, misogynoir etc) and accomplsihments, achievements, contributions to humanity. I’m gonna try to finish in 6 months to a year and I will do several volumes cause I won’t try to fit thousands of years of herstory in one book, lol. I will try to throw togehter a free sample/preview (marketing strategy) for my readers and to attract more reader. But look out for it to add to your library, ill keep you updated.

    • Thanks I’m glad you like my collection. It’s taken years to get all these books. But I love learning new things. I think it’s important we expand our horizons and not ne afraid to challenge ourselves. I read more than I watch television. I think there are too many lies on television and is very damaging to the black mind. They are programming us to hate ourselves and be ashamed of our beautiful blackness and African heritage. Thanks for that link. I’ve never heard of it before. I’m glad you’re going to get more books. You’re already a very smart woman but like I said the quest for knowledge never ends. Writing a book?? Nice! Now that’s a book I would love to read. People have told me I should write a book. I just haven’t found the time. I also need a really good topic. There are so many to choose from. But I’m really proud of you OBW. I know you are a real inspiration to other women and men as well. And I know I will be getting the first copy when that book comes out. 🙂

      • I’m sure you will, I can always count on you. I can’t wait to share my work with you all. I just rejoined last night (free trial) to get me some free books I downloaded culture bandits 1, you know there is #2 right? I also joined and ordered two books that’s half the price on amazon. I love amazon, but I need to shop thriftbooks more, they’re books (I compared prices) are a little cheaper than on amazon. I suggest you all check it out too.

      • I definitely will check out that link. Yes I downloaded Culture Bandits 1 & 2. Very good books! I featured Bandits a few years ago in my Books You Need to Read categories. I will be waiting for your

      • I downloaded the pdf on a disk. Then I went to Staples and got them to print it out. OfficeMax will di it also. No I wouldn’t use my own printer for all those That uses too much ink for books with that many pages.

      • Unfortunately, I live in a small city and there are some stores and businesses that we don’t have. I have went to my local library and printed out copies before, but I’m kinda lazy sometimes, lol and don’t always want to go to the library (and possibly wait for the next available computer). I Fortunately, I did some research and found a site (through a blog about reading) called and they print out books and other documents for readers (sign up for free account) and mail them to you for (what the blog administrator says) at a fair price. I’m going to check them out.

      • Mimeo?? Never heard of it. You really do some good I will check it out. Sometimes the prices at Staples and OfficeMax and be over $25 to get a book printed. If Mimeo is cheaper I will definitely be down with that.

      • Yeah, I’ve already set up my free account. Now I will be uploading a couple of free pdf books I downloaded to see how much they will cost. They give you several choices as to how you want the book(s) put together and they offer overnight delivery. Sounds good! However, you can’t upload kindle ebooks. We shall see if they a a great alternative.

      • Yeah it is. That’s what I like. is another site that also offer printing free pdfs. I just got finished putting culture bandits 1&2 into a book (choosing what type of binding, black or white print etc) and saving in my library and cart. I’ll see how much it cost to get delivered by in the morning if I order by 10 tonight or I’ll have to wait. Quick shipping is always high.

  11. Also all the volumes of “The Secret Relationship between Blacks and jews ” ( lower case-mine) by the Nation of Islam . Whether one subscribes to Islam ,matters not. I am obsessed with the first two volumes. Dr Tony Martin was terrorized by the jewish academia , jewish terrorist groups and lobbies and their media in a very long campaign against him until his death ,for teaching this to his students .

    Also check out Professor Leonard Jeffries – a similar fate befell him.

    From these extremely well-researched history books ,I have learned who is responsible for the genocide, slavery, and apartheid in my country without it have not being mentioned in the Secret Relationship.

  12. Thanks so much for the links, I can finally find some books to add to my library that has useful and powerful information it’s really hard to find those books, and they are like you said overpriced on amazon, I’m glad you gave me those links I can get the books I wanted at a more cheaper price than amazon.
