Blacks in Science


Providing an overview of the lost sciences of Africa and of contributions that blacks have made to modern American science, Blacks in Science presents a range of new information from Africanists. The book also includes bibliographical guides that are crucial to further research and teaching.

The lineaments of a lost science are now emerging and we can glimpse some of the once buried reefs of this remarkable civilization. A lot more remains to be revealed. But enough has been found in the past few years to make it quite clear that the finest heart of the African world receded into the shadow while its broken bones were put on spectacular display. The image of the African, therefore, has been built up so far upon his lowest common denominator. In the new vision of the ancestor, we need to turn our eyes away from the periphery of the primitive to the more dynamic source of genius in the heartland of the African world.

Black Man of The Nile

Black Man of the Nile and His Family, first published in 1972, is Dr. Ben’s best known work. It captures much of the substance of his early research on ancient Africa. In a masterful and unique manner, Dr. Ben uses Black Man of the Nile to challenge and expose “Europeanized” African History. He points up the distortion after distortion made in the long record of African contributions to world civilization. Once exposed he attcks these distortions with a vengence, providing a spellbinding corrective lesson in our story.

Blacked Out Through Whitewash

This is a great book by Dr Suzar. She does a wonderful job on exposing many of the lies to you in his-story class. I think very black person needs to have this book in their library. After reading this book it changed how I saw America and the world at large.

Afrikan Woman the Original Guardian Angel

This is an amazing book by the late Ishakamusa Barashango. A collection of writings on the Black Woman’s creation of and ongoing contribution to world civilization. This work sets forth documented proof that the original Afrikan Woman is the mother of all living. She was also the first to develop agricultural science, to create an alphabet and mathematics, to devise scripts for writing and to establish educational and social systems. In essence, she was the spiritual impetus for all scientific investigation in the ancient world. The black Woman was also the first builder of houses, constructor of cities, establisher of laws and governance and the creator of the market place. In fact, all the elements of civilization that humans hold dear initially emanated from her, that is why she was revered as an angel in antiquity.

United Independent Compensatory Code Book

Neely Fuller Jr. , the writer/author of this book says: “I have been, like millions of others, a long-time Victim Of and Servant To, Racism (White Supremacy) in all areas of activity.
My experience, observations, and/or studies, have led me to believe the following:

Racism, has done more to promote non-justice, than any other socio-material system known to have been produced, or supported, by the people of the known universe.
..
No major problem, that exists between the people of the known universe, can be eliminated until Racism is eliminated.
..
The fear, frustration, malice, and confusion, that is caused by Racism, retards or prevents all constructive activity between the people of the known universe.
..
The only form of functional Racism that exists among the people of the known universe is “White Supremacy.”
..
The people who have the ability to eliminate Racism do not have the will to do so, and, the people who have the will to do so, do not have the ability.
..
Regardless of all that has been said or done, the quality of the relationship(s) between white people and black people is, and has been, a total disaster.
..
Justice is better than Racism.
..
“As long as Racism exists, anything said, or done by people, that is not intended to help eliminate Racism, and to help produce justice, is a waste of time/energy.”

The Destruction of Black Civilization

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 new approach to the research, teaching, and study of African history by shifting the main focus from the history of Arabs and Europeans in Africa to the Africans themselves, offering instead “a history of blacks that is a history of blacks. Because only from history can we learn what our strengths were and, especially, in what particular aspect we are weak and vulnerable. Our history can then become at once the foundation and guiding light for united efforts in serious[ly] planning what we should be about now.” It was part of the evolution of the black revolution that took place in the 1970s, as the focus shifted from politics to matters of the mind.
