This book by Chancellor Williams reads like a horror movie. It starts off from a period where only Africans inhabit the whole of Africa to the modern-day.
Throughout the book, we are taken on a journey on how African civilization has been attacked by invaders.
One constant remains throughout the book: The moment Europeans or Asians were allowed into African communities, their decline was inevitable.
We see evidence throughout the course of the book as the author looks at how various kingdoms are destroyed over the course of history.
If the book stopped at that point, it would have been a remarkable read.
However, the Chancellor goes the extra mile by presenting a plan for the African community to rebuild itself.
The tragedy of African decimation does not have to remain a tragedy if readers of this book decide to work with their fellow Africans to rebuild.
That is the real challenge presented in the book.
