We cannot wait for other people to tell our story. We must search out the truth and continue to ask questions. I thank God for the scarifices made to get the truth told. We must remember that black history did not start with slavery.Black people have made more contributions outside of music.

I have never EVER been more proud to be black. I am one of the children of men and women battered and raped and stolen of their dignity here in America. I have been searching for an affirmation of my people, and in a Western world it's hard to find one. Even AIDA was built upon a lie, (a white egyptian??) I am only 16 but I can see the truth and it has made my life a lot better. Thank you Dr. Chiek. You are a true inspiration to all those who are black, struggling, and looking for a hero and a history.

The African Orgian Of Civilization( Myth Or Reality), is a much needed work on the history of African people. Mr. Diop, through his research and hard work proved to me just how much the so called 'Western World'owe to the anceint black people of Kemit. He takes on the outright falsification of history by many European scholars and set them on the right track.I have never read such a good work on the history of Africa and the means others used for so long to falsify it.This great work should be required reading in every college and university's African studies class across the world. The truth of Mr. Diop's work has freed my mind and I am sure it will do the same for many others.

Every African under the sun should read this book to be saved from these chains we are in right now. Diop almost rewrote the history of Black Africa in this one work.

The readings of the text forms a thorough juxtaposition regarding ancient kemet(Egypt) as an extraordinary civilivation advanced by a race other than(Blacks); and provides a thorough review of the origins of humanity arising out of the heart of the 'dark continent.' It is absolutely an antecedent reading in contrast to past documentation regarding Egypt that today both stifle and humble post-colonialist scholars and scientist(black and white)alike. A reading that should be placed in our higher learning institutions 'globally!' C.A. Diop-thus, captivates his audience with a well-rounded scientific approach, infused with a good grounding of common sense; which enable one to view the facts presented and establish in their own accord the notion of an original Black Egypt!
