I originally bought this book in 1996 and, after making the great mistake of lending it out, didn't retrieve it until 2003. It's become my Bible. I always heard that black people were the first builders, scientists, physicians and schollars,(the list of firsts is endless). However I generally found myself floundering when attempting to expalin to friends, why, if we were the original people, we eventually became known as the worlds greatest borrowers, hangers on and 'third world' citizens. Now thanks to Dr. Williams I am able to understand it for myself and articulate to a much higher degree the tragedy that is the African Exodus. History has always been an interest and hobby of mine and I now intend to make it a career by studying for a degree in African History.

I have possessed this book for about twenty years, and it continues to hold each reader in awe. This is an incredibly enlighting book. It is not for a person that is looking for evidence to be angry at white people nor insearch of scapegoats. Dr. Chancellor Williams has created a very comprehensive and well documented account of the civilizations of Black People from antiquity. It is much easier to read than Cheikh Anta Diop's and Basil Davidson's books. Dr Williams demonstrated the depth of his intellect by objectively comparing economic-political systems. This is a must read book for history enthusiasts.

I have never read a book that held such truth of the African Civilization. This book should be a required read in every African American studies course. I was elated to finally know the great accomplishments of my people, but also saddened at the loss of greatness and stolen history. I love to read books of black history, but I have never found one like this. I have never read a book that documents the great African Egypt with such truth and clarity. I recommend this book to all people who want to truly know the history of black people.

When I first read the book Destruction of a Black Civilization I was working in a book store. I've heard of the title but didn't feel compelled to buy it and then a friend told me about it and then I read it. It didn't move me at first, until I went to Africa. There I read to book to its entirty and said to myself this is some good stuff (this is a clean version of what I wanted to say). This book is really moving and to go to Africa and see first hand what Mr. Chancellor is saying is unbelievable. I would say this book should be read by every scholar who truly cares about African people and African Culture.

Interested in discovering your African origins and the origins of civilization? Well this is THE book to get you off to the proper search. Very interesting and important for all Africans (which is what i call all blacks in America). This is truly a must read. Learn what others have prayed that we will never discover. It is difficult to type the emotions felt as a result of reading this book. The best I can do is to implore more Africans to read it.

the only truth in this book one should keep in mind is the following. The black man has and continue to do it to himself. nothing about black lives nothing about the neck stepping of a culture. nothing but hard logic of what a civilization does to survive and flourish.
