The Willie Lynch Letter and the Making of a Slave is a study of slave making. It discribes the rationale and the results of Anglo Saxon's ideas and methods of insuring the master/slave relationship. The infamous Willie Lynch letter gives both African and Caucasian students and teachers some insight, concerning the brutal and inhumane psychology behind the African slave trade. The materialistic viewpoint of Southern plantation owners that slaver was a business and the victims of chattel slavery were merely pawns in an economic game of debauchery, cross-breeding, inter-racial rape and mental conditioning of a negroid race, they considered sub-human. Equally important is the international nature of the European economic, political and cultural climate that influenced the slave trade. Within the time scale of African History, it was a relatively short period, a mere one and a half centuries from the most intensive phase of the Atlantic slave trade to the advent of European administration and dominance. Long before that the Slave Coast had been chartered by the Portuguese and the people off the area west of Benin, between the volta River and Lagos, European traders traced a cultural history which linked them with the earliest Yoruba settlements to the north and eastern borders of Africa.

A must read if you are Black or interact with Black people at all, especially for the young ones. An unbelievable account that still holds true in many cases. Can be used for good or evil. Simply by implementing the opposite of the letter's intent, UNITY. If you are Black and have even the most remote connection to your brothers/sisters, anything at all in common, capitalize on it, to make the Black community better. Also, encourage others to read it so that they will be informed. It is depressing the little value placed on reading and knowledge in this day and age. This is absolutely vital information that will NOT be taught in most scools (even with a majority of Black students), as well as almost anything that pertains to Black Heritage. If you want to learn, you have to teach yourself, via books, internet, or interviewing people who have knowledge and experience. Public and most private schools do little in the effect of actually teaching. They're practically worthless in a sense.
