This volume represents a new departure in the examination of Egypt's place in the African context. It brings together the latest research of the 1980s on Nile Valley civilizations, what they achieved, and their impact on Africa and the world. The authors take an "Afrocentric" in contrast to a "Eurocentric" perspective in their studies of the birthplace of civilization. This volume includes sections on the race and origin of the ancient Egyptians, black dynasties and rulers, Egyptian science and philosophy, and great Egyptologists. It sheds new light on neglected aspects of history. Ivan Van Sertima is professor of African studies, Rutgers University, and editor of the Journal of African Civilizations. He is the author of They Came Before Columbus: The African Presence in Ancient America, winner of the Clarence L. Holte International Prize.

Professor Gerald G. Jackson incorporates the perceptions, ideals, hesitancies and proclamations of hte Hip-Hop and post Hip-Hop generations into the Africana Studies field. He pulls evidence from a rich tapestry of history, classroom learning exercises, student reports, scholar and professional led lectures, discussions and educational tours to create a groundbreaking multicultural and pluralistic model for the application of Africentric helping to the educational sphere. While the mode varies, the greater number of compositions compiled here are biographies of ordinary and extraordinary African Americans. Culturally affriming, introspective and expansive, We're Not Going to Take it Anymore is a rarely seen educational innovation.

The result of years of work by scholars from all over the world, The UNESCO General History of Africa reflects how the different peoples of Africa view their civilizations and shows the historical relationships between the various parts of the continent. Historical connections with other continents demonstrate Africa's contribution to the development of human civilization. Each volume is lavishly illustrated and contains a comprehensive bibliography. This final volume of the acclaimed series of African history by African scholars takes on the complex political, economic, and cultural challenges the continent has faced--and still faces--in shaking off the legacy of colonialism. The book begins with Mussolini's invasion of Ethiopia in 1935 and continues on through the struggle for independence in the years following World War II. The glittering but uncertain dawn of independence that began in the 1960s has resulted in a quest for development that continues today.
