PAN AFRICAN READING LIST

There are a number of books which can be considered seminal works in building our understanding of the Pan African Diaspora Experience.

For those who are interested in learning our history as it is related to the last 600 years and the influence of Europe. I recommend these books as you start on the fascinating journey into our history by first learning what has happened to us.

Marcus Radiker. The Slave Ship, a human History.
Brown University Document on Slavery Located at http://brown.edu/Research/Slavery_Justice/documents/SlaveryAndJustice.pdf
Walter Rodney's How Europe Under Developed Africa.
Chinweizu, The West and the Rest of US.
Jacob Carruthers, Intellectual Warfare.

Having read these you will understand a lot more about the African experience since the European invasion and what that means to you right now. It is the first step, and an integral part of building your understanding of who you are and what challenges face us. When you understand this then you can begin to plan more effectively for your future.

PAN AFRICAN READING LIST

There are a number of books which can be considered seminal works in building our understanding of the Pan African Diaspora Experience.

For those who are interested in learning our history as it is related to the last 600 years and the influence of Europe. I recommend these books as you start on the fascinating journey into our history by first learning what has happened to us.

Parham, T.A. (Ed) (2002) Counseling Persons of African Descent. In a provocative series of essays the authors argue that attempts to effectively treat African American clients cannot be successful if these attempts rely solely on seasoning traditional Eurocentric theories and constructs with the cultural flavor of an African worldview. Contributors look at the ancient Kemetic worldview and the more historical Akan and Yoruba systems of belief in an effort to understand the personality dynamics of African Americans. In recognizing that the literature is scarce with respect to operationalizing an African centered worldview in therapeutic practice, this text concludes with a model in intervention strategies that can be followed when working with African American clients.

Readings explore Black Studies disciplinary orientation (explore the contested terminology – African American Studies, African Studies, Africana Studies, Pan-African Studies, Afro-American Studies, Africology, Black Studies- but agree that discipline is a legitimate, institutionalized and worthwhile inquiry of scholarship and education. Readings also trace the historical development of Black Studies; its history, evolution and debates from the US civil rights era – first black studies programs in 1968 San Francisco State and 1988 PhD at Temple, OR African Studies’ offshoot or separate trajectory (see Dar’ vs Ibadan schools) OR Black Diaspora Studies’ offshoot or separate trajectory (Ruth Hamilton school/Atlanticist school)
Aldridge, Delores P. and Carlene Young. Out of the Revolution: The Development of Africana Studies. Lanham, Md.: Lexington Books, 2000. 583pp. Main Library E184.7 .O88 2000 : This collection of 32 essays is an attempt to gather the work of individuals who have devoted their professional lives to the development of what is referred to here as Africana studies. Contributions are presented in ten parts, with the last being "Prospectus of the Future." Understandably, the editors paint a relatively rosy future for Africana studies; perhaps, considering the difficulty of getting new academic units approved in colleges today, a bit too rosy. Other writers point out that despite what one might expect, historically black colleges and universities, which have too-often followed a Eurocentric curriculum, have not been leaders in establishing most Africana studies programs. It is also informative that the South, with the highest number of black higher-education institutions and greatest population of African Americans, has the smallest number of black studies programs. The late Stanley Crockett Espinoza's essay on Afro-Mexicans, a group ignored by most Mexican scholars and unknown to most North American blacks, is the most original contribution. The several other essays are of varying quality, but all are important reading for anyone interested in black, or Africana, studies.
Alkalimat, Abdul. Introduction to Afro-American Studies: A People’s College Primer.Chicago : Twenty-first Century Books and Publications, 1986. 6th edition, 391pp. Main Library E184.7 .I57 1986 .
Anderson, Talmadge and James Stewart. Introduction to African American Studies: Transdisciplinary Approaches and Implications. Baltimore: Imprint editions, 2007. 430pp. Main Library E184.7 .A52 2007 . There is an ongoing debate as to whether African American Studies is a discipline, or multidisciplinary or interdisciplinary field. Some scholars assert that African American Studies use a well-defined common approach in examining history, politics, and the family in the same way as scholars in the disciplines of economics, sociology, and political science. Other scholars consider African American Studies multidisciplinary, a field somewhat comparable to the field of education in which scholars employ a variety of disciplinary lenses-be they anthropological, psychological, historical, etc., --to study the African world experience. In this model the boundaries between traditional disciplines are accepted, and researches in African American Studies simply conduct discipline based an analysis of particular topics. Finally, another group of scholars insists that African American Studies is interdisciplinary, an enterprise that generates distinctive analyses by combining perspectives from different traditional disciplines and synthesizing them into a unique framework of analysis.
Brown, Cecil. Dude, Where’s My Black Studies Department? : The Disappearance of Black Americans from Our Universities. Berkeley: North Atlantic Books, 2007. 139pp. 139pp. Main Library LC2781 .B76 2007 : Blacks have been vanishing from college campuses in the United States and reappearing in prisons, videos, and movies. Cecil Brown tackles this unwitting "disappearing act" head on, paying special attention to the situation at UC Berkeley and the University of California system generally. Brown contends that educators have ignored the importance of the oral tradition in African American upbringing, an oversight mirrored by the media. When these students take exams, their abilities are not tested. Further, university officials, administrators, professors, and students are ignoring the phenomenon of the disappearing black student – in both their admissions and hiring policies. With black studies departments shifting the focus from African American and black community interests to black immigrant issues, says Brown, the situation is becoming dire. Dude, Where’s My Black Studies Department? offers both a scorching critique and a plan for rethinking and reform of a crucial but largely unacknowledged problem in contemporary society.
Hall, Perry. In the Vineyard: Working in African American Studies. Knoxville: The University of Tennessee Press, 1999. 247pp. Main Library E184.7 .H24 1999 : Hall's insightful analysis of the evolution of black studies programs places them in the context of the broader black Civil Rights Movement and the need for new perspectives in college curricula to replace those that had previously marginalized African Americans. He dismisses skeptics who question the legitimacy of black studies, citing the weight of social, political, and cultural experiences of African Americans, as well as the vitality of academic discourse in the field today. The strongest parts of his book are those that trace the struggle among black studies professionals themselves. Hall examines current intellectual models, including the increasingly popular "Afrocentric" approach, which he finds insightful but limited. Hall offers an alternative "transformationist" model that builds on the ideas of double-consciousness or "dynamic duality" in the African American experience, a combination of Afrocentric and Western forces that shape modern black communities. Hall's work is largely biographical, reflecting his personal experience as an African American studies pioneer with more than 30 years of experience.
Harris, Jr., Robert L.; Darlene Clark Hine; and Nellie McKay. Three Essays: Black Studies in the United States. New York: Ford Foundation, 1990. 29pp. Main Library E184.7 .H29 1990 : Also see Inclusive Scholarship : Developing Black Studies in the United States (pp.85-116) which appears to have an online copy of the report.
Karenga, Maulana. Introduction to Black Studies. Los Angeles: The University of Sankore Press, 1993. 2nd edition, 531pp. Main Library E185 .K27 1993 : Dr. Karenga appears to order the table of contents in the order of the seven basics areas of culture, i.e. Spirituality and Ethics, History, Social organization, Economic organization, Political organization, Creative Production and Ethos. The origin of this cultural structure is developed from the Communitarian African Philosophy, Kawaida, which means, "Tradition and Reason" also created by Dr. Karenga. More on Kawaida Philosophy can be found on page 173 of the I.B.S. The reader of the I.B.S. will also discover that Dr. Karenga uses category's that provides a logic of liberation in suggesting alternatives to the dominant society's views and values, in how they relate to the views and values of African Americans and other Black peoples. After each subject, Dr. Karenga has provided the reader with study questions and an extensive reference list from which further research and study can take place. 1982 edition also available.
Marable, Manning. “Black Studies and the Racial Mountain”. Souls, Vol. 2, no. 3. (Summer 2000), pp.17-36.
Norment, Nathaniel Jr., ed. The African American Studies Reader. Durham, N.C.: Carolina Academic Press, 2007. 2nd edition, 896pp. Main Library E184.7 .A313 2007 : This book is the most comprehensive anthology in the field. The discipline continues to evolve as to the intellectual, political, and social aspects of African American Studies, and how the discipline will advance knowledge about African Americans for the future. This edition contains new authors, updated introductions to each section and the bibliography, expansion of the glossary of biographies, and review questions and critical analyses for each section. Topics include: The Discipline; African American Women's Studies; Historical Perspectives; Philosophical Perspectives; Theoretical Foundations; Political Perspectives; Critical Issues and Perspectives; and Curriculum Development and Program Models.
Rojas, Fabio. From Black Power to Black Studies: How a Radical Social Movement Became an Academic Discipline. The Johns Hopkins University Press, 2007. 279pp. Main Library E184.7 .R65 2007 : The black power movement helped redefine African Americans' identity and establish a new racial consciousness in the 1960s. As an influential political force, this movement in turn spawned the academic discipline known as Black Studies. Today there are more than a hundred Black Studies degree programs in the United States, many of them located in America's elite research institutions. In From Black Power to Black Studies, Fabio Rojas explores how this radical social movement evolved into a recognized academic discipline....Rojas traces the evolution of Black Studies over more than three decades, beginning with its origins in black nationalist politics. His account includes the 1968 Third World Strike at San Francisco State College, the Ford Foundation's attempts to shape the field, and a description of Black Studies programs at various American universities. His statistical analyses of protest data illuminate how violent and nonviolent protests influenced the establishment of Black Studies programs. Integrating personal interviews and newly discovered archival material, Rojas documents how social activism can bring about organizational change....Shedding light on the black power movement, Black Studies programs, and American higher education, this historical analysis reveals how radical politics are assimilated into the university system
Rooks, Noliwe M. White Money/Black Power: The Surprising History of African American Studies and the Crisis in Higher Education. Boston: Beacon Press, 2006. 213pp. Main Library E184.7 .R66 2006 : The history of African American Studies is often told as a heroic tale, with compelling images of black power and passionate African American students who refuse to take “no” for an answer. Noliwe M. Rooks argues for the recognition of another story that proves that many of the programs that survived were actually begun due to heavy funding from the Ford Foundation or, put another way, as a result of white philanthropy....Today, many students in African American Studies courses are white, and an increasing number of black students come from Africa or the Caribbean, not the United States. This shift—which makes the survival of the discipline contingent on non–African American students—means that “blackness can mean everything and, at the same time, nothing at all.”...While the Ford Foundation provided much-needed funding, its strategies, aimed at addressing America’s “race problem,” have left African American Studies struggling to define its identity in light of the changes it faces today. With unflinching honesty, Rooks shows that the only way to create a stable future for African American Studies is through confronting its complex past.

Richard Majors;
22. Visions for the Education of African American Children
By Janice E. Hale
Hale (early childhood education, Wayne State U.) further develops the theses of her earlier book, Black Children, and argues that African American culture
should be considered in designing educational practice for African American
children. She analyzes the historical context of upward mobility, discusses the
cultural milieu that provides the framework for African American values and
behavior, and describes an early childhood demonstration program.

23. SBA the Reawakening of the African Mind
Asa G., III Hilliard;
"SBA: The Reawakening of the African Mind is a key. It is a roadmap. It is a call to destiny…. With SBA: The Reawakening of the African Mind, Dr. Hilliard…helps us to comprehend why education is so critical to African liberation and advancement. Within his opening thoughts, Asa inextricably links the mind (spirit), with culture and education. He notes that to reawaken the African mind, one must ensure that the goal of education and the socialization process must be to understand and live up to African cultural principles, values and virtues.” --Wade W. Nobles, Ph.D. (From the Foreword)

24. Keeping Black Boys Out Of Special Education
Jawanza Kunjufu;
This critical analysis looks at the disproportionate number of African American
males in special education. Arguing that the problem is race and gender driven, questions covered include Why does Europe send more females to special education? Why does America lead the world in giving children Ritalin? Is there a relationship between sugar, Ritalin, and cocaine? and Is there a relationship between special education and prison? More than 100 strategies to help teachers and parents keep black boys in the regular classroom, such as revising teacher expectations, increasing parental involvement, changing teaching styles from a left-brain abstract approach to a right-brain hands-on approach, redoing the curriculum, understanding the impact of mass media, and fostering healthy eating habits.

25. Blacks in Science: Ancient and Modern (Journal of African Civilizations; Vol. 5, No. 1-2) Ivan Van Sertima (Editor)
I recommend anyone reaching and exploring to shatter the myths of
primitive Africans to read this book. Another thing this book explores is
the evidence they found in Kenya of an astronomical observatory. The book
does show the lack of study in the scientific nature of indigenous African
people.

26. Mis-Education of the Negro
Carter G. Woodson;
"Woodson’s “Mis-Education of the Negro” is still the most thorough articulation on the damage inflicted on the African American sense of self (which includes esteem, efficacy, worth, consciousness, image, and identity) by the American Schooling system. This book lays the foundation and provides the rationale for African Centered Education." Lethandus Goddins II

32. Prophetic Insight:
The Higher Education and Pedagogy of African Americans
Earnest N. Bracey;
Prophetic Insight explores contentious issues in higher education concerning
black students relative to larger society, while providing the competing
perspectives needed to understand and evaluate multiculturalism and the
diverging exigencies facing the higher education system in America. Ernest N.
Bracey invites conversation about the pedagogy of blacks, discusses the current state of Black Studies, the W.E.B. DuBois and Booker T. Washington debate, and Afrocentricity. He invites an appreciation of the beginnings and roots of black education in America, recognizing the debate over affirmative action, and explores the uniqueness of historically black colleges and universities. Most importantly, Bracey provides constructive and analytical information on the necessary methods of examining African American politics and higher education within the context of historical and contemporary issues.

33. Black Young Adults How to Reach Them, What to Teach Them:
How to Reach Them, What to Teach Them
Walter A. McCray;
According to Rev. McCray, it is the black young adults ages 17 to 24, especially the males, who will either make the Black Church and community or break them through their own broken lives. Here Rev. McCray presents meaningful and clear directions and workable ideas to help black youth grow into strong committed young adults. (Black Light Fellowship)
FROM THE PUBLISHER: The strength of the book lies in the author's
identification of unique ways in which Christian education can communicate God's Word to young adults in the Black Church.

34. Heritage
By Joyce M. Jarrett,
Unique in its perspective and range, this developmental reader/writer uses
diverse essays, short stories, poems and plays by and about African Americans to stimulate critical reading, thinking, discussion, and writing. It first provides a comprehensive process-oriented writing guide with illustrations of writing in progress, and then offers a diverse collection of readings. The readings explore 18 themes and will appeal to a broad spectrum of readers — both traditional and non-traditional.

35. Young, Gifted, and Black
By Theresa Perry, Claude Steele, Asa G., III Hilliard
Young, Gifted, and Black is a unique joint effort by three leading African-American scholars to radically reframe the debates swirling around the achievement of African-American students in school. In three separate but allied essays, Theresa Perry, Claude Steele, and Asa Hilliard place students" social identity as African-Americans at the very center of the discussion.They all argue that the unique social and cultural position
Black students occupy, in a society which often devalues and stereotypes African American identity, fundamentally shapes students" experience of school and sets up unique obstacles. And they all argue that a proper understanding of the forces at work can lead to practical, powerful methods for promoting high achievement at all levels.

36. Learning to Survive: Black Youth Look for Education and Hope
Atron A. Gentry;
This book presents the experiences and ideas of a leading Black educator,
interweaving his autobiography with the stories of contemporary street gang
members and former members. Their own words illustrate Gentry's thesis that even the hardest gang members wanted to get an education and want to find "The Hope Factor." In addition, the book offers an approach for dealing with the greatest challenges facing the nation today: urban violence and the mis-education of minority youth.

37. How to Teach Math to Black Students
By Shahid Muhammad
Author has been a math teacher in public and private schools for more than
10 years. He has received numerous awards, including America's Teacher
Award. He lives in Chicago.

38. Contentious Curricula: Afrocentrism and Creationism in American Public Schools
Amy J. Binder;
Binder carefully considers the scholarly literature of social movements
and makes a contribution to it by examining social movements focusing on
the impact of these movements on subnational governmental units.

39. Building Effective Afterschool Programs
By Olatokunbo S. Fashola
“... Provides a breadth of information that interested stakeholders can use in
planning, designing, or implementing an afterschool program. Especially
noteworthy is the attention paid to the importance of evaluation.”

40. Evaluation and authority in independent Black educational institutions
Jean Marie Sharp;
A Black Parent's Handbook to Educating Your Children
(Outside of the Classroom)
by Baruti K. Kafele

41. Educating the Black Child in the Black Independent School
Seth Nii Asumah;
This volume offers an alternative approach to educating Black children in,
especially, our urban centers. We hope that this book will provide an eminent
challenge to students, teachers, and educators, who interact with and teach
Black children, to develop and sustain a successful Africana personality that is
not alienated from the walls of the American school system.

42. Visible Now:
Blacks in Private Schools (Contributions in Afro-American and African Studies)
Diana T. Slaughter;
Since 1970 increasing percentages of Black students have enrolled in all types
of private schools in diverse though predominantly urban regions of the nation.This book looks at all aspects of the educational experiences of the Black children in private and parochial schools, and explores the implications of private schooling for educational policy and future research. The editors'
introduction provides an overview of the educational situation of Black
children, focusing on the interface between the children, their families, and
academic achievement in their schools. The organization of the volume reflects the diversity of private school types attended by Black children.

43. Ourstory
Qaidi Faraj
Qaidi Faraj is a writer, educator and activist who has written a book for our
children about themselves. Ourstory tells them who they are through the eyes and work of their ancestors, the same ancestors who built and cultivated the world's first and greatest civilizations who consistently acted in their children's interest, whose lives consciously followed and defended the patterns and rules established by the universe. It is not someone else's fiction of what happened to us or what they did to us as we sat idly by or celebrated our destruction. It is a factual reenactment of our self-determined struggle to remain powerful Afrikan people. Ourstory is a book to be read and studied by middle and high school students (and adults also because we cannot teach our children what we do not know). It makes concepts, places and events plain without taking away any of the unfolding drama, while the vocabulary subtly challenges them to reach higher levels of thinking. It has already become a well distributed teaching tool among home and private schools, as well as study groups. People often ask for a history curriculum for their children that gives them a sense of self without glorifying that which never was. Ourstory is an essential part of such a curriculum that provides empowering truth.

44. Freedom Challenge:
African American Homeschoolers
Grace Llewellyn;
Whatever the quality of the nation's public schools, it's clear African
American students are particularly affected by their weaknesses. It's not
surprising, therefore, that Llewellyn--editor of "Real Lives: Eleven
Teenagers Who Don't Go to School" (1993) and author of "The Teenage
Liberation Handbook: How to Quit School and Get a Real Life and Education"
(1991)--found more than a dozen parents and children willing, even
anxious, to share their experiences with what Llewellyn calls
"unschooling."

Books on Africentric Education??

The Black Man of the Nile and His Family (1989)
By Dr. Yosef Ben-Jochannon

This book is the first book I would suggest because it is about the world’s first and greatest civilization. Dr. Ben, as he is called by his students, is the father of Egyptology and is the foremost scholar on the subject. I recommend any of his books or speeches because as a descendant of African people his theories are not clouded by jealousy like European and Arab scholars. His books are available on www.menofrespect.com and www.blackclassicbooks.com

Stolen Legacy (1954)
By George GM James

This is the second book because after you have read about the greatness of the people of the Nile Valley Civilization then you need to learn how it was used as a platform to start other civilizations. As the title suggests it highlights of how the Greek Civilization stole everything they had from the people of Kemet. Another book I would suggest on this subject is Nile Valley Contributions to Civilization By Anthony T Browder.

The Mis-Education of the Negro (1933)
By Carter G Woodson

This book is a very thorough analysis of the effect that oppression has had on the Africans who where stripped of their language and culture here in America. It is amazing how a people who created Mathematics, Language and Science were made to believe they had no history and couldn’t even learn these subjects. Written during segregation, Dr. Woodson’s ideas were brilliant and are still relevant today. Other books on this subject are The Shaping of Black America By Lerone Bennett and From MisEducation to Education by Na’ im Akbar.

From Columbus to Castro (1970)
By Eric Williams

Since Hip Hop is a byproduct of African American and both English and Spanish speaking Caribbeans, it is equally important for Hip Hoppers to understand both American and Caribbean experiences. Written by the first President of Trinidad, it not only outlines the genocide of the Caribe Indians but lists the yearly populations of each island. For people who don’t know the magnitude of the Trans-Atlantic Slave Trade this book will over whelm them. After reading this book and seeing the numbers of people killed, all Caribbeans and African Americans will clearly understand they are the same people. Mr. Williams lists the shipping logs with the part of Africa the prisoners came from and what island they went to.

How Europe Underdeveloped Africa (1972) By Walter Rodney

This is the best book for understanding how Africa was affected by European occupation. From lies about Africans trading their brothers and sisters to diseased European invaders to understanding the deceptive lies used to deplete this beautiful continent of its resources. Hip Hoppers need to understand what happened because the same tactics are used here in the States - How the land that was once so fertile became so desecrated by the wars these Europeans fought on it; how the European brought diseases like AIDS which was created in European laboratories and released it in strategic areas to depopulate and inflict genocide on Africa’s people. Hip Hoppers will get clues to how Europeans instigated and fueled conflict among the tribal groups exactly like the US Government (with COINTELPRO) did in Los Angeles with the Black Panthers and the CRIPs and the Bloods. To better understand the role Belgians played in the Hutu and Tutsi conflict showed in the movie Hotel Rwanda watch the documentary Bastards of the Party. Finally, Hip Hoppers reading this book will better understand Africa’s condition and poor people in America’s challenges. Other resources on this subject I would recommend is Diary of an Economic Hit Man and the movie Lord of War.

Can’t Stop Won’t Stop (2005)
By Jeff Chang

I feel it is a good point to suggest a book on Hip Hop itself. This book is the best book I have read on the History of Hip Hop. There are other books but I like how Jeff put the creation of Hip Hop into the context of world events. This is important for both people who think Hip Hop is negative and the diehard Hip Hop fans who buy everything that comes out. Other books to check out are VIBE: A History of Hip Hop Edited by Alan Light, Hip Hop America by Nelson George and Hip Hop Generation By Bakari Kitwana

Message to the Blackman (1965)By Elijah Muhammad

I put this book here after the history books because it is not a history book. This is a solution book. While I am not a member if the Nation of Islam or a Muslim I feel this book has a complete message. Dr. Martin Luther King’s message was mostly political and didn’t include social solutions. The only African American leader to have a solution as complete as Elijah’s was Marcus Garvey. Yet, Marcus Garvey didn’t put his solution in one book like Elijah. Elijah addresses health, male/female relations and race relations. Even thought you may not agree with everything he suggests it is a damn good place to start.

The Bible, written by various people (“inspired by God”), This anthology’s most commonly used version was last edited by King James 1300AD. The Qur'an/Koran (according to the Muslim world, revealed by Allah) written by Muhammad and put together by a committee appointed during the time of Khalifa Rashed `Uthmaan before 50 AH / 670 CE.

I decided to put these two religious books together because they have a lot in common and have had a similar affect on the Hip Hop Community. Both of these books share teachings from Africans on how humans relate to other humans, animals, the world and the universe. In addition, both of these books have been interpreted in ways that have benefited and harmed poor people and the people of Africa who are the ancestors of the Hip Hop Community. Because Europeans and Arabs have conquered and killed to create converts of these religions the Bible and the Qur'an are probably the two most influential books in the world. It is predicted by many scholars that the conflict between the two faiths will bring a destructive end to human existence. As influential as these books are they are also complex and I suggest reading them with a group or a teacher.

The Isis Papers (1990)
By Dr Frances Cress Welsing

Okay, this book is the product of Dr Welsing’s Cress theory on White Supremacy (Racism). This is one of the best most complete explanations of Racism. Understanding White Supremacy will help Hip Hoppers understand better what motivated many of the events of what’s called the modern world. The poverty and un-maintained environment that Hip Hop was born in was the direct result of White Supremacy. The advice in this book will only help Hip Hoppers live better lives.

Behold a Pale Horse (1991)
By William Cooper and Milton William Cooper

Now, once Hip Hoppers process all of the information in the previous books this book’s information will make more sense. This is one of the most important books on this list because it is an honest evaluation of the motives of European leaders and other controlling entities. While most books on this list are history books or opinions on history, this book is important because its predictions are well respected in the Black community, even thought it was written by two white people.

It wasn’t easy putting this list together because there are so many powerful books out there. I have seen other book lists and they seemed to be random or categorized. I wanted my list to have an objective. The objective of my list is to open people’s minds to the events that have shaped our world and the philosophies behind them. There are many books that are good, but most simple repeat things that others emphasize. So I tried to list the best books representing the particular subjects. I hear people say if you want to hide something from people put it in a book. Well, I believe if you put it in a book someone will find it. Books are a very powerful medium. Even the internet doesn’t make books totally obsolete. There is something about reading a book in your hand that reading it on a screen doesn’t have. When the power goes out or while you are on a train or on vacation, reading a physical book is hot. I look forward to more substantive books to come from the Hip Hop Community. Peace out and be on the look out for my book on relationships entitled Hating the GAME.

Here are a few other books that are important because they thoroughly address certain important issues. Please check these books out and add them to your collection.

The African Origins Of Science And Mathematics:a New Paradigm For Scientific Thinking
THE AFRICAN ORIGINS OF SCIENCE AND MATHEMATICS:
A NEW PARADIGM FOR SCIENTIFIC THINKING;
AN ANNOTATED BIBLIOGRAPHY

Developed by KAMAU BEYETE A. SADIKI

Posted by RUNOKO RASHIDI
DEDICATED TO DR. MAE C. JEMISON

This annotated bibliography is a compilation of books, papers and articles that can provide some insight into the accomplishments of early Africans and African-Americans in science and mathematics. It can be utilized for research purposes or just to expand the general reader's consciousness on the subject matter. It is by no means exhaustive or all inclusive. It merely reflects some of the materials that I have utilized in my own research. --Kamau Beyete A. Sadiki

1. Blacks in Science: Ancient and Modern, ed. by Ivan Van Sertima, Transaction Books, New Brunswick, NJ, 1983

A compilation of very thoroughly researched papers that documents Africa's contributions to astronomy, agriculture, architecture, engineering, aeronautics, mathematics, medicine, metallurgy, physics and writing systems. Also included in this text are articles detailing the African-American's contributions to science and invention. Some of the papers that are worth special mention are John Pappademos' "An Outline of Africa's Role in the History of Physics", Dr. Charles Finch's "The African Background of Medical Science", "Steel Making in Ancient Africa" by Debra Shore, "The Pyramids: Ancient Showcase of African Science and Technology" by Beatrice Lumpkin and John Henrik Clarke's "Lewis Latimer: Bringer of the Light".

2. Africa Counts, Claudia Zaslavsky, Prindle, Weber, and Schmidt, New Your, 1973

This is a pioneering work that is well written and documented. It details the early African mathematical practices found almost throughout Africa. A must reading for those interested in the African origins of mathematics.

3. Stolen Legacy, George G. M. James, Julian Richardson Associates, San Francisco, 1976

In this scholarly book, Professor James declares that Greek philosophy is a misnomer. He thoroughly documents the African origins of Grecian civilization and the study of Greek philosophers and mathematicians in Africa. Dr. James also puts forth an hypothesis based on the ancient Kemetic creation story as a metaphorical scientific explanation for the creation of the universe.

4. Journal of African Civilizations, Vol. 4, No. 1, ed. by Ivan VanSertima, Transaction Books, New Burnswick, NJ, 1982

This special issue of the scholarly journal edited by Dr. VanSertima deals exclusively with the African and African-American contributions to science and invention.

5. The African Origins of Civilization, Cheikh Anta Diop, Lawrence Hill Press, New York, 1974

Here we have the most thorough documentation of the African ethnicity of the ancient people who developed the mathematics and sciences upon which modern civilization is based (Ethiopians, so-called Egyptians, Nubians, Sudanese, Colchis, etc.). Excellent documentation regarding the origins of the scholarship of Greek philosophers, i.e., Herodotus, Diodorus, Plato, Plutarch, et. al.

6. An Introduction to the History of Mathematics, Howard Eves, Holt, Rinehart & Winston, New York, 3rd ed., 1969; History of Mathematics, Arthur Gittleman, Charles E. Merrill Press, Columbus, Ohio, 1975.

These two books are primarily devoted to the origin of mathematics in the ancient world, followed by subsequent European developments based upon these model: Kemetic number system, Ahmose (Rhind) Papyri, African surveyors, 3-4-5 triangle, truncated pyramid (seal of the US dollar bill), Kemetic algebra, etc.

7. The Pyramids, Ahmed Fakhry, University of Chicago Press, Chicago, IL, 1975

This book not only describes the structure and dimensions of the three best known pyramids at Giza, but furnishes the same information in respect to at least a dozen others, including the Step Pyramid at Saqqara.

8. The Rhind Mathematical Papyrus, Arnold Chase, National Council of Teachers of Mathematics, 1979

A thorough analysis of one of the ancient mathematical journal left by African mathematicians. Originally known as the Ahmose Mathematician Papyrus (Ahmose being the author), it documents the use of geometry, trigonometry, algebra (aha), arithmetic progression, proportionality, volume and area calculations, etc.

9. Mathematics in the Time of the Pharaohs, Richard Gillings, Cambridge MIT Press, 1972

Gillings thoroughly documents the extensive mathematical activity of the ancient Kemetic people. His work begins with the four basic arithmetic operations and continues with fractions, algebra, geometric and arithmetic progression, and finding areas and volumes of various geometric shapes.

10. Golden Legacy, Baylor Publishing Co. and Community Enterprise, Inc., Seattle, WA, 1983

Golden Legacy is a series of illustrated Black history magazines written in a "comic book" type format. Short biographical stories are developed around great personalities in Black history. Several volumes deals with scientists and inventors. Excellent for kindergarten and early elementary lesson planning on African-American science and mathematics.

11. A Young Genius in Old Egypt, Beatrice Lumpkin, DuSable Museum Press, Chicago, 1979

This is an excellent primer for early elementary school ages on the origins of mathematics. It tells the story of a young African growing up to become one of ancient Kemet's (Egypt's) greatest mathematicians. It is very well illustrated, also.

12. Seven Black American Scientists and Eight Black American Inventors, Robert Hayden, Addisonian Press, Reading, MA, 1970 & 1972, respectively; Black Inventors of America, McKinley Burt, Jr., National Book Co., Portland, OR, 1969

Excellent biographies on the lives of Black American scientists and inventors are detailed in these works. Each of them can easily be used to develop lessons using the "Great Personality" approach as suggested by Dr. John Henrik Clarke. Professor Burt's book goes a step further and offers a still timely analysis of how some of these Black innovator's invention tremendously affected the American and, in some instances, world industrial complex.

13. The Physicians of Pharaonic Egypt, Paul Ghalioungui, Verlan Phillip Von Zabern, Mainz, West Germany, 1983

In this work Dr. Ghaliougui provides us with a good look into the high level of development that was achieved by ancient African priest- physicians in the medical sciences. There were specialized physicians such as surgeons, veterinarians, therapists, pathologists, physicians of the eyes, stomach and teeth, etc. Dr. Ghaliougui also looks closely at the organization of the ancient medical profession and the personalities of some of the ancient priest-physicians.

14. A History of Science, George Sarton, Vol. 1, Harvard Press, Cambridge, MA, 1952

Although this volume deals with the Hellenistic sciences, it is mentioned here because chapter two is a thoroughly written exposition of the sciences of ancient Kemet. A position is taken by Sarton that the supposedly scientific activity of the ancient Kemetic people was indeed scientific and the priest-scientist of that time laid the foundation for later Greek and Western science. "They were our first guides and our first teachers (in the sciences)", says Sarton.

15. "African Star Gazers: Why Doesn't Western Science Take Them Seriously?", Hunter H. Adams, III, Paper delivered at the 5th Annual Third World Conference, Chicago, IL, March, 1979

In this paper Mr. Adams clearly articulates the fundamental differences between the development and practice of African science and what later develops as Western science. He utilized the Dogon people West Africa and their astronomical knowledge, particularly their knowledge about the Sirius star system, to exemplify the differences. To understand the differences in the development of scientific knowledge in African and the West, this paper is highly recommended.

16. The Dawn of Astronomy, N. Lockyer, MacMillan and Co., New York, 1894

This is the most authoritative documentation on the advent of astronomy in Africa. Lockyer scholarly documents how the science of astronomy was an integral part of the ancient Kemetic people's lifeways, from religion to architecture.

17. Secrets of the Great Pyramid, Peter Tompkins, Harper & Row, New York, 1971

An intriguing but well documented look at the early scientific and mathematical investigations in the Great Pyramid of Khufu. An excellent and detailed description of the mathematics, astronomy, geodesics, and mensuration techniques developed form the configurations of the Great Pyramid. Tompkins emphatically states that the builders knew the precise circumference of the earth, the mean length of the earth's orbit, the value po pi and phi (know as the Golden Section during the recent "Age of Enlightenment" in Europe), the acceleration of Gravity, the speed of light, trigonometric values, and a host of other mathematical and scientific facts. He also offers evidence that such great Greek mathematicians and philosophers as Plato, Pythagoras, Solon, Thales, Diodorus, Herodotus, and others named Kemet as the birthplace of geometry, and the place in which many Greeks went to study.

18. Mathematics in the Making, Lancelot Hogben, Doubleday & Co., New York, 1960

This is an omnibus volume providing a thorough survey of developments in all areas of mathematics from Dynastic Kemet of the times of Newton and Gauss. Many illustrations and diagrams in color that lends themselves to lesson plans and class projects.

19. Africa: Mother of Western Civilizations, Yosef A. A. ben-Jochannan, Alkebu-lan Books, New York, 1971

20. The Healing Hand: Man and Wound in the Ancient World, Guido Majno, Harvard University Press, Cambridge, MA, 1975

21. The Edwin Smith Medical Papyrus, James Breasted, University of Chicago Press, Chicago, 1931

An in-depth analysis of what is probably the most detailed medical book written by ancient Africans. It has an illustration of a cross-section of the head with sections of the brain identified in Mdw Ntr (so-called hieroglyphics).

22. The House of Life (Per Ankh): Magic and Medical Science in Ancient Egypt, Paul Ghalioungui, B. M. Israel Press, Amsterdam, 1973

This text is a well written treatise on the medical profession in ancient Kemet. It documents the ancient African sacerdotal medical activity in such fields as surgery, physiopathology, gynecology, obstetrics pharmacology, ophthalmology, and dentistry. Ghalioungui also deals with the application "magic" in the healing arts of ancient Kemet.

23. The Mechanical Triumph of the Ancient Egyptians, F. Barber, Kegan, Paul, Trench, Trubner & Co., Ltd, London, 1900

This is a good early attempt to explain the engineering and mechanical achievements of the ancient Kemetic engineers without the use of some simple machines.

24. Destruction of Black Civilization, Chancellor Williams, Third World Press, Chicago, 1974

Dr. Williams offers the reader an explanation of the often neglected aspect of African history. i.e., how African civilizations were destroyed by hostile forces from Europe and Asia. He goes further and offers a plan on ho to reverse the harmful effects of the destruction of African civilization.

25. The African Presence in Ancient America: They Came Before Columbus, Ivan VanSertima, Random House, New York, 1976

In this book Dr. VanSertima draws upon his mastery of several academic disciplines to demonstrate that African made successful voyages to the American continent before Columbus. He further proves that the earliest civilization in America was influenced by these African visitors perhaps as early as 1000 B.C. (See also Before Columbus by Dr. Samuel D. Marble, A. S. Barnes & Co., New York, 1980; The Black Discovery of America by Michael Bradley, Personal Library Publishers, Toronto, Canada, 1981; and African and the Discovery of America by Leo Wiener, Innes and Sons, Philadelphia, 1920).

26. Scared Science: The King of Pharaonic Theocracy, R. A. Schwaller deLubicz, Inner Traditions International, New York, 1982

28. Black Man of the Nile and His Family, Yosef A. A. ben-Jochannan, Alkebulan Books, New York, 1981

Dr. ben-Jochannan draws upon his varied experiences, talents and academic training to bring the reader a monumental work that shows convincingly that the original Kemetic people (so-called Egyptians) were Black people. He employs a multi-disciplinary approach that can leave no doubt in the mind of honest readers that the Nile Valley is the original home of African civilization.

29. World's Greatest Men of Color, Joel A. Rogers, Vols. I & II, MacMillan Press, New York, 1973

J. A. Rogers brilliantly recounts the individual achievements of African men and women around the world. Each biography is supported by a complete bibliography. This is a rare work that demonstrates that Africans have participated in all of the major cultures of the world.

30. Africa's Gift to America, Joel A. Rogers, Helga M. Rogers (publisher), New York, 1961

This is an easy to read introduction to great African Achievements form the African continent to America. Mr. Rogers offers complete references throughout the book.

31. Wretched of the Earth, Franz Fanon, Grove Press, New York, 1968

The author, a revolutionary and brilliant psycho-analyst, expertly explores the harmful aspects of colonization from the perspective of the colonized. This work has universal applications for all oppressed people in their struggles against foreign domination.

32. Introduction to African Civilizations, John G. Jackson, University Press, New York, 1970

With painstaking objectivity, and brilliant scholarship, Prof. Jackson obliterates the picture of African being backward and contributing nothing of significance to the evolution of civilization. This work challenges all of the standard approaches to African history and provides new insights into the subject that clearly show the development of civilization in Africa. Mr. Jackson provides the reader with an abundance of documentation and references that corroborates the contention of an African origin of civilization.

33. Early Hydraulic Civilization in Egypt: A Study in Cultural Ecology, Karl Butzer, University of Chicago Press, Chicago, 1976

Butzer has produced an excellent primer on the early hydraulic culture of Nile Valley civilization. It is revealing in that show some of the sophisticated hydraulic techniques used by ancient Africans in the Nile Valley which propel them into civilized societies.

34. Selections from the Husia: The Sacred Wisdom of Ancient Egypt, Maulana Karenga, Kawaida Publications, Los Angeles, 1984

Dr. Karenga meaningfully selected and beautifully retranslated several books ancient scared literature that clearly illustrates the high moral and ethical lifeways of the ancient Kemetic people. The Husia also provides literary insights into Kemetic pedagogy, religion, philosophy, and human behavior. A must reading for any student who seeks a rich and clear understanding of Kemetic literature and lifeways.

35. The Sirius Mystery, Robert K. G. Temple, St. Martin's Press, New York, 1976

Robert Temple attempts to shed some light on the extraordinary astronomical knowledge of the Dogon people of Mali, West Africa. The binary star system called Sirius A and B is central to the Dogon lifeway. After doing meticulous research on the Sirius question, Temple implies that the Dogon was instructed in their wisdom by extra- terrestrial visitors from outer space.

36. The Pyramids: An Enigma Solved, Joseph Davidovits and Margie Morris, Hippocrene Books, New York, 1988

Davidovits and Morris puts forth yet another theory on the construction of the pyramids. It provides new insights into the question because old data is not rehashed. Their thesis is that the stones used as building material is a cement aggregate that were casted in place and not quarried blocks of limestone as most pyramid construction theorist suggest. The critical piece of data for their thesis is the so-called Famine Stele found on the Shele Island that, according toe Davidovits' translation, has the alchemical process for producing the aggregate.

37. The Legacy of Egypt, S. R. K. Glanville, Oxford University Press, 1942

This is a compilation of several articles that discuss ancient Kemetic contributions from the calendar to modern Islam and Christianity. There are three excellent papers on mechanical and technical processes, materials, science, and medicine. Good primers on ancient Kemetic scientific achievements.

38. Egyptian Sacred Science in Islam, Rafiq Bilal & Thomas Goodwin, Bennu Publishers, San Francisco, 1985

Bilal and Goodwin are two young African-American scholars that are carrying on the tradition of cutting edge research among African scholars concerning ancient Kemet's impact on the major religions of today. This work documents the parallels in Kemetic lifeways and the Islamic religion. They also proposes an interesting hypothesis about the ancient Kemetic symbol for like, the Ankh, being a symbol of the phenomena in nature known as the Hydrologic Cycle.

39. "Maat: The African Universe", Jacob Carruthers, Journal of Black Studies, Vol. 1, No. 1, San Francisco State University Black Studies Dept. San Francisco, 1982

Maat, in its simplest definition, is defined as truth, justice and righteousness. It was the supreme ethical paradigm which dictated the behavior of ancient Kemetic people and priest-scientist. In this article Dr. Carruthers explains the universality of the concept of Maat and how ethical behavior was a norm in Kemetic society.

40. Egyptian Mysteries: New Light on Ancient Spiritual Knowledge, Lucy Lamy, Crossroads Books, New York, 1981

Lamy studied very closely with the French Egyptologist Schwaller deLubiz at the Temple of Ipet Isut, in present day Luxor. This book provides a good interpretation of the transphysical aspects of the lifeways of ancient Kemetic people. With the exoterica removed, it also reveals a certain degree of scientific thinking that would be other wise obscure. A good reference in understanding the scientific-spiritual relationship in ancient Kemet.

41. Islamic Science: An Illustrated Study, Seyyed H. Nasr, Westerham Press, 1976

42. Le Temple de L'Homme (The Temple in Man), R. A. Schwaller deLubiz, Tome 1, Vol. 1, Apet Du Sud a Lougsor, Caracteres 3, rue Haute Feuille, Paris 6, 1957 ( 1977 condensed translation available from Inner Traditions International, New York)

43. Symbol and the Symbolic: Ancient Egypt Science and the Evolution of Consciousness, R. A. Schwaller deLubicz, Inner Traditions International, New York, 1978 (Condensed translation of original volume published in France in 1949 entitled Symbol et Symbolique).

44. "The Shabaka Text (Memphite Theology)", Chapter VIII in Stolen Legacy by George G. M. James (#3 of bibliography). See Also The Dawn of Conscience, James H Breasted, Charles Scribner's Sons, New York, 1933, pages 29-42; and Ancient Egyptian Literature, Miriam Lichtheim, Vol. 1, University of California Press, Berkeley, 1973, pages 51-57

The Shabaka Text, known in European Egyptological circles as the Memphite Theology, is one of several ancient Kemetic texts that deal with the creation of the universe. George G. M. James contents that it can very well be a scientific thesis that explains the cosmology and physics at the first moment of creation and at incremental times thereafter. In light of insights being revealed by research in quantum mechanics and nonlinear sciences, The Shabaka Text and other ancient Kemetic creation text needs to be given renewed attention for their scientific detail.

45. The Afrocentric Idea, Molefi Kete Asante, Temple University Press, Philadelphia, 1987

Dr. Asante brilliantly asserts the need for an Afrocentric paradigm that accurately articulates the experiences and life-ways of people of African descent. Furthermore, he maintains that this paradigm can only be developed by African scholars. He exposes the inadequacies of logic based Western scientific discoveries in their attempt to understand African cultural data. A must-read for those interested in a more intelligent context in which to understand African cultural dynamics.

46. Toward A Science of Consciousness, Kenneth R Pelletier, Celestial Arts, Berkeley, CA, 1985

47. Turbulent Mirror, John Briggs & F. David Peat, Harper & Row, New York, 1989

This text is the best published thus far that uses easily understandable metaphors to explain the "new" science of complexity, chaos and non- linearity. It offers some insights into how ancient African priest- scientist understood the universe as one and all phenomena within it as being inter-related. It also corroborates the ancient understanding that reality is infinite.

48. "African Consciousness and the Liberation Struggle: Implications for the Development and Construction of Scientific Paradigms", Wade Nobles, privately published paper, Oakland, CA, 1978

A very bold and courageous paper that attempts to articulate an African perspective on scientific inquiry. It offers an African-centered definition for science and formulates a scientific paradigm that is founded on the collective African experience.

49. Black Pioneers of Science & Invention, Louis Haber, Harcourts, Brace, & World, Inc., New York, 1970

This is another good publication that documents the creative genius and inventiveness of early African-American scientists and engineers. (See reference #12 for other sources on this subject)

50. "The Scar on the African's Arm", Hippocrates (magazine), March/ April 1989 issue

This article provides insights on the African origins of the immunization process for smallpox. Most western sources wrongly credits a Dr. Mather for the process but an African by the name of Onesimus revealed the secret of the process to him.

51. "From Celestial Flow to Terrestrial Flow: Ancient Hydraulic Developments in the Nile Valley", Kamau Beyete A. Sadiki, paper delivered at the Third Annual Conference of the Association for the Study of Classical African Civilizations, City College of New York, Harlem, NY, March, 1986

This paper details the origin and evolution of hydraulics system in the Nile Valley. It also shows how these hydraulic systems were developed in harmony with the annual inundation of the Nile and how the scientific thinking of ancient African scientists dealt with both physical and transphysical phenomena, synthesizing intuitive and analytical processes, simultaneously.

52. "The Peopling of Ancient Egypt", Chiekh Anta Diop, published paper in The General History of Africa: Ancient Civilizations, Vol. II, edit by K. Moktar, United Nation's Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization (UNESCO), Paris, France, 1976.

This paper by Dr. Chiekh Anta Diop, author of The African Origins of Civilization, was delivered at the Cairo Symposium in Cairo, Egypt in 1974. Dr. Diop provided extensive linguistic, anthropological, and other scientific data that demonstrated the ethnic origins of the so- called ancient Egyptian people was from the south. His research along with that of Dr. Theophile Obenga was so thorough that the other scholars in attendance was not able to provide an adequate response to their thesis. This paper is one of the definitive, if not the most definitive, work on the question of the origins of the so-called ancient Egyptians.

53. The Dreams of Reason: The Computer and the Rise of Complexity, Heinz Pagels, Simon & Schuster, New York, 1988

An excellent layperson's resource on the recent emergence of the science of complexity and chaos. Well written by a respected physicist who uses good prose and metaphor to explain complexity and it's implication on how we view the universe.

54. Black Athena, Martin Bernal, Rutgers University Press, Rutgers, New Jersey, 1988

This text is a very scholarly attempt to continue the in-depth study of the thesis proposed by George G. M. James, Yosef ben-Jochannan and others. Bernal argues for an overthrow of the old historical paradigms he calls the "Ancient Model" and "Aryan Model" and replace them with his "Revised Ancient Model". The Revised Ancient Model discredits the Aryan Model as pure fabrication motivated by racism during the 17th through 19th centuries and proposes a new paradigm for historiography that show the tremendous "afroasiatic" influences on civilization.

55. Fascinating Fibonaccis: Mystery of Magic in Numbers, Trudi H. Garland, Dale Seymour Publications, 1987

This is an excellent reference for a lesson plan on the natural functions of mathematics. It gives a good overview of the so-called Fibonacci numbers. Most importantly, It documents the fact that ancient African mathematicians was cognizant of the transcendental function, know by the Greek letter phi, which equals 1.618.... It was called the golden ratio in Europe during its emergence from the Dark Ages.
