Introduction to African Civilization by John J. Jackson is a Black Book Classic. Respected scholar, historian and author John G. Jackson reexamines the outdated, racist, and Westernized history of Africa that is still taught in schools and presents a more factual and truthful account of African history. It shows evidence of Africa's great past through the writings of not only African & African American writers but it also gives proof by the writings of European, Arab, and Moorish writers that Africans were not uncivilized savages but the mothers and fathers of humanity and civilization and the founders and builders of great nations. There is heavy focus in on Egyptian cultural history, as well as the Moors' expansion into Northern Africa and Southern Europe and Africa's contribution to world culture. Once reading this, you will never view Africa in the same manner. This is an excellent introduction to the history of Africa. It also includes an extensive bibliography.
