"The Destruction of Black Civilization" by Chancellor William is a Black Classic Book. The Destruction of Black Civilization is uncompromising, immensely powerful in its scope. Dr. Williams successfully “shifted the main focus from the history of Arabs and Europeans in Africa to the Africans themselves–a history of the Blacks that is a history of Blacks.” It provides an understanding of Black civilization and how the destruction of this great race has come about. From the study of our history, Dr. Williams invites us to learn our strengths and our weaknesses and use them as a foundation and guiding light for what we can and should do now. The Destruction of Black Civilization is one book that everyone should read.
