Top 200 books black people must read or die

Read or Die

                                                                                                               

 Good day brothers and sisters,

I am very sorry that I haven't been posting regularly for a while. And thanks to all the people that contacted me to ask why I wasn't posting anymore. Someone even contacted me from Japan!. That's when I realized that people from all over the world are actually reading what I have to say.

Well, the problem is that it takes me a lot of time in research to write the thing I post on this blog as I don't know how not to go into details. I don't like to write something that would leave the reader with some questions at the end. That's why when I write I go into details. Sometimes, I spend weeks or even a month getting together the materials I post, and since I don't carry advert here and I am not rich, it makes it impossible to keep posting regularly. 

It's very important that black people find time to read because a lot of information has been hidden away from us; courtesy of many years of slavery and colonialism. 

Today I want to show you books about black history/African history, so that you can carry on your research from same source that I get my materials. I've also added link to the books to make sure you order the right one because there are some books with same title but by different author. Hope you understand.

When you do your research, you'll discover the truth about black people and that we (black people) once ruled the world and, therefore, we can do it again. When you come to that knowledge, your self esteem would rise as you realize how great the black race. This is why white people would not want black people to study history because they know knowledge of history is power. In 1712, when a British man named Willie Lynch was teaching his fellow slave owners how to domesticate black people like sheep, he had just one fear in his mind. And his fear was that somehow one day the slaves would touch base with history and become uncontrollable. You can't control someone who knows his real history!. Willie Lynch said: ''the mind has a strong drive to correct and re-correct itself over a period of time if it can touch some substantial original historical base; and they (British government) advised us that the best way to deal with the phenomenon is to shave off the brute’s mental history and create a multiplicity of phenomena of illusions.''

There you have it and that's why they won't want you to learn history. They know what would happen when you do.

Let me tell you something. White people believes that we blacks would retaliate against them if we ever come to power again as a people. That's why they do everything possible to put us down at all cost. I am sure you must have heard of British prince Harry and wife Meghan running for their lives to the US because the British monarch had plans to kill Meghan due to the fact she has black gene. The queen fear that Meghan may begat a black son who'll become powerful, therefore, they planed to kill her and cover it up like Diana's case but Harry got an insider tip off that made both husband and wife flee to the US to save their lives. That's just to show you the extent they can go to put down black people.

Back to the books....

I must say that I've met many black scholars along the way in my quest to understand the true history of black people. Most of the things I post on this blog are information from books that are highly recommended by eminent black scholars for black people to read. Some of the books were written by white people!. 

In my many years of studying black history, African history and black people in general, below are the books I have heard black scholars recommend that black people should read. For a summary of each book or to order it, simply right click on it. If you're told that any book is unavailable, don't worry, just use the title and name of the author to fetch it on Amazon.
