Re-Introduction to African History

This book is deliberately centred on Kemet (ancient Black Egypt), and for that, the work should not be misconstrued for the author’s oblivion and/or ignorance to the rest of Afrika and African History. In Kemet, Dr. Don Laka is gravitated to posturing anti-European epistemological hegemony stance to engage in an intellectual-psychological warfare in this epic Afrikan restorative struggle in the area of knowledge with ancient Egypt as the rallying point, so as to make it to Afrika what Greece is to Europe, as in the words of Cheikh Anta Diop. This is a magnificent work that sees Afrikan History as a navigating tool for the identification, in our great strides and achievements in history, as Afrikan people, of techniques and values that made us a great people we were, and make it fundamental to developing restorative epistemologies of Afrikan liberation, rise and resumption of our former glory!The spirit and posture of this book is brilliantly summed up in our warrior ancestor, Malcolm X’s following statement,But when you go back into the past and find out where you once were, then you will know that you weren’t always at this level, that you once had attained a higher level, had made great achievements, contributions to society, civilization, science and so forth. And you know that if you once did it, you can do it again
