Hebrewisms of West Africa: From the Nile to Niger with the Jews
Black Classic Press, 1999 - 443 pages
Williams challenges the reader by concluding that Hebraic traditions must have swept across "Negro Africa" and left its influence "among the various tribes." While Williams presents a strong case, his evidence also builds a powerful argument for the reverse-that an indigenous, continent-wide belief system among African people stands at the very root of Hebrew culture and Western religion.
