The African Origin of Civilization: Myth Or Reality
Edited and translated by Mercer Cook.Laymen and scholars alike will welcome the publication of this one-volume translation of the major sections of C. A. Diop's two books, Nations negres et culture and Anteriorite des civilizations negres, which have profoundly influenced thinking about Africa around the world. It was largely because of these works that, at the World Festival of the Arts held in Dakar in 1966, Dr. Diop shared with the late W. E. B. DuBois an award as the writer who had exerted the greatest influence on Negro thought in the 20th century.

.....The book is a excellent read, it goes through all the lies Europeans have concocted throughout the world and thoroughly proves them wrong.. Although I am not black, people have to remember that mankind not only started in Africa, but it existed there for a very long time before humans first left for other unpopulated parts of the world. Every person of color knows the most ancient were not white, and that the ancient egyptians were also black Africans; like their own writings suggest by saying that they came from deeper in Africa.
Google shows excerpts in other books, mainly white authors, but none in this one. Very strange.
