This work is divided, with students and teachers in mind, into four sections. In the first section, two distinguished historians, Basil Davidson and Cheikh Anta Diop, present the evidence which establishes the African claim to a physical and cultural predominance in the Classical Egyptian dynasties. The second section is a review of the major black dynasties (by Bruce Williams, Wayne Chandler, Runoko Rashidi, James Brunson, Legrand Clegg, Asa Hilliard, Phaon Goldman) and includes a working chronology of the dynasties. In the third section, Theophile Obenga initiates a rewriting of the beginnings of philosophy and Maulana Karenga provides a fresh study of the world's oldest Treatises on social order. Charles Finch informs us of startling medical breakthroughs in his commentary on the Edwin Smith Papyrus. The book closes with a bibliography of Black Women Scholars in Egyptiology (Larry Obadele Williams), a guide to readings on Egypt for children (Beatrice Lumpkin) and a glossary of Egyptian terms (Rashidi and Blackburn).
