  2. Hotep Dr. Runoko my name is rashad moore i live in jacksonville fl i am 28 yrs young and began my journey 3 yrs ago i now am ready to help wake my sleeping city i would love to book you to speak to me and my peers if you could let me know the details of gaining your much needed service. Peace and thank you.

  3. I would like for you to bring your message to Indiana. I think my church might entertain you coming, and I think that the wider community would be interested. I especially wonder personally how much the presence of Africa in the Americas coupled with the presence of native americans might clarify the existence people referred to as “mexicans”.

  4. Hi my name is Tseliso Nkuebe l live in Pietermarizburgh South Africa. I really cannot over emphasise how important it is for your message to get to the south.

  5. I’m enjoying your book!??

    I had the honor of meeting you after your lecture in Harlem on the 11th of this month. I would like to discuss documenting your tours, and creating a series of films on your work and travels. I also have a vision/plan for an international monument to be erected in mother Africa for the entire African diaspora.

    I sent you an email regarding the above. I hope to hear back from one day.

    Best,
    Mensah

  6. While developing notes for a Protestant Reformation teaching/discussion group about a positive idea (i.e., thinking for yourself), I discovered through your book that in addition of presence of Moors in area known today as Spain, black people of African descent served in the Elizabethan court. I am pleased with your book, Dr. Runoko Rashidi.

  10. Adapt your own personal info… though the atrocities our ancestors suffered shouldn’t be forgotten, too much history is lost in the telling of it through “less learned” teaching professionals (typically of non-African descent). Meanwhile many are included in the miseducating of students of all ethnicities. This needs to change. I think we all should subscribe to some version of this narrative to all our children’s teachers, principles and school officials until this resonates as far up as leadership.
    So tell me what you think of this… I sent this to my daughters teacher:

    Mr. Xxxxxxxx, good evening. I’m Xxxxx’s dad, Xxxx Xxxxxx and very pleased with her interest in your class. She tells me about your interest in nature and wildlife. From our intro a few weeks ago, I knew yours would be a fun class—with one exception. You expressed your initial guilt or disdain with reading material illustrating slavery. I’m only sorry I didn’t confront this issue that night, though I’m sure my intentions were to stave off any awkwardness and misdirection.
    A West Indian-American and patron of African interests, I agree that there should be more study of its history. I just do not agree with the “NECESSITY” and/or the stigmatism that “Slavery” should prevail over all other historical values. Surely the children, including my own daughter, should not be led to associate “Slavery” with Africans any more than with any other ethnicities(Europeans as well) that have been enslaved throughout history. I believe that the burden of every African or biracial child to identify and reconcile with these atrocities is at best useless, rhetorical and holds no tangible value. At its worst it’s repressive and derogatory. You’d just as soon teach your students about the predated enslavement of Irish people.
    “ When the Vikings established early Scandinavian Dublin in 841, they began a slave market that would come to sell thralls captured both in Ireland and other countries as distant as Spain, as well as sending Irish slaves as far away as Iceland, where Gaels formed 40% of the founding population, and Anatolia.”—Wikipedia: Slavery In Ireland.
    Mr. Xxxxxxxx, I’m sure your intention is not to oppress our children or saddle them with such dismal themes that if only attached to one ethnicity (not race) of people would serve to stigmatize. The truth is slavery was not the beginning or ending of the African diaspora. It was not the basis of their existence anymore than it was the Irish. There is a rich history to be taught about Africa to our children—undisputedly the “Birthplace Of Humanity”, there are wealthy and powerful Kings and Queens to study…. lessons within lessons about market and trade and finance altogether…lessons about sustainability and innovation of these beautiful and accommodating people…etymological lessons and geography. “Slavery”, albeit a fact of life in many global nations shouldn’t be an identifying or exclusive trait of any one people—more a blemish. To expound on it lends to reminisce about an atrocity, lest you’re teaching a lesson of “injustice“and ”moral depravity”. Slavery was historically used in Africa as punishment for crimes with the conditions of a sentencing. slaves were relinquished to their respective tribes on completion of their terms. It wasn’t until European monarchy sought a more profitable act of indefinite enslavement and American barbarism that would control a people mentally, emotionally and socioeconomically. This wasn’t slavery in-spite of itself—it was ”Capitalism”—so if you want reading material on capitalism, there are less oppressive sources. I pray this finds you well and doesn’t fracture our relationship and respect for one another’s views and beliefs.
