    7 things you would have learned if you read The Isis Papers


    The Isis Papers: The Keys to Colors by Dr. France’s Cress Welsing is my favorite non-fiction book. As I shared with my dearest friend, Karriem Shabazz, recently, it did not matter how many history books I had read, if I did not have an understanding of the system that destroyed black history, my education would have been incomplete.

    Historical consciousness is not enough. Cultural consciousness requires that we not only know our history but also have a psychological and sociological awareness. Knowing our history is just one move on the planetary game of chess between African and European peoples. Recognising what his-story has done to our psyche and why we are still psychologically enslaved is another. The Isis Papers centres all my learning. It creates a firm foundation for me to build my historical knowledge upon, otherwise I would have been engaging in building a house of knowledge on sands.

    France’s Cress Welsing dedicated The Isis Papers to “the victims of the global system of whyte supremacy (racism), all non-whyte people worldwide, past and present who have resolved to end this great travesty and bring justice, then peace to planet Earth.”

    The Isis Papers was a good read. It was part of my personal curriculum when I was going through 120.
