http://www.amazon.com/exec/obidos/ASIN/159113465X/ref=sib_rdr_dp/103-2782864-1383039 This book is very different. It is a travel book yet it touches upon history and brainwashing of African Americans and how travel to Africa can change the brainwashing. I love Africa so this book did not directly concern me but people who have a bad image of Africa should buy this book. This book is not what I expected but it was a pleasant surprise. This book will make a Black person not be afraid to go to Africa to see it because it informs you of all the misrepresentions. http://www.rootsrecovered.com/ Heard the author on the radio this morning. In the book he talks about using DNA to find the actual region of Africa and maybe even the tribe of your particular ancestry. Interesting and proof positive ( imagine the need to know, reparations, you could now apply to a particular embassy and get help and funding for housing, education loans and grants, you could also walk away with a coming home feeling and a healing completeness.. the reasons for finding out and visiting Africa is unlimited ) . I believe at least once everyone should take a trip to Africa. You know how the whites always say: " Go back to Africa " That may be the best advice ever given. I believe I will take a trip back to Africa.
