    I realize that this is not the forum for this but, I figured this would be the best place to get an answer.

    From Babylon to Timbuktu: A History of the Ancient Black Races Including the Black Hebrews (Paperback)
    by Rudolph R. Windsor

    Has anyone read the above book? If so, what it your take on it?
    Someone recently suggested that I read it, but I would like to get the thoughts of some of the people here prior to getting it.

    Thanks.

    I have read it.

    It poses an interesting take on the Islamic legacy of Africa, but the whole Hebraic aspect (Windsor appears to be a Black Hebrew activist, or a sympathizer at the very least) is just more attempts to legitimize the Abrahamic legacy by superimposing it over the true, superceding African legacy.

    Overall, it's a good read, but I wouldn't place too much stock in it from an academic perspective.

    PEACE
