Title: Journey to the Motherland: From San Francisco to Benin City

Publisher: Amen-ra Theological Seminary Press

Reviewer: W. H. McDonald, Jr. – AAA Founder

An Autobiographical Voyage of Self-discovery!

Some people go off to college and the great universities to get all
their education from books. Author Larry Ukali Johnson-Redd has been
on a life long journey seeking to discover his own self and his place
in this world. His autobiography "Journey to the Motherland: From San
Francisco to Benin City" is not just about a physical trip but a
quest for emotional and spiritual discovery. His story is
heartwarming and even enlightening at times.

The stories of his life are mixed in with wonderful insightful
poetry. Truly a man with a life mission he pushes onward and inward
at the same time. You are left at the end of the book wanting a full
accounting and update on his life since he wrote this book.

The book explores race relations, love, leaving one's country and
returning. As a white man reading this book I found myself fascinated
with his whole experience. He writes as a Black man but his message
of love and understanding and acceptance speaks to all of us.

The American Author Association gives this book its highest book
rating of FIVE STARS! It also carries my personal endorsement and
recommendations. The book is truly inspirational and is worth your
time to read it.

What exactly is your ideology?!
I'll be honest. I like black culture forums, so I've signed up for this one, BX, and Lipstick Alley. I won't post too often, only on things that I'm really interested in. Nice to meet you. :)
