Ngugi

Decolonising the Mind: Wa Ngugi
Ngugi describes this book as "a summary of some of the issues in which I have been passionately involved for the last twenty years of my practice in fiction, theatre, criticism and in the teaching of literature. In the eighteenth and nineteenth centuries Europe stole art treasures from Africa to decorate their houses and museums; in the twentieth century Europe is stealing the treasures of the mind to enrich their languages and cultures...."

A major influence on civil rights, anti-colonial, and black consciousness movements around the world, Black Skin, White Masks is the unsurpassed study of the African psyche in a white world. Hailed for its scientific analysis and poetic grace when it was first published in 1952, the book remains a vital force today. By Owen 'Alik Shahadah, Maulana Karenga, Hakim Adi, Kimani Nehusi

Fighting the slave trade: West African strategies By Sylviane Anna Diouf
Fighting the Slave Trade is the first book to explore in a systematic manner the strategies Africans used to protect and defend themselves and their communities from the onslaught of the Atlantic slave trade. It challenges widely held myths of African passivity and general complicity in the trade and shows that resistance to enslavement was much more pervasive than has been acknowledged." Diouf

The Story of Ancient Egypt

By K.N. Chimbiri

There are already many children's books about ancient Egypt. Yet, virtually all focus on the later periods in ancient Egypt's long history, particularly the 18th Dynasty (Akhenaton, Tutankhamun and Hatshepshut) or the even later Graeco-Roman period (Alexander the Great, Ptolemy and Cleopatra). The Story of Early Ancient Egypt however begins 'Before the Pharaohs' and covers 18,000 years of amazing human history in an easy, readable style

Diouf

Step Back In Time to Ancient Kush

By K.N. Chimbiri

In ancient times there were two very rich civilizations located in the Nile valley region. Both built pyramids, used hieroglyphic writing and mummified their rulers. One was ancient Egypt but the other was the little-known ancient kingdom of Kush, based in what is now the Sudan.

Malcolm

A Lie of Reinvention: Correcting Manning Marable's Malcolm X- By Jared Ball

A Lie of Reinvention is a response to Manning Marable’s biography of Malcolm X, A Life of Reinvention. Marable’s book was controversially acclaimed by some as his magna opus. At the same time, it was denounced and debated by others as a worthless read full of conjecture, errors, and without any new factual content. In this collection of critical essays, editors Jared Ball and Todd Steven Burroughs lead a group of established and emerging Black scholars and activists who take a clear stance in this controversy: Marable’s biography is at best flawed and at worst a major setback in American history, African American studies, and scholarship on the life of Malcolm X.
