Clarke was truly a genuis, he goes through the slave trade and shows the roles of both various European world imperialist powers, and african empires that played a role in the slave trade and He uses referrences from portuguese and spanyard sources that shows the role of Christopher Colombus and his crew men in the african holocaust as well as the holocaust against the indigenous people of america and He shows how the crusades played a crucial role in the second rise of europe and its exploitation of most of the world and This book is excellent, it is well researched and it answers questions to many unknown or know but unanswered questions.
The personality of Christopher Colombus and europe’s mentality towards the rest of the world has been exposed and I seriously recommend this book for all who are interested in the subject Aug 05, Randall Wallace rated it it was amazing. Europe was short of food and realized it needed more spices from the Far East to use as food preservatives.
Outside of the U. The Civil Rights movement was just a consumer rights movement for blacks. The present job of Pan-Africanism is to unite again all the African Holocaust survivors.
Instead dedicated knowledge seekers had to go to Salamanca in Spain and Sankore in Timbuktu. There, scholars were had been taking all the Chinese maritime information and jotting it down and the Europeans would now take the information kept safely by Africans and use it against them and the entire world. The Asians had a long history of intrigue and knew not to trust the Europeans. But the Africans and Native Americans were generous by nature… and we know how that panned out.
Did they teach us that each of his three ships was nicely stocked with criminals because few regular seamen wanted to come on such a risky mission? A terrific book – the only problem was that it was too short. Dec 05, RYCJ rated it it was amazing. An annotated perspective, primarily through citations, captioning the events that precipitated and nurtured slave systems.
This certainly is the most condensed, ‘familiar’ version, of what I learned in the 70’s about these historical events, and even more certainly makes for a nice source to use as a reference for finding protracted versions on war and the multifaceted contributors at the roots of caste systems and capitalism.
A strong systemic analysis of how and why the Maafa happened. I wish that Columbus’ direct role in it was explained better, it did help me understand why Europe did it, and how it impacted the world greater than most historical events. The book was underwhelming.
Considering Henrik Clarke’s prestigious reputation as a scholar of Black history, that he could put together such a disjointed holocaudt is depressing. Also, whoever edited this book needs to be drawn and quartered. This will be quick, but I’ll write a review later.
John Henrik Clarke was a genius. His historical knowledge and analytical assessment of our issues stemming since the pre-trans-Atlantic slave trade. The amount of information and thinking points he poses within this very short book is quite astounding. Now, the book does not transition well and seems to jump holocausy at times but the information is solid. There’s a bibliography in the back of the book and I plan on checking out all of that inform This will be quick, but I’ll write a review later.
There’s a bibliography in the back of the book and I plan on checking out all of that information. There’s a lot of historical contexts, however, there’s also a lot of Clarke’s ideas, thoughts, and opinions.
Quick Review: Christopher Columbus and the Afrikan Holocaust
You just christopheer to read it. Jun 24, Ulysse Colonna rated it did not like it. To be avoided at all cost! There are much more serious much better informed books available. Sometimes dated, often totally off-charts, this book is a collection on semi-baked ideas and paranoid conspiracy theories that do little to explain how and why trans-atlantic slavery developed in the New World.
One can of course relate to the generous ambition of the author dispelling the chritopher of the European “civilizer”, showing slavery for the catastrophe that it was, etc.
Quick Review: Christopher Columbus and the Afrikan Holocaust
The book itself is short, so you’d think the author would go straight to the point, but no, the authors ane the time to dwell on totally irrelevant matters such as the Crusades or the Vikings for several pages.
In the same way, whatever one may think about Colombus, he was not the initiator of the African slave trade in the Atlantic so putting his name in the title is misleading and a complete loss of time. More problematic even are the judgemental inserts peppered by the author all over the book.
Worse, most of these commentaries are totally unwarranted. No one of note claims that Chrsitopher “needed” the Europeans for anything, the fact is that Northern merchants came and traded manufactured goods for slaves, that’s objective and does not require moralistic commentaries.
In his absurd attempt to colour pre Africa as a lost paradise, the author brings some serious nonsense to the table. I particularly enjoyed the downgrading of African warfare to “skirmishes” as if native sovereigns could amass large armies and conquer massive chunks of Western African mainland without going through some serious “battles”.
In the same way, the author insists on finding twisted psycho-pathologies lurking behind everybody’s actions. Europeans are mad with “racism” and Africans suffer from a crippling “naivety”, as if both groups could not be perfectly rational. Reading this book one can be forgiven for having completely forgotten that, at the basis of the slave trade, was a simple commercial choice: No need for paranoia, cjristopher and mental pathologies, the realty of the cold calculation that led to slavery is terrifying enough.
For those who start reading about the subject, I’d recommend a more serious book: Hughe Thomas’ The Slave trade Apr 12, Kevin Dorival rated it it was amazing. I loved every page of this book. He illustrates why and how our history made African people a powerful race.
I’m even more proud to be black. This is a must read for anyone that wants to know the details ofand the lies that our kids and ourselves are being taught in schools colmubus the world regarding Columbus and his pirates. Clarke even challenges us in the last paragraph of the book, and I accept; a memorial for the ancestors that died during the Middle Passage must be built for o I loved every page of this book.
Clarke even challenges us in the last paragraph of the book, and I accept; a memorial for the ancestors that died during the Middle Passage must be built for our future generations.
Sep 05, Sameena Mulla rated it it was ok. A low tge mostly because 1 I am not a fan of polemics; 2 I have read most of the source material and find Clarke playing a bit loose on the interpretation; and 3 the characterization of Africans as monolithic is troubling, even when it comes with the best of intentions.
That said, the polemic is powerful, decenters and challenges simplistic historical narratives, and the ending, a anv to mourn and memorialize, is surprising and gives one pause.
Apr 18, Karen Brown rated it it was amazing. Feb 19, Daniel rated it really liked it. A great, passionate introduction to Chattell Slavery study promoting Pan Africanism and a better awareness of the struggle. Feb 09, William Warbucks rated it really liked it.
As a consummate student of Dr. Clarke this was just another wonderfully written book by the rebel historian.
Aug 20, William rated it it was amazing. A huge fan of Dr. Clarke and his teachings.
Jan 02, Alexis Taylor rated it thd was amazing. Dr John Henrik Clarke does a phenomenal job with giving historical background on the truth behind America’s beloved explorers and hero Christopher Holoaust by exposing the so-called hero as a rapist racist and murderer of millions of indigenous people. It is wonderful that in the book it takes us to the history of the slave trade and how there is no evidence that Christopher Columbus ever discovered America. Jul 30, Shawn Moffett rated it it was amazing.
Open your third eye. There is a reason for everything. Jul 30, Y. Clark sought to edify in this book and that christkpher just what he did. He packed a lot of profound, thought-provoking, information and theories that really enlightening and challenges the reader. I for one never learned this in any of my education and I wish I had. I will agree that there were certain places in the book that seemed columbux and choppy, but overall the message and the meaning was well received.
My favorite part of the book was chapter 10 when he touches on Japan.
