RECASTING ANCIENT EGYPT IN THE AFRICAN CONTEXT by Clint Crawford Introduction by Dr. John Henrik Clarke
This is a timely piece which seeks to place Egypt in its true historical context. It captures the substantial, unmistakable evidence for the indigenous African origin of the ancient Egyptians. It also examines the genius behind their invaluable achievement in concretizing and codifying the hieroglyphic system of writing that they inherited from their ancestors. It explains their mastery of the arts and sciences as displayed in their monumental architectural feats. And finally it analyzes their highly organized-- not surprisingly, matriarchal-- social system which made it possible for so many of their unsurpassed contributions to be bequeathed to human cultures everywhere.
