WOW WOW WOW!!!

I can kick myself for not having read this man's work early on in my life.

Every human being MUST read Diop's work.

I will read and re-read his work.

Indispensable!

Heard this more than 4 times now, after reading it once. Dr Diop is truly (as Dr Finch III declares) the first African humanist. I believe his work should be taught at every public school.

The narrator does surprisingly well, but I wish the quotations, which Diop interweaves so wisely in his text, were more clearly identified in the reader's performance.

This work is so vital that it should be accessible for all readers, not just experts, and the quotations could easily facilitate this if the narrator took that consideration for the lay people like myself. The narrator used inflections skillfully to delineate this dynamic. Other than my first comment, there was just one time where the inflection the narrator used seemed to cloud the meaning of the author or even contradict it.

It was, at any rate, a monumental task, and it is to his credit that he could navigate its many controversial points of scholarship with a mostly objective tone.
One thing's certain, those complicated issues were firmly secured in all clarity for the young students of the 21st century.

Thank you for sharing this. Peace!

Amazing book

There were nuances in his speaking. Nasal sounds, pronunciations, things like that that were extremely distracting for me.

Informative and Insightful

I Really enjoyed the informative and historical content. Very accurate historical evidence that’s been deliberately omitted from the so-called history books. Do to the racial prejudices of European scholars.

Essential reading.

You need to read this.
A perspective you may not of thought of, or maybe one that confirms what you already knew/thought. Either way, you need this knowledge.
