What is Afrika's Gift to America??? In short The Molasses Trade, which actuated the Rum Trade which was used as an exchange for Africans on the African West Coast. Therefore, it was the sale of Africans in the New World...the Slave Trade, that laid the financial foundation of the United States.

Why was the book written??? "This book comes in answer to the revival of anti-negro literature that followed the ruling of the US Supreme court against segregation in the public schools." additionally as a answer to the violence, vengence against private individuals, all the bad mouthing of African Americans by public officials and academician etc., racial violence, and riots during the fifties and sixties.

From The African Background to the expected independence of African nations, it is a wealth of information that is chocked into 272 pages.

Great pictures, great references and a monumental piece of work...... ( )
