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.

WORST AUDIO EVER

how this person was paid for or encouraged to make this audio book using his voice is unbelievable and I see a trend from audible around African and Afrocentric littityre that that narration is subpar and unacceptable, is this racial boas perhaps dictating what they deem acceptable for something they don't fins interesting.... seems that way.
not the first time I've encountered this

African Origin of Civilization -

I am dyslexic so it would have taken me a millennia to get through this book. I feel privileged to have read it. I will read it again and again. Audible, now you must publish Garrick A Farria's book, which is a chapter by chapter review of this book, updating finds from the last 60 years since this book was written. Keep publishing books like this Audible they are raw and essential.

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.

Diop is truly the leading African humanist of our time. Indispensable to world history

History told from an honest point

I've finally read a history story told in context with honesty and integrity. The information was clear and concise. The story was told from a scientific point of view. There was not a single socio-political reference, a must read

Best Afrocentric History yet!

Kemetic Science community rereading this book will help you all understand that ALL THE RELIGIONS today come from US! No we aren’t weak, worthless nor slaves. We are divine KINGS only to be reunited on universality once more. What was in the beginning will also be in the END!

Amazing book

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

outdated but very enlightening

language is that of the 60s in how they refer to the BIPOC community but it had really good information in it!
