Book Synopsis
Siphiwe Baleka, concerned with the lost history of his family because of the criminal European and American Trade in African people and their enslavement, uses DNA testing and a lot of research to reconstruct the history of the Balanta people all the way back to their origin in Ta-Nihisi, Nubia (Sudan), in prehistoric times. Volume I covers that history up until their exodus during the Egyptian XVIII Dynasty (1479-1429 BC). The book is presented as a letter to his sons, so that they will know the full dignity of their ancestral heritage. But the book is also of immense value to all people of African descent whose ancestors were the victims of American slavery, and whose descendants have suffered from forced integration at the expense of their lost ancestral culture, traditions, stories, histories, philosophies, creations, language, and even their names! Volume I is not only the history of the Balanta people, it is the pre-history of all black people.
