It's a historical account of African people and their imprint on the development of every society throughout history. It's significant contribution to the study of race, and race-relations, with a highly advanced input and scholarly impressive understanding for students of all ages. It examines Africa's participation in the development of China's first dynasty, Dravidian India, ancient Greek civilizations, and Europe's medieval economy. Readers are introduced to unknown advanced African societies throughout the Middle East and Meso-america's ancient Olmecs, the predecessors of all Native American, or Amerindian civilizations.

The detail research focuses on the abolition of slavery worldwide and on the long lasting avenues blacks have traveled in search of freedom, equal rights, and justice throughout the Americas, and the lack of economic power still existent in Latin America and the Caribbean.

Africans In The Americas (Our Footprints Throughout The World) identifies our history and outlines solutions that yield enlightenment to all. It is brilliantly written to the understanding of readers of all ages and races. It's primary purpose is to educate and inspire the black youth of today, who do not know that their roots grows deeper than their immediate surroundings and stretches far beyond other civilizations across the globe.
