Featured this week on TonyBrownsJournal.com: CHANCELLOR WILLIAMS, historian and author of “The Destruction of Black Civilization”

The Destruction of Black Civilization took Dr. Chancellor Williams 16 years of research and field study to compile. The book is premised on the question: "If the Blacks were among the very first builders of civilization and their land the birthplace of civilization, what has happened to them that has left them since then, at the bottom of world society, precisely what happened?”

Dr. Williams’ research was a quest for some specific answers to very specific questions. Some of those were: How did all-Black Egypt become all-White Egypt? What were some of the specific details in the process that so completely blotted out the achievements of the African race from the annals of history – just how could this be done on such a universal scale? How and under what circumstances did Africans, among the very first people to invent writing, lose this art almost completely?

These questions and many more are answered in my two-part interview with Dr. Chancellor Williams this week on TonyBrownsJournal.com.
