Ah Jubah! Book Review:

Ah Jubah! A PleaPrayerPromise is a revolution in ink. This rich curvilinear novel chronicles the emergence of six collectives who unite through time and space for the liberation and elevation the Pan African world. Ah Jubah! features Kandace and Cynthia who open a soul food restaurant that specializes in the culinary culling of racist oppressors; Azure and Alteveze who unite warring gangs, convert projects into quilombos, and introduce local authorities to the precision of divine retribution; and Orisa Oya and the Egbe Aje who preside over Edan’s global tribunal for the prosecution of crimes against humanity. These are only three examples of the liberatory works enacted by warriors who revolutionize the concept of revolution. Ah Jubah! offers a dynamic reconceptualization and resuscitation of such revolutionary Black organizations as Ogboni Ibile, the Deacons for Defense, and the Black Liberation Army. The novel also builds on and expands the literary revolutionary impetus of Sam Greenlee’s The Spook Who Sat By The Door, the Seven Days of Toni Morrison’s Song of Solomon, and the society of the ankh of Ayi Kwei Armah’s Osiris Rising. Asiri Odu’s stunning debut novel spans from the dawn of time to the immediate future to offer its audience a blueprint for holistic empowerment for nearly every era, condition, and dilemma.

Chronicles of Eridu Book Review:

The Chronicles Of Eridu is a modern day tale based on the Kemetian (Egyptian) myth of the Neteru (gods) Pa Neter Asar-Enki (Osiris), Ma Netert Aset (Isis) and their remarkable son Heru-Marduk (Horus). And his mission to restore balance to the fallen planet Eridu (Earth). To assist in its evolutionary ascension to 4th dimensional reality as the planet Tiamaat. In order to succeed in his mission set out for him by the elders of The United Confederacy of Ra, Heru-Marduk has to confront his uncle and arch rival Seth-Yurugu who has other plans for Eridu. The tale is filled with ancient secrets, magical spells and rituals, used by the opposing forces of Heru-Marduk and Seth-Yurugu to gain the upper hand in the spiritual battle for the destiny of Eridu and its inhabitants. "If your mind is denied meaningful input from natural interaction such as isolation or seclusion of any type self imposed or otherwise for example. Then nature steps in and causes the mind to dream and generate meaningful concepts to help it escape its confinement. Such self generated concepts are usually works of genius and should be studied, valued and evaluated extensively as diamonds found in a fish net. It was in such circumstances that the Chronicles of Eridu was written and I had nothing else to fall upon but my education both academic and experiential. I know the importance of education especially amongst the youths as Education develops the intellect; and the intellect distinguishes man from other creatures. It is education that enables man to harness nature and utilize her resources for the well-being and improvement of his life. The key for the betterment and completeness of modern living is education. But, ' Man cannot live by bread alone '. Man, after all, is also composed of intellect and soul. Therefore, education in general, and higher education in particular, must aim to provide, beyond the physical, food for the intellect and soul. That education which ignores man's intrinsic nature, and neglects his intellect and reasoning power cannot be considered true education. This why I ask you to follow me in supporting the work done by the charity SOS Africa as we do not want a lost uneducated generation of future leaders. Therefore as a token of appreciation of their outstanding work I will donate a 1.00 from every copy of "The Chronicles of Eridu" sold to SOS Africa" Christosfari Ogidih author "The Chronicles of Eridu" Link for SOS Africa http://www.sosafrica.com/

TECHNOLOGY'S GREATEST TRIUMPH. HUMANKIND'S LAST HOPE... Daniel Kitajima was a creature of mind and machine. His artificial limbs were endowed with super-human strength, his perceptual abilities enhanced with telescopic vision, radar and infrared. With proper care, he would live forever - except for one grim inevitable fact... The Solar System itself was about to be destroyed. The sun was heating up, scorching Earth's deserts and transforming its polar icefields into quagmires. The entire galaxy was in danger. And nothing human could halt the oncoming disaster. But Daniel Kitajima was not exactly human...

Philosophy of African American Studies Book Review:

In this ground-breaking book, Stephen C. Ferguson addresses a seminal question that is too-often ignored: What should be the philosophical basis for African American studies? The volume explores philosophical issues and problems in their relationship to Black studies. Ferguson shows that philosophy is not a sterile intellectual pursuit, but a critical tool to gathering knowledge about the Black experience. Cultural idealism in various forms has become enormously influential as a framework for Black studies. Ferguson takes on the task of demonstrating how a Marxist philosophical perspective offers a productive and fruitful way of overcoming the limitations of idealism. Focusing on the hugely popular Afrocentric school of thought, this book’s engaging discussion shows that the foundational arguments of cultural idealism are based on a series of analytical and historical misapprehensions. In turn, Ferguson argues for the centrality of the Black working class—both men and women—to Black Studies.
