A great resource to help African-Americans understand their glorious ancient history!

Despite the growing participation of African Americans in politics and their glowing achievements in education, sports, business, entertainment, and other fields, racism persists. However, it’s not the only stumbling block to their progress. Rev. Dr. Antony O. Hobbs, Sr. points to the blacks’ ignorance of their own ancient history and disunity within the family and race in his book “Food for the Power of Thinking: Book 1 Revised” (Dorrance; 2018).
 
Rev. Dr. Hobbs presents his book as “a historical guide to the achievements of African Americans,” which objective is “to inform, motivate and educate African-American pastors and laymen to the importance of African-Americans knowing ancient African history as well as contemporary history of black achievements in America and the world.”
 
The author underscores the need for such a resource – and for his fellow blacks to learn their ancient history in the introduction of “Food for the Power of Thinking.”  “Please note we are the only ethnic group on earth who has such poor understanding of history,” said the author, “and if you do not know your history, you do not know who you are.
 
“Thus, you cannot respect yourself and those who look like you; therefore, it is impossible for other races to respect you as you would like to be respected.”
 
The book contains essays, poems, and lessons that tackle the history of blacks in the Bible and the secular world as well as tools that will help the intended readers live a good, healthy life, heal their family and community, and discover their history and their destiny.  
 
Though the book is written for any African-American who wants to reclaim their roots and break free from the generational curse brought by dis-Africanization through slavery, it is first and foremost a call to action to black pastors and their congregations. Rev. Dr. Hobbs exhorts the pastors to educate their flock about their ancient African history and the laypeople to assist their spiritual leaders in this mission.
 
Rev. Dr. Antony O. Hobbs’ “Food for the Power of Thinking: Book 1 Revised” makes a great resource for African-American Studies. Order today through Amazon and Barnes & Noble.
 
Watch out for the public display of this thought-provoking book on African-American history at the upcoming Los Angeles Times Festival of Books on April 13-24, 2019 at the University of Southern California in Los Angeles, CA.
