It documents the genocide unleashed against the cosmopolitan, prosperous and technologically advanced societies that populated the world prior to Columbus' raid on the Americas. Working from the leadership of Omali Yeshitela's writings and speeches, Hess introduces her readers to a road less traveled by present-day historical revisionists as she chronicles the heroic resistance movements of black people in the U.S. and the violent white response to that resistance. Finally, she shares an optimistic vision for the future, calling for "white people to be a part of the future through reparations to African people" and calls on "white society to align its interests with the rest of humanity and be part of building a world free of oppression and violence." Well-documented and footnoted, this book also provides an extensive bibliography for students of history, political economy and anti-colonial movements.
