    Description

    The Destruction of Black Civilization took Chancellor Williams 16 years of research and field study to compile. The book, which was to serve as a reinterpretation of the history of the African race, was intended to be "a general rebellion against the subtle message from even the most liberal white authors and their Negro disciples: 'You belong to a race of nobodies. You have no worthwhile history to point to with pride.'"

    The book was written at a time when many Black students, educators, and scholars were starting to piece together the connection between the way their history was taught and the way they were perceived by others and by themselves. They began to question assumptions made about their history and took it upon themselves to create a new body of historical research. 

    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? 

    The Caucasian answer is simple and well known: The Blacks have always been at the bottom." Williams, instead, contends that many elements - nature, imperialism, and stolen legacies - have aided in the destruction of the Black civilization. 

    The Destruction of Black Civilization is revelatory and revolutionary because it offers a new approach to the research, teaching, and study of African history by shifting the main focus from the history of Arabs and Europeans in Africa to the Africans themselves. The book, thus, offers "a history of blacks that is a history of blacks". 

    "Because, only from history can we learn what our strengths were and, especially, in what particular aspect we are weak and vulnerable. Our history can then become at once the foundation and guiding light for united efforts in serious planning what we should be about now."

    Great & fascinating history & manifesto for change

    Why is such an important work so horribly unedited as audiobook? There are mispronunciations of basic words & country names throughout the book (it’s grandiose, not grandoise, for one small example). Furthermore, the reader makes mistakes & restarts throughout the text, even using a clicker to signal where to find these edits, but they’ve been left in. Such poor audio editing undermines the important premise of the book.

    The content of this book is amazingly thorough and incredibly essential to the successful process of gaining knowledge of one's self for the Black man.That said, the narrator is horrible! His tone fors not match that of the context of the book. Also, all of the narrator's mistakes were left in the recording. Everytime the narrator made a mistake, there was a clicking sound and he proceeded. PLEASE REDO THE NARRATION!!! This was very uncomfortable to get through. I really wanted to absorb this information in spoken word. I guess I will have to take my time with the book and create my own narration.

    Seriously? They couldn’t find a black man to read this???

    It was very hard to listen to this overly eager white man read this book like he was giving an unpracticed book report. Really distracts from the hugely important and historic substance of this book. Poorly edited would also be a compliment.
    This book should be standard reading in school.

    Narrator

    Please re-narrarate this book. It was filled with mistakes and retakes that should never be in a final copy. The quality of this narrator and the final product was the worst I have heard and I have been using Audible for 3 to 5 years.

    Would Luv to talk with Mr. Chancellor Williams

    I found the book or read informative, informational, factual. or easily cross reference s. Though I didn't clearly agree with everything presented the bases of this work is nothing less than remarkable!!! Very pleasant with the work even his style of presentation, to combat potential doubters or debaters. I think a different person should have read. Places where there were mess up that could have been easily edited out. but weren't plus with a read of this ethnic magnitude. I think the feeling was missing, or emphasis were put in places it shouldn't been and missing were it could have been. But a must read or... listen!!!

    not to be read should be studied

    This book should come with a disclaimer YOU CAN"T HANDLE THE TRUTH. THIS IS AN EXCELLENT BOOK. Now I have to have the written copy to highlight and study.

    Great book RUINED by bad performance

    Countless mispronunciations.
    Confused "Swaziland" with "Switzerland".
    Careless voice performance for an otherwise great book.

    Great book. Bad narrator

    It's a sad fact that thing have not changed one bit for black people since this book was originally published in 1971. The Destruction of Black Civilization is an important book for all those who are open to altering their views on the plight of black people. That said, this book is, for some reason, narrated by a white man. That alone would give this narration a bad review, but the editing is also sub-par. Bits are repeated, and the ending of chapters have an awkward cut.

    decisive and indispensable

    Hearing this for the 3rd time, and reviewing the print version, I now understand why other pioneering scholars of human history declared it to be so ground breaking.
    Dr Williams writing is direct and sincere.

    I was thankful that the narrator of this audio version did not shy away from the inherent rhythm that resounds in Williams' powerful composition.
    However, I was in disbelief hearing how poorly edited it was. A work of this magnitude (still even more relevant today for the youth of the 21st century) deserves the best presentation. It will not do to offer some half cut edits. I was surprised that the Audible team allowed it. Perhaps the narrator, after reading it word by word, did not have the focus to hear the final edit in review. Indeed, he sounded like it by the last chapter.

    I never had the honor to meet Chancellor Williams, but I feel certain the performance of the narrator did not to me seem to match the tone of the author.

    That aside, I was grateful that this masterpiece is available in audible. It will be recognized for its' true worth before long! Thank you, Peace
