Inhaltsangabe: This book starts with unsung cultivators of Western Civilization. It identified these cultivators as Dogon-Egyptians and describes how they passed civilization on the Greeks and the West. When access to Africa was cut-off by vandals and the Roman Empire collapsed, Europe fell into a ?Dark Age? in which learning was stymied. With the invasion by Black Moors and Crusades opening up renewed access to Dogon-Egyptian Mystery System and the knowledge which spawn Golden Age of Greece a Renaissance was initiated in Europe. Secret societies using this knowledge sprung up to overcome the appeal to ?blind faith? and dogma of the church enforced by the Inquisition. Secular humanist who promoted a separation of church and state spread their fascination with empiricism and critical inquiry drawn from the Mystery System to new lands, like the thirteen American colonies, to establish a nation ruled by reasonable laws and evolving participation in a demo-cratic political process in contrast to rule by royal families endorsed by religious authorities and their persecution of unconventional thinking, intellectual growth, inquiry and progress. Thirteen colonies led by secular humanist established a new nation on the basis of their philosophical perspective adopted from the Dogon-Egyptian Mystery System. But economic activity was dependent on commercial farming, particularly in the South, where African slave labor was essential to the generation of wealth. The dogma of racism and its hegemony were devised to break the will of slaves to be free or resist the peculiar institute quest for wealth in the hands of white slaveholders and business throughout the nation dependent on capital accumulated from slave labor. Despite the repression and its coercion, African-Americans asserted their humanity and creativity at every opportunity to contribute to the economic development that would transform the nation from an agrarian state to a global industrial power. In other ways, unsung African-Americans have fought in every war to preserve the very liberties that have been denied to them, particularly in the pre-Civil Rights Era. To break the chains of racial hegemony and its racist perspectives, this book applies a microscope to the distinguished accomplishments of those that defied these barriers and elevated the quality of life and out look for all Americans, westerners and populations globally.
