Nationwide (BlackNews.com) -- The Biblical Journey of Slavery: From Egypt to the Americas by Lynette Bani presents the narrative of a family that began in ancient Mesopotamia, and the enormous impact that centuries of enslavement and disbursement around the globe have had on their descendants, Diaspora Africans. As the story traces the movement of this group of people through various world powers and across geographic regions, the reader is provided with insights into the rich history and culture of this group that have been obscured by the systematic dismantling of the truth of their past.
Africans of the Diaspora must learn about their past ancestry, because that knowledge is knowledge of self, affecting the way in which they think and the way in which they behave in relation to their own people. In order to understand the present, one must look to the past, for the present is the result of past establishments on which decisions for the future were made. These are the words of the prophet Moses, as recorded in Scripture: "And [YHWH ] will bring you again into Egypt with ships ... and there you shall be sold unto your enemies for bond men and bond women..." (Deut. 28:68) The Atlantic Slave Trade was the fulfillment of this prophecy.
The account presented in The Biblical Journey of Slaverywill visit ancient lands and show from maps, illustrations and undeniable evidence, episodes that connect Africans of the Diaspora to their ancestral heritage that should have shaped their world. "The sugar and cotton industries affected the economy of virtually every nation on earth. Forty slave factories were set up on the African coast to handle the demand for "Black gold" (Captured Africans)". The nations who were the main players in the trade were Portugal, The Netherlands, Spain, France, Britain and Anglo America ... Perhaps this was the largest combined commercial enterprise of nations ever.
The intent of this writing is to change the way in which the world views Africans of the Diaspora and the way Diaspora Africans view themselves. The information provided will show where millions originated before there was a continent called Africa. The question "WHO AM I" is answered with clarity, ending the dilemma of identity for even the very educated, and the destructive anger that some mete out against brother and self.
