In Chapter One, The Falsification of the Afrikan Past: The European Attempt to Confiscate Ancient Kemet, I explore how Europeans systematically denied that Afrikans were human beings and, as such, charged that we had no historical past, including the Kemetic ancient past. The chapter also looks at some of the Afrikan resistance to this falsification and identifies the inconsistencies in the claims of the falsifiers themselves.
In Chapter Two, Afrikan Resistance: A Look at Some 20th Century Afrikan Americans Whose Scholarship Sought to Reclaim and Restore Ancient Kemet to Afrika, I examine in some detail how some of the 20th century Afrikan American scholars and intellectuals saw and continue to see ancient Kemet. I also examine their views of its significance in Afrikan and world history and in the contemporary political and cultural struggles of Afrikan American people.
In Chapter Three, The Political Agenda of the Hemetic Hypothesis, I discuss the political significance of the Hemetic Hypothesis, the religious and secular explanations of the curse or caucasianization of the biblical Ham and its significance in the European's efforts to fabricate Afrikan, European and world history.
Finally, the fourth chapter, The Cultural and Historical Relevance of Studying Ancient Kemet From an Africentric Perspective, explores the effects and implications for Afrikan Americans or the internalization of white supremacist beliefs. Because Afrikan Americans have lost control of our historical past, we have begun to slip into destructive behavior patterns. This is because human beings without a knowledge of a historical and cultural past lose their sense of humanity. This chapter argues that not until Afrikan American recapture our ancient historical past, can we rid ourselves of self-destructive patterns of belief and behavior.
