by Rev. Dr. Antony O. Hobbs, Sr., Ed.D.
Food for the Power of Thinking, Book II traces the origin of the races, proving that the first people of creation were people of color: black, brown, and other shades of complexions – but not white. It also shows the black nations of the Bible and their disbursement worldwide. The text informs, motivates, and educates Africans and African-Americans of the importance of knowing about ancient African history, as well as contemporary history of black achievements in America and the world.
Dr. Hobbs declares that African-Americans compose the only ethnic group on earth who has such a poor understanding of its history. To better inform the group of its culture and history, Dr. Hobbs has traced the descendants of Ham from the Bible, the father of the black race, for the purpose of informing the present-day Hamites of their world history and show where they came from and are presently located in the world scene.
