    That's fair. I am not commenting on the man, only the book. I know he is very highly regarded (as explained in a fairly lengthy foreword). However, I just couldn't get on with the god thing. But thanks anyway.

    (And the 'pisstake' comment was teasing on my part.)

    I think it is a very good book. As is the Turner diaries and this https://archive.org/details/Ethnic_C...ns_-_FM_6-2003

    Not sure what you mean. You asked for a list of books about black history month. Regardless of what you think of him, Elijah Muhammed is one of the most influential people of the 20th Century and was the mentor for amongst others Malcolm X, Muhammed Ali and Minister Farrakhan. His religious\ Political doctrine underpinned most of the late 80's early 90's Hip-Hop.

    I dunno what that means Satch.

    Well I am definitely not the target audience. The book is about a type of Islam that the author says is only for black men, and he bans white men from his mosque teachings. And me, so white, I am almost blue, and atheist since I was about 10.

    That said, he is absolutely right about christianity.

    Have ordered the Elijah Muhammad book from the library. Tried the Neely Fuller radio show, but the sound was awful, and generally had no idea what he was saying (the new 'sexuality'?), but I suspect more listenable stuff might be elsewhere. And I am absolutely knackered, so my concentration is Donald.
    Yeah, I get the Neely fully show criticism. The audio is poor, the radio host is crap with poor phrasing of questions and Fuller is 90 years old in October this year.

    He does sound a fascinating chap. I would happily welcome any recommendations as to any aspect of Black History, not just West Africa circa WW1. I've just finished Norman Davies' Forgotten Kingdoms and am now reading Danubia, and am feeling like I need a corrective to Mitteleuropa.

    James Budgett-Meakin’s books are interesting and informative, although written by a white man. So I wouldn’t discount them altogether.

    If anyone has any recommendations for life in Africa (especially West Africa) at the start of the Twentieth Century I'd be very interested. Not a history of the scramble, or some Out of Africa white man's burden shit, but a history of what it was actually like to live there at the time.

    started a topic Happy Black History Month.

    Happy Black History Month.

    Yeah, so nothing about it on here, and 6th February. How woke I am!

    Admittedly, the best I could do is re-read "The Color Purple". And it's ... unhelpful, because I can't get Whoopi Goldberg out of my head. Which, incidentally, is not a bad place to be.
Working...
