Virtually anyone, anywhere knows that six million Jewish human beings were killed in the Jewish Holocaust. But how many African human beings were killed in the Black Holocaust–from the start of the European slave trade (c.1500) to the Civil War (1865)? And how many were enslaved? The Black Holocaust, a travesty that killed millions of African human beings, is the most underreported major event in world history. A major economic event for Europe and Asia, a near fatal event for Africa, the seminal event in the history of every African American–if not every American!–and most of us cannot answer the simplest questions about it. The Black Holocaust For Beginners–part indisputably documented chronicle, part passionately engaging narrative–puts this tragic event in plain sight where it belongs! This long overdue book answers all of your questions, sensitively and in great depth.
