Columbus Discovered America . . . But Who Discovered Europe? Were the ancient Egyptians black? Did Egyptian explorers land in Greece some 4,000 years ago? Did they plant colonies, establish royal houses, and bring civilization to Europe’s savage tribes? Did the secret rites of their temple cults later resurface among the Knights Templar and the Freemasons? In Black Spark, White Fire, Richard Poe provides startling answers to these questions and more. “Brilliant. . . . Poe has produced a classic volume . . . splendid in its conception and powerful in its execution—a major work.”—Molefi Kete Asante, author of The Afrocentric Idea “Superb. . . . I am convinced that within 20 years Richard Poe’s views will be seen as closer to the historical truth than those of the present defenders of the status quo. The book is clear, well-written, and hard to put down. While we disagree on a number of issues, Black Spark, White Fire is the popular book that I am incapable of writing.”—Martin Bernal, author of Black Athena “It is refreshing to hear the Afrocentric theory of ancient Egypt argued so persuasively, from a viewpoint that is neither liberal nor conservative, black nor white.”—Armstrong Williams, syndicated columnist and TV talk show hostshow more
