Publishing books about peoples of African Descent
Nile River Press is absolutely unbelievable
Its time that you took your website to the next level.
A Quote For Your Mind

”When you control a man’s thinking, you do not have to worry about his actions. You do not have to tell him not to stand here or go yonder. He will find his “proper place” and will stay in it. You do not need to send him to the back door. He will go without being told. In fact, if there is no back door, he will cut one for his special benefit. His education makes it necessary.”

Carter G. Woodson, PH.D
The Mis-Education of the Negro, 1933

I was here once before

by Frederick L. Hargrove 8/24/00 Copyright 2000 All rights reserved

I was here once before
As an African King ready to explore;
I conquered the land and the invaders
and I ruled over dictators.

I built great and lasting civilizations
This was one of my revelations;
I constructed the great pyramid
When I was only a kid.

My grandfather invented the alphabets, writing, mathematics and astronomy and the small tool
This type of information is not taught in your school;
I developed the greatest minds and left a body of literature for you to see
Isn’t this amazing what we can be?

I had a girlfriend by the name of Cleopatra
Who was a queen that lived in Africa;
We fell in love during the rule of my first dynasty
Sharing my rulership with her made it special to me.

I have appeared here in a place called America
It doesn’t look anything like the continent of Africa;
The black people that I see
Seem to have lost their history.

I was here once before
I don’t like what I see anymore.
