    African American History Culture : Peter Tosh Documentary: Stepping Razor, Red X

    I saw this documentary many years ago. And I really feel it gave me a lot of insight into the economic and cultural conditions under which my parents came came up. It's an insightful look at a Black visionary, and true to the bone Pan Africanist. From IMDB: On a fall night in 1987, three men...

    Ethiopia : Kebra Nagast (Ethiopian Orthodox Texts) has an updated new French translation
