"American Apartheid" discusses the unfair and brutal treatment of Native Americans and Africans in the United States. Similar to the African tradition of storytelling, the author recreates the injustices of the founding fathers of this country against the ancestors of the Native Americans and enslaved Africans. The historical perspective of "American Apartheid" sheds light in the dark tunnels of ignorance so prevalent in the teaching of American history. Most black children in the USA are taught that 6 million Jews were murdered in the Holocaust. Yet, they are not taught that 120 million Africans died because of the effects of slavery, nor are do they learn of the torment Native Americans suffered at the hands of their persecutors. Even more alarming, they know little or nothing about Africans before they were forced to be slaves.

The purpose of this book is to teach American history in more than one color and from something other than a white perspective. Rekindle the agressive spirit that was part of the civil rights movement of the 60's. The stories told by blacks about the history of America must be handed down to each generation. If one generation is allowed to forget, all Americans risk repeating the horrific mistakes of our past.
