As Troy Johnson, President and Webmaster,, undertakes the massive upgrade and overhaul of the website, he talks about re-discovering the works of several historic African-American authors namely, John Henrik Clarke, Amos Wilson, Chancellor Williams, Walter Rodney, and more.

How Europe Underdeveloped Africa by Walter Rodney was another great find. Ruth J. Morrison added that a companion book to How Europe Underdeveloped Africa is The Mis-Education of the Negro by Carter G. Woodson, a historian, founder of Black History Month, and one of the first African-Americans to graduate from Harvard.
