Shabaka’s Stone explores and explains many scientific theories on multi-dimensional levels. Shabaka’s Stone tells us that we are born with everything we need to solve all of our life’s challenges. We are the Creator having a human experience. Every day, when you wake up is like Ptah rising out of the Nun (state of unconscious). This energy conversion, waking you up initiates your simple and self-conscious state of thinking, realizing who you are coming up out of your sleep.

Spirituality Before Religions, delves deeply into many ideas researched by many brilliant writers and scholars. This clear and concise philosophy guided early humanity into the heavens on earth, while creating a heaven on earth. African educator, Dr. John Henrik Clarke teaches us that to be self-sufficient, people have to see the Creator when they look in the mirror. If not, they will never have a healthy “self-concept.”

This book marks the beginning of a highly anticipated series to increase our cultural competence by one of our great Master Teachers. This book is a literary libation that elevates and celebrates the life and legacy of William Leo Hansberry, the Father of Black Studies. He had the character, consciousness and commitment to "rescue and reconstruct our history and put it back into the hands of those who created it" (Karenga, 1984).
