...Growing up, you rarely see books that reflect black people in a positive way. I recall oftentimes in high school and middle school being talk about slavery, oh, blacks were slaves. And that's the beginning of the black history that's taught in this country, without really going back much further than that. And then we go back a little bit, a lot further in the book, to show how we contributed to the origin of civilization, and how civilization started in Africa, with black people.
