From Post Traumatic Slave Syndrome to Self Determination and Greatness Book Description :

The purpose of Volume II of "From Post-Traumatic Slave Syndrome to Self-Determination and Greatness" is to describe how and when this intergenerational trauma was established after tens of thousands of Black African global hegemonies.
