The distinguished scholar Dr. Asa Hilliard says of this book, that "I know of no other comparably insightful treatment of African family structures based on empirical study... (T'Shaka) has... shared a vision about the resurrection of African people and a prescription for action."

The distinguished scholar Dr. John Henrik Clarke states "Dr. T'Shaka is one of a number of scholars doing new and ground breaking work... in examining Africa's Idea of a Just society... with emphasis on the complementary relationship between men and women... He has done his homework. The main thing I ask of the reader of this work is that they, too, do their homework."

While this book covers African history, African American music, spirituality, Black economics and African philosophy, this is the first book to provide a practical model for African and African American families: a Twin-Lineal Model. In this model, descent through the mother and father (twin-lineage) requires respect for masculine-feminine qualities and male-female governance of our families and communities. Today when 38% of African-American families have two parents, and the computer economy favors small creative businesses, the Twin-Lineal family system provides a 21st century economic model of cooperative, equal, improvising, family units, where males and females use their economic creativity to produce popular products rooted in African and African-American culture, such as music, art, clothes, and food.
