Due to the forced migrations during the Trans-Atlantic slave trade many Africans have been displaced from their homelands, language, and culture. Because of conquest, colonialism, and history written in jealousy, the identity of this displaced people has become a topic of controversial discussion. This African Diaspora has been the vehicle for stealing and recasting the historical people of the land, while also veiling the truth of their pre-slavery existence. After nearly 400 years of the calculated misuse of religion and removal of cultural markers, Hidden in Plain Sight seeks to provoke thought on religion, racism, and cultural appropriation in order to assist in rebuilding the foundation that has been destroyed by systemic oppression. The current condition of “Blacks” in America is an obvious cause for concern, but very few seek to tell the unbridled truth about the origin of this condition, as well as those who have contributed to its perpetuation. This book tackles the echoing questions of “Why can’t we just move on?” Is it truly necessary to know the past in order to change the course of the future? Can there ever be solidarity amongst humanity? and if so what does that look like? As you read this book prepare for a liberating journey with the ultimate destination being a place of unity and redemptive truth.
