Publisher's Summary

Reverend Richard A. Morrisey (born 1858) was an African-American biblical scholar, a Doctor of Divinity, and the pastor of a number of churches in the South and in Pennsylvania. In 1915, he published Bible History of the Negro, with the hope of inspiring a greater desire to read the Bible which he describes as giving "the Negro a place among the foremost races of the world, in wealth, in education, in honor and in religion, a history to which every member of the race may point with great pride and profound gratitude to Almighty God today”. 

The book brings together all the references to black people in the Bible, covering, among others: Ham, son of Noah, Batsheba, Simon the Cyrenian, Nimrod, Melchizesek, Hagar, Ishmael, Rahab, and Candace, queen of Ethiopia.

the African american or negro

Negro is not a descendant of Kham... the zondervan bible dictionary list this information and it has been proven genetically...furthermore Deu 28:15-68 says the ppl of the book, Israel, will have these signs upon them. Do not buy this book. Scientists have shown and these are not my words, the lack of pigmentation, caucasian, from Kakus/Caucas Mountains is a defect and recessive gene. so how could any race of pigmentation be an inferior people 🤔

Bible History of the Negro

Very educational, informative and enlightening. Since the truth will set us free, eliminating the false images in my mind has always been very important to me. Thanks for the start in that direction.
