Publisher's Summary

Dr. Joseph Elias Hayne (1848-1911) was a physician and minister of the American Methodist Episcopal Church. He was one of a number of early black writers who challenged white racist theories that demeaned people of African origin. In his book The Negro in Sacred History (1887), he sought to refute all prejudices against black people by tracing the descendants of the biblical Ham with reference to archaeological and historical scholarship. Hayne argued that Ham was Noah’s favorite son and identified the Mediterranean deity Jupiter Ammon as a representative figure of Ham.

Correction

The so- called black race are decedents of Abraham Isaac and Jacobs and not Animals like monkeys you have been listening to the so-called white man’s doctrine too long we are the chosen people according to the book of Deuteronomy chapter 7 verse six. Adam was created by the dust of the ground that’s true now what color is the dust of the ground I hope you said brown or dark brown or light brown either way it’s not from monkeys and animals.
