We asked Historian Robin Walker; If everyone came from Africans who migrated off the continent, how did other races emerge?
In 1999 he wrote Classical Splendour: Roots of Black History published in the UK by Bogle L’Ouverture Publications. In the same year, he co-authored The West African Empire of Songhai, a textbook that is used by many schools across the country. In 2000 he co-authored Sword, Seal and Koran, the best study there has ever been on the Songhai Empire of West Africa.
For the Peoplescience Intelligence Unit, he was sole editor of the Black Community Report 2000, the Black Child Report 2001, and the incomparable Asian Community Report 2001. In 2005 he wrote the script for the independent documentary History Report: In Search of African Splendour.
In 2006 he wrote When We Ruled. This work is the single most advanced historical synthesis on the history of Africa and its people. It has established Walker as the leading authority on the topic in the English speaking world. In 2008 he wrote Before The Slave Trade which developed some of the themes in When We Ruled.
