If Blacks on Earth were given the choice to either leave or stay, which would they choose?
Filmmaker/Author DeForest Mapp writes a provocative science fiction romance novel entitled, "The Great Departure, The House of Erydia". The novel was written to give readers a chance to witness the inception of an advanced spiritually technological race of people on Earth 4.5 billion years ago.
For roughly 439 years and to this day, Africans and their descendants have been the only people enslaved in the United States. But if slaves were the descendants of a remnant of those who stayed behind, why did the rest choose to depart? Where did they depart to?
"A question we should all ask ourselves is 'Are we where we're supposed to be?'"
-- Khalil Abdul Muhammad
Right now, "The Great Departure, The House of Erydia" (Ah rid e Yuh') is only offered as an ebook and is available for 5 USD on its home website, http://thegreatdeparture.com.
