This study examines the role of race in the construction of history and the validation of knowledge. Using Martin Bernal's Black Athena and its critiques as an entree into the historical inquiries of African American intellectuals and many of their African counterparts, Keita engages the contested legacy of writing history in America. Ranging from 1700 BCE to the late twentieth century, he offers a new perspective on the challenge of building new historiographies and epistemologies.

MEDIA REVIEWS
This useful book, which is a significant contribution to Oxford University Press's Race and American Culture series, is a sophisticated defense of Afrocentrism...Indeed, Keita's analysis of Snowden's paradoxes and ironies is a substantial contribution to our existing knowledge...This excellent work complements but does not supercede older works by Wilson Jeremiah Moses and Stephen Howe-neither of whom, surprisingly, is cited in Keita's book. Nevertheless, Race and the Writing of History should be must reading for professional historians. * History: Review of New Books *
