I want to be a cultural icon who will be revered. So I set out to make a holy book. The book mocks and pokes at Christianity which has brainwashed and mentally enslaved Africans. It also connects black people to ancient Egypt. With this I hope to help my brothers and sisters seek a lot of knowledge through reading but also question what they consume because most of it is written with a certain motive. I also want them to connect with their cultural heritage.
