This source is powerful because it is a credible piece of Jewish literature that ties together many different elements of Israelites transitioning into the northern regions of Africa and then eventually into West Africa.

Israel has been dispersed throughout Africa, especially West Africa, centuries before the Siege of Jerusalem in 70 A.D.
Much of this information aligns accurately with numerous other sources such as what Dr. Rudolph Windsor notes in his powerful book called, “From Babylon to Timbuktu: A History of the Ancient Black Races Including the Black Hebrews“.
