Details

Tyrone Givens created this book series in order to serve as an educational tool for those who have an interest in afrocentric, historical events. A book series that has been accepted into the Schomburg Center for Research in Black Culture as well as accomplishing best seller for fiction. First and foremost, the intention of this series is to inform the reader of relevant historical facts. The secondary purpose is to entertain the reader with a science fiction story that will hold their interest while presenting names, dates and facts that are essential to understanding the nature of events that lead to the change in their condition from approximately 3500 BCE to present date. This book series is intended for all readers above the age of thirteen, adult and teenager alike. Both the student of history and the novice, who has just begun the journey to self awareness, will enjoy this series for the wealth of information contained within as well as the rich science fiction aspect of the story told.

The African community, both continental and diaspora, needs its own heroes. Tyrone Givens did this for that cause, and for the Melanated children who suffer from low self esteem as well as low self worth. As a community, peoples of African descent talk about their children being bombarded with negative influences all the time… While few of them recognize that a problem exists, an easy solution is not readily apparent. The Bennu Project book series is his contribution toward what he sees as a solution to the number one problem that plagues his community. The book itself is a metaphor for “ourstory,” told as science fiction, and tells the tale of a young man whose whole world has been overrun and oppressed by foreign invaders. When the man stumbles upon long forgotten knowledge, it opens up an entirely new perspective for him, along with everyone else on the planet who have no idea about their true heritage. Will he be able to use that knowledge to help advance and free his people?

Tired of seeing black faces depicted as criminals, cowardly or worse? As a people, it is time for those of African descent to do something about the way their children see themselves. The community must instill a sense of high self worth into the next generation. Otherwise, another generation of black men and women will come of age believing they were born to be no better than slaves, with no history beyond the triangle trade.

Tyrone believes that the first step to restoring what the global African presence has lost over the last three thousand years is to organize a unified front. To that end, he has been an active supporter of  Houston Unity Tribe, New Era Detroit and several other community based initiatives located in various cities.  He consistently encourages the fans of his book series to support these community based groups as often as they can. In his opinion, the second most important step is for the community to control their own narrative by owning their own media outlets and supporting black owned media at every opportunity. They must begin to use video and print media to help combat negative stereotypes that craft specific perceptions about black men, women and their families. That is what Tyrone hopes to achieve with this series. Please enjoy what he has created.
Copies of The Bennu Project and its sequel, M Hsst Drtyu, can be found on his website as well as on Amazon.com. Excerpts from both books can be found on Goodreads.com and previewed online free of charge. Finally, a short video of the author’s comments can be found on the Children of KMT youtube channel –  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4dh4Xs7pQgo

Great teaching tool
I have become a fan after reading the first few chapters. The author grabs your attention immediately and throws you right into the story. Not only is this book paralleled with historical facts and action packed but it reminds us of the culture and values we use to hold as a people. I have fallen in love with characters and can't wait to see the relationships they form. It's a great tool to use when educating our youth on their history. It opens up the conversation about topics that are often times uncomfortable. I will be reading this series to my 8 and 10 year old nephews (of course omitting anything not age appropriate for the time) .
