About Black Classic Press

Founded in 1978, Black Classic Press is devoted to publishing obscure and significant woks by and about people of African descent. We specialize in republishing because we wanted to extend the memory of what we believe are important books that have helped in meaningful ways to shape the Black diasporic experience and our understanding of the world.

Ancient Future
Wayne B. Chandler
Foreword by Ivan Van Sertima
ISBN 1-57478-001-8

Ancient Future represents more than two decades of dedicated research and is one of the most valuable resources on Egyptian thought and its contemporary value. The Seven Hermetic Principles of living are mentalism, correspondence, vibration, polarity, gender, rhythm, and causation. Chandler presents these ancient principles in a focused, practical, and comprehensive manner. Applying them can enhance our understanding of social, political psychological, and spiritual maters. The seven axioms of ancient Egypt are a doorway through time into an ancient past which, when understood and applied, can help prepare us for the future.

Itís important for us to know that the ideas, practices, and concepts that went into the making of Judaism, Christianity and Islam were already old in Africa before Europe was born.
