The following attachment is a pdf file of the entire text which is a 'rough draft' of my unpublished work known collectively as 'The Bible With Complexion'. I am making this information available for the first time. It is the culmination of intensive and extensive genealogical research conducted between 1988-November 2011. 'The Bible With Complexion' is not a single text. It is a compendium of over 137 books (at last count) generated from genealogical reports as well as research notes, a personal manuscript, and thousands of supporting documents. This has become a second generational project which was begun by my father Johnny B. Connor, Jr (1935-1990). It began with our family history and began to involve into a critique of this genealogy which was supported by the research and publications by several family members. The vast majority of the information in the early stages was strictly factional and over time it began to evole into a body of written material based on oral history and written record related to Biblical scholarship and its relationship to African and World History. My personal contribution has been to establish the linkages to Ancient Kemet, Ethiopia, Kush, etc. The culmination of this research was recently achieved and this resulted in the articles and blogposts that I have been sharing lately related to what I refer to as 'Oromiya'.
As with any work based on human genealogy, there are areas of speculation, some of mythic and legendary proportions, while others are obviously contradictory and historical fabrication. What I have attempted in this work is to establish common reference points so that African/Black people can use this body of information to asist in their own family research, while understanding some of the historical events which have been purposely white-washed, erased and plagarised then codified into Western European spirituality/religious systems. I grant permission for the contents of these documents to be shared for educational purposes and human enlightenment.

.......Good to see you are now public, at least on Destee.com, with this well prepared thesis. Here's a link in witness to a conversation between us and shows how long ago we had dialog about it:
The question I asked then has now been answered...(Have you made any progress on completing Dad's work: The Bible has Complexion?)
