This great book has something for most. If you like Egyptian history, empowerment and family dramatics, this book will hold your attention. Transported to another time and place, I was unable put it down as I came to know these characters. Enjoy this book! I sure did! Elaine – Amazon Review
This written Masterpiece brings light to the accurate imagery of African kings never seen before by the western world. The ancient Egyptians before the coming of Greeks and later Romans were, African people. The novel is a powerful mythological story based on the Historical life of the expansionist Warrior “King Thutmose III”, who is also called the “Napoleon of Egypt”.
A prophecy is given to the sorcerer by way of dream, about a coming birth of a child that would become a mighty conqueror of nations. But his birth, would be darkened with betrayal, Deceit and eminent death to the Royal throne.
A book destined to leave a legacy… I, Black Pharaoh: Rise to Power by Emmanuel Kulu, Jr.
From the Author:
Insertion of Kemet: The Ancient Egyptians did not refer to their homeland as Egypt. In fact, they called it Kemet, which means “Land of the Blacks”, or “The Black Land”. The term “Egyptian or Aegyptus” was not used until the later Ancient Greeks made contact with modern-day Egypt. Therefore, I find it appropriate to use the term Kemet, and Kemites, when there is dialogue spoken between Egyptians throughout the story. While describing the scene, I used the modern terms, Egypt and Egyptian, to help the reader make the connection.

Based on his thorough research, Kulu created a historical fiction based off true events, “I, Black Pharaoh: Rise to Power (2020)” & “I, Black Pharaoh: Golden Age of Triumph (2021)”.
Both novels restore the true African imagery of Ancient Egypt (Kemet).
