This year, Saunders is promoting his book to new readership by way of a fresh marketing campaign. His book will be advertised in the New York Times Sunday Book Review as part of this new promotional venture.

In his 2014 book “Black Divinity: Manifesto of The Black Theocracy Second Edition” (published by AuthorHouse), author, activist and scholar Tony Saunders gives an eye-opening, thorough account of the historical development of the black community’s efforts to reach self-actualization. The book was inspired by teachings of the Five Percent Nation and Saunders’ real-life experiences as a veteran of the 1990s New York gang wars.

“I will be exploring the history of Western development,” Saunders says, “the advancement toward modernity and post-modernity, and the religious and theological challenges to be fronted in order to adapt a theocratic opposition to the current system in place in the world.”

An excerpt from “Black Divinity”:

“The black theocracy is itself a system based on the identifying of a black theodicy, that is, a study of God’s righteousness and benevolence from a black person’s perspective. Having arisen from the black streets of New York as the godbody, the black theocracy is based primarily on the use of codes and culture to find black identity amid the difficult and adverse situations of racism, poverty, marginalization, dyseducation, demonization, humiliation, and habitual incarceration.”

About the Author
As a veteran of the 1990s United States gang wars and champion of the Brooklyn, New York Crips, Tony Saunders was originally accepted by the godbody in 1997 after joining several other gangs in his community. Though at that time he did not officially join the Five Percent movement, he maintained an affiliation with the godbody and played a part in many of their “ciphers.” Being an experienced member of the 187 Gangsta Crips, Saunders, at that time known as 187 Foot-C Loc, spent his time in the East New York, Flatbush and Brownsville areas of Brooklyn mainly focusing on issues relating to the street life, but in 2004 finally committed to the godbody just before getting deported to London where he now lives as a devoted member.
