Dr. Sebi, A Modern-Day George Washington Carver, What More Can You Know About Him

Can a table of contents reveal the essence of a man? Not exactly. It can hint at his philosophy, world view and skills.


YouTube videos. Posted and shared comments and interviews from the public, including his family. Four books. What more can you learn about Dr. Sebi after all that exposure? I feel there’s much more.



The table of contents in Dr. Sebi Speaks of Dembali shows an addition to, instead of rehashing of, what we know about the botanist and alkaline herbal medicine specialist. For instance, how does he feel about children and bicycles? See Chapter Seven, titled "Usha Village 2008--Dr. Sebi, His Guests, and Dembali."


Dr. Sebi and Maulana Karenga (formerly Ron Karenga) are Pan Africanists but they differ when it comes to Kwanzaa and Karl Marx. How? Chapter One offers a clue.


It’s well known Dr. Sebi was a Muslim and a member of the Nation of Islam. But what about his response to a request to betray Malcolm X? “Los Angeles and the Letter to Elijah Muhammad” has the details.


In Chapter Two, On Matters of Race, Dr. Sebi has high praise for artisan women of Bangladesh. Why?


For more hints of the essence of Dr. Sebi, here now, the Table of Contents in Dr. Sebi Speaks of Dembali.
