John G. Jackson was eighty years old when he proposed to the American Atheists that he would write he would write his Ages of God and Silver and Other Short Sketches of Human History. At the time he was often in and out of the hospital with recurring bouts of physical distress caused by his diabetes. But with, pencil on light green sheets of paper, he began to write by hand the chapters of his new book. They arrived at the American Atheists Headquarters in a dozen mailings over a period of about eighteen months.
Ages of Gold and Silver and Other Human Sketches needs to be a textbook, not alone in every Black college and university but in high schools, colleges and the universities of the nation nationally.
