According to Owens, the book “point[s] to the fact that the black race has done a great many things we are not taught about.” Additionally, he said the book aims to highlight the destruction “an ideology of socialism, Marxism and atheism” has done to the “foundation of our families, our entrepreneurship, and our manhood and womanhood.”
Owens pointed to the black community during the 1940s through 1960s as a point in history with significant success, despite the systemic racism of the period. Owens suggests this was due to a strong, fundamental adherence to Judeo-Christian values — something that is, according to Owens, desperately missing in contemporary America.
The discussion wrapped up with Owens opening up about his personal history growing up in the deep south, the impact of waning values and the importance of viewing individuals “inside-out, not outside-in.”
