The Frank E. Merriweather Jr. Library will host a conference next month called "The Mystery of Ancient Africa: A Stolen Legacy Restored."

His book, a work of historical fiction called "I, Black Pharaoh: Rise to Power," is scheduled for release by Christmas.
The conference will also feature talks by motivational speaker Emery McMillan, holistic healer Kathleen Richardson and Samantha Jonas-Rongo, owner of African goods retailer Soular Products. It will take place from 1 to 4 p.m. Nov. 23 at the library, 1324 Jefferson Ave.
