Attempting to honor his ancestors he discovered himself

A rare and thrilling narrative of The African-American Experience.

Unaware that hunger, sickness and deprivation were awaiting him, a young idealist leaves the United States and embarks on a spiritual journey to West Africa. Repeatedly challenged by a world beyond his understanding and thrown into harsh, critical self-reflections, he is repulsed by the image of himself that Africa forces him to confront.

Road of Ash and Dust: Awakening of a Soul in Africa is a deeply intimate and, somewhat, voyeuristic unveiling of aspects of The African-American Experience rarely committed to print. ROAD allows you access to one of the most universal rites of passage, the discovery of self.

Here’s what the reviewers have to say:

Reading this book allowed me to take this journey with the author. The idyllic image of West Africa was shattered and replaced with the simplistic beauty of people who are rich in culture and hope. This book takes you on journey filled with emotion, history, culture and purpose. It is well worth the ticket price for boarding…


Cyrs brings together two worlds that were torn apart hundreds of years ago, connecting his reader to a history that, while rarely seen, continues to influence America today. Baba’s journey is, very clearly, about much more than just Baba. And “Road of Ash and Dust” is far more than just a travel memoir.


Beautifully written, this book pulled me into a journey I never imagined. An adventure of the soul, the voyage was intimate and emotional.


The author of this book is not only an outstanding writer, able to grip you from the first paragraph, but he was able to lead me on a journey alongside him. It is not often that I have been overcome with emotion from reading a book, but this is not just a book, it is an opportunity to be transformed for the better. It should be required reading for every high school student in the country.


Cyrs is a master storyteller who takes us on an epic journey of the soul. The Road of Ash and Dust is a moving story that takes readers through an experience of the most visceral sort. I got lost in this account of one man’s search for understanding and completion.
