headline from the City Sun, Brooklyn, New York's largest Black owned
weekly newspaper. Authors, Brother Shine, Rommell Washington, CSW and
Raquel S. Rogers provide the first review for the non scientist of
Ibogaine, a medication found in the rain forests of West Central Africa.

participation of African Americans in research and demanding availability
of this experimental medication for addicts - experimental to the

religions have used Ibogaine containing plants for centuries. On

government is not doing.
