Ancient Egypt

Ancient Egypt:

The cradle of civilization lies in Africa. The Ethiopian civilization, of which lower Egypt was a part, can take credit for providing the impetus for all great civilizations. The debt we owe to Mother Egypt is great in deed. From writing, to astronomy, city planning, stone buildings, mathematics, medicine, you name it, they did it. You are heirs to the world's greatest civilization....

Black War Heroes:

Blacks fought valiantly in all of America's wars, even when facing extreme injustice at home. Check out this song from the civil war era:

"We have done with hoeing cotton, we have done with hoeing corn,
We are colored Yankee soldiers, now, as sure as you are born;
When the masters hear us yelling, they’ll think it’s Gabriel’s horn,
As we go marching on.
Glory, glory hallelujah! "

  Sea Kings

Mandingo Sea Kings

Al'umari's (a 14th century scholar) report tells of the glorious expeditions of Abubakari, a Mali emperor. In 1307,Abubakari launched 200 ships filled with men, and others in the same number filled with gold, water, and supplies to last for years onto the Atlantic Ocean. The emperor ordered the ships to return only when they reached the extremity of the ocean. The captain of the lone ship that returned informed Abubakari that a river in the middle of the ocean had taken the other ships. Abubakari equipped two thousand vessels and set sail due west from the West African coast, never to return. This began the reign of the great Mansa Musa.

Who Really Discovered America?

Egyptian Sea Voyages

Columbus states in his Journal of the Second Voyage, when he arrived in Espanola (Haiti), the Native Americans informed him that blacks had come from the south and southeast, trading in gold-tipped metal spears (bling, bling). Ironically, Columbus himself may have been the first to disprove his own discovery of America.

The Gulf of Mexico is the terminus, or end-point, of ocean currents that sweep you automatically, almost irresistibly from the West African coast. This area was dominated by the Olmec, the first major high culture of the Americas. Colossal stone heads (30 to 40 tons) found at Tres Zapotes and La Venta exhibit many Egypto-Nubian traits such as the seven braided hairstyle (found nowhere else in the Americas) and helmets which accurately mirror helmets adorning the colossal heads at Tanis, in the Egyptian delta. Rafique Jairazbhoy presents even more conclusive evidence of the contact between Egyptians and Early Americans. An Olmec dignitary at Cierro de la Piedra wears the double crown, with the serpent and bird motif. The only two culture-areas in the world to wear this double crown are the Ancient Egyptian and Native American.

  Queen Hatshepsut
Hatshepsut, Ancient Egypt

First Woman Ruler

Some Egyptologists regard Hatshepsut as the greatest female ruler of all time.
As the first woman in recorded history to preside over a nation, Hatshepsut cast aside the theory of male supremacy. This spirited defiance of male dominance endured to the very end, as evidenced by the discovery of her tomb in the Valley of the Kings.
Hatshepsut is credited with promoting both industry and agriculture within Egypt. One of the highlights of her reign was the organization of the first expedition to the land of Punt. From this journey, she brought back a number of riches and a variety of plants that she would adapt to the Egyptian climate.
