“What became of the Black people of Sumer?” the traveller asked the old man, “For ancient records show that the people of Sumer were black what happened to them? “AH,” the old man sighed, “They lost their history, so they died.”
To every African, those in the mother Land and those in Diaspora, never forget your History, for that is how the enemy is trying to destroy you, that is why the enemy removed the nose on the Egyptian statues, in the Great Sphinx of Giza that is why at school he teaches you French and English empires, that is why Shaka Zulu was not seen as nation builder, he tried to destroy the Great wall of Zimbabwe, that is why museums in Africa don’t have African history, that is why he misinterpreted our History, that is why he claimed your history as his. Wake up!
To the Diaspora in America know that before a Columbus was born in the 1310, 1311 A.D Your Ancestors had built Voyages, and were in America before Columbus. These were the Mandinga
The Black Guanini were black merchants that that came from Hispaniola, Guanini implied the “Golden Tribe.” Black Marchents who trafficked in Gold.
Your Ancestors were the first to create maps around the ocean, in 1448 a map, the map had writings, “ixola otinticha xe longa aponente 1500 mia.” This translates to “Authentic Island is distant 1500 miles to the west. Which is the west of Cape’ Verde point of upper Guinea coast, the map also shows the northeast corner of Brazil this is the same map the Portuguese used to in Brazil in 1448. THE MAP CAN BE FOUND OF AFRICAN CIVILISATION (VOL8, NO 2.)
Columbus himself knew he wasn’t the first immigrant in America, Columbus in his journal of the second voyage, when he was in Haiti, the Native Americans told them that black skinned people had come from the South East in Boats, trading in Gold tipped metal spears. It is recorded in the Raccolta, Parte 1, Volume 1, (John Boyd Thacher, 1903). Ferdinand son of Columbus, who wrote a book on his father, writes his father told him he had seen Negroes in the north of Honduras.
“We have to make our people aware of these things and to be inspired by them. Not to be inspired by mere hollow chauvinistic boasts, but inspired by a genuine awareness of achievement, so they can emulate that achievement. So their children do not have to feel they only half-belong to the world. . . . People of African descent should become very much aware of what is going on. Very much aware of these developments, of this record of achievement. It is affecting us profoundly. It’s not only the ignorance of this that is making people despise us, push us aside and treat us as second-class citizens, but our ignorance of it makes us also treat ourselves in a certain way. It has affected the way we approach everything.” [Egypt Child Of Africa,: p. 457] Dr Ivan van Sertima
Looking back at our History, we must learn those parts we were weak and vulnerable, was our lack of unity caused by our migrations, which is the reason we have so many tribes, the fact that a group of people would migrate to another place and form a tribe, far from the original group and would have little to no communication, was our downfall as the colonists would attack a tribe without another tribe helping it out, Let it be the last time that happens, My point here is that those in the Diaspora should not be quiet when Imperialists from America and France and Britain exploit their people, when they exploit your continent. We all have a common enemy, we are one people, we are Africans, let us unite against the injustices to our people, no matter where we!
Do not be alarmed by yourselves when you produce great minds such as Ivan Sertmia and John Henry Clarcke, for you are decedents of great thinkers who built the first universities that taught many races in Egypt and Timbuktu. Even away from home know that your ancestors were there before the british and left Great Art for you to reference Black Greatness in America.
The strength in our history has always been measured by our ability to face of what at times seemed to be all the forces of hell, we fought through to survive it all and rebuilt kingdoms and Empires some of which endured for a thousand years. Africa will again be world leaders, Colonisation and Imperialism will not define the African race, our decedents will be inventors like Imhotep, they will be as wealthy as Mensa Musa, They will rule like Ramses the Great, and Our women will lead like Cleopatra and Queen Candace. We will build an Empire as Beautiful as Mapungubwe and Great Zimbabwe.
We have rebuilt fallen empires before, and we will rebuild again!
Our race is a Glorious Race, and anytime we put our mind to something we exceed than those oppressive races, we were the first explorers, America’s first immigrant, first writings, first miners, Democracy, science, maths, Art, are your creations! First Gold miners, created numbers!
Let us unite and create something the world will wonder,
“Black Man, You are on your own!” Steve Biko. UNITE!
“Black Man You are Great!“ Vhuhwavho Dzhivhuho
This Generation is destined to do Historic Deeds!
Hail United States of Africa!
