EXOTIC AFRICA


How much do you know about ANCIENT BLACK HISTORY

... ancient Egypt and other civilizations ?


Negroes  (Black people)  were the first human race on earth, and most of their customs and traditions were adopted by the people of ancient Kemet, Kush, Nubia and Egyptians.  Ancient Egyptians (Nubians) referred to their land as Kemet.  The word "kemet" means Black--- or land of the Black people.   Some religious scholars claim  that descendants of the HEBREW KING SOLOMON settled in Ethiopia.



  "A climate of alienation has a profound effect upon the Black personality. Often the effect is so crushing that some Black people who have evidence of the truth, still find it hard to accept the fact that (Negroes) Blacks really were the first to civilize the world."

                     ~Quote from Cheikh Anta Diop (historian and author)

 Scientists have found the oldest  human bones and remains in the land now known as Africa.  

Africa is not a country. It is a continent like Europe or America -- so it must be realized that in it will lie as many various styles as in our Western continents too. The "Motherland" has been home to many advanced, exotic civilizations. Many have been buried beneath the sands of time, but we know of others, and archaeologists continue to uncover more clues about ancient African civilizations.

 

Modern Africa is a mixture of beautiful cities, awesome nature scenes, cultural diversity, and poverty.

Free Report: BLACK HISTORY PRIOR TO 1492---

Contrary to popular belief,  Africa was a highly developed continent
at one time.  People in Africa worked at making tools, art, music,
leatherworks, and iron.  Some of them specialized in running
businesses that sold and exchanged salt, books, jewels, clothing,
gold, cattle, medicines, and cotton.

Africa was a highly developed land for its time prior to the
onslaught of the European invasion and the Trans-Atlantic Slave trade.



Three great African Empires arose in West Africa between

500 and 1600 AD---they were:  Ghana, Mali, and Songhai.

There were at least 15 major kingdoms on the African continent prior
to the 1500's.   Some of these great kingdoms included:

* Ashanti Kingdom --(1695-1901)
* Kingdom of Mali--(1200-1500)
* Songhai Empire --(1464-1591  
* Kingdom of Cush--(1000 BC - 350 AD)

Nubia lies immediately south of Egypt in what today is modern Sudan.



Timbuktu rose to its highest level of development during the Songhai
Empire between 1493 and 1529, under Askia Muhammad.  During this
time, the University of Timbuktu produced more than forty books---on
subjects such as:  THEOLOGY, MATHEMATICS, LOGIC, etc.

The Ghana Empire was founded along the Niger River between the 3rd
and 5th Centuries.  These people had developed an economy that
comprised manufacturing, agriculture, and trade.  It has been written
by historians that Ghana's gold was so abundant that the king's dogs
wore gold collars.

The AFRICAN continent is surrounded by the Mediterranean Sea to the north, the Suez Canal and the Red Sea to the northeast, the Indian Ocean to the southeast, and the Atlantic Ocean to the west. There are 53 countries, including Madagascar and various island groups, associated with the continent.

A ground-breaking book:  The Orion Mystery  by  R. Bauval and A. Gilbert, helps explain many of the mysteries of the pyramid.  With great mathematical and astronomical precision, those pyramids were created to serve as ďgatewaysĒ to the stars. Almost by accident, Bauval stumbled upon the ancientís preoccupation with the constellation of OrionÖ.as their symbol of hoped-for eternal life.

ANCIENT WISDOM FROM NUBIA...

 

MaŠt is ethical principles collectively embracing the values of truth, justice, harmony, balance, cosmological order, reciprocity and propriety.
                                   
Personified as a goddess, MaŠt is depicted as a woman wearing an ostrich feather on her head, a symbol of the principles she represents. Controlling the movement of the stars and the seasonal flooding of the Nile River, MaŠt also had codes of tradition and customs.
 
 For all Egyptians to live in a happy, prosperous and peaceful environment, they had to live within the order established by MaŠt.

Kalimbas have played a part in African culture for 800 years. After work in the evening, Africans sit in a circle, tell beautiful stories, sing and play kalimba. They are also used to pass the time on long journeys on foot.

The kalimba (also called mbira, likembe or thumb piano) is a plucked idiophone unique to Africa and widely distributed throughout the continent. It is commonly played as an accompaniment to song, but in some areas it is used for purely instrumental music.

 

                  

 

 

Africa may be called the 'Drum Continent' because nowhere else in the world has a greater range or number of drums. Africa was the continent which saw the emergence of man and probably the beginning of music itself.

 

The use of talking drums is a fine example of music throughout Africa Many forms of music have developed from the original style of the African drumming.  Calypso is one of the earliest authentic West Indian Art forms.  It is rooted in African Oral Tradition,  in which songs of praise or derision were sung as a form of pointed social comment.

... mainly worn for ceremonial events and special occasions.

OPPRESSION AND RACISM EFFECTS THE AFRICAN CONTINENT TOO....

                        

HYPOCRITICAL AMERICAN POLICIES:


HAS THE USA ALWAYS STOOD FOR THIS "DEMOCRACY"
THAT PRES. BUSH CLAIMS IS SO DESPERATELY
NEEDED IN IRAQ
AND OTHER COUNTRIES IN ORDER FOR US TO BE SAFE?


If you are over 35 years of age, you probably are well aware of
some of the horrible things that transpired under the system of
APARTHEID in South Africa.  Nelson Mandela was a 'freedom fighter'
who was jailed for many years under that white racist regime
because he stood for 'equal rights.'

And if you are not very familiar with that situation, perhaps
you can avail yourself of the opportunity to see some movies
about it..."Sarafina" is one good one. "Biko" is another--about
the life of the Black freedom fighter Steven Biko.

Some of the most horrible acts of torture, brutality and murder
happened in South Africa when the Whites ran that place.  The
regime that upheld APARTHEID...believed and practiced --that
Black and non-White people were unequal, inferior, and 2nd class
citizens.  In fact,  Black people under that system had very few
privileges and NO Civil Rights.

The U.S.A. was not very concerned about this horrible system
at all.  In fact,  many major U.S. companies had operations there
in the APARTHEID system,  earning huge profits and likewise
practicing racial segregation.

The U.S. Presidents (of both parties) allowed APARTHEID to persist
and they did not "invade" that country to give anyone democracy.

It was not until many Black leaders,  activists in So. Africa,
and other forces came to bear that APARTHEID was overthrown.

Yes, Saddam Hussein was a crazy dictator.  We all know that.
However,  his actions seem like Kindergarten capers compared to
what occured on a regular basis in South Africa.

NO...no other country came to the military or social aid of the
victims of South African Apartheid.  The U.S. did not invade or
send troops or anything of that nature.

As we watch the events surrounding the War in Iraq...
 it appears
grossly hypocritical that our politicians are so
"concerned"
over that situation, when they did virtually nothing to help
Nelson Mandela or to over-throw the tyrants in So. Africa.

No, the USA was not instrumental in helping overthrow that
horrible White Supremacist government.  And the politicians
in the U.S. did nothing that comes close to the actions that
they have taken in Iraq.

So, all this talk about how the U.S. had to go into Iraq
"in order to make us safe and to fight terrorist..."
just does not hold much water.

Africa is the world's second-largest and second most-populous continent, after Asia.
