Africa’s glorious past has been downplayed by the West and they are choosing heroes for us. We must bequeath to the youth, knowledge about Africa’s past. There are those who are fond of saying that we must not dwell on the past. They need to be reminded that to chart the future we must reconcile the past with the present.
Africa is the cradle of humanity and of civilization. The first empire in the world was the ancient Egyptian empire. Before the 1830’s Egyptian civilization was known to be African and brought about by African people. However, with the advent of western imperialism after the 1830’s, all that changed. There are books like Gerald Massey’s Egypt: The light of the World volumes one and two which can shed light on ancient Egyptian influence around the world.
