It’s important to stress that Black History does NOT start with slavery. As important, is to stress that Africa was a thriving, rich, prosperous civilization before any European interaction and certainly before the Transatlantic Slave Trade. For example, did you know...Africans had explored the America’s long before Columbus? that during Europe's "Dark Ages," three great African empires provided the main advance of human knowledge? That Timbuktu was once of the greatest centers of learning in the world? Did you know…that until the invention of firearms the mighty African warriors of the Sudan were never conquered?
It is important to show the magnificent history and heritage of Africa, destroying, once and for all, the centuries-old, still lingering myth that Africa "was a continent without history."
