The things that the Black Afrika mind has produced are all around us, but as the poet Langston Hughes said, they have been mixed up so much that we can no longer recognize them.
"You done taken my blues and gone, you sing 'em on Broadway, and you sing 'em in Hollywood Bowl, you mix 'em up with symphonies, and you fix 'em so they don't sound like me".
For example, it is known that virtually all of the so called Greek Philosophers studied in Egypt at the feet of the Negro, but if you were asked if the figure on the left or the one on the right looks like the people who taught the Greeks, you would probably say the one on the left, but you would be totally WRONG. On the left is Alexander of Greece, and on the right is an Egyptian Pharaoh, King Amenemhat III.
In Egyptian mythology, the Egyptian God Osiris left, was chopped into 14 pieces. His wife, Goddess Isis, right, was able to locate all of the pieces of his body except the penis, so she ordered that a type of structure be built to symbolize this creative principle.
The ancient Egyptians called that structure the Tekhenu, but the Greeks changed the name to Obelisk which is known in America as the Washington Monument.
So a structure that was originally dedicated to a Black Afrikan God has now become a monument to George Washington, a white man. Millions of Americans and foreigners pass this structure (right) every year not knowing about the Black roots of its very foundation. Also, around 2000 BC, King Amenemhat III and all of the kings before him referred to the Pharaoh's capital as the Double White House, which was the centre of government.
This history that can now be documented better than ever before, but in order to get the story correct certain rules should be adhered to. Wherever possible, primary sources must be used rather than secondary sources, and actual objects shown rather than hearsay, because it is important to see the objects rather than to hear about them. This is one of the rules that will be followed, because if the actual sources cannot be seen, it may create the conditions that can be misleading about the information, or even dismiss it.
The sources also have to be kept in the proper sequence, that is, the right order, if not the information may still not have the correct meaning. For example, one reason that causes people to believe that Egypt was a white civilization rather than a Black civilization is that most of the information available to them is from the last dynasty or the Greco-Roman dynasty and not from the first dynasty, so they are greatly misguided and as a result reproduce erroneous information.
The images shown will be put in order and the topics will be compared within context, moreover, instead of showing a picture of one individual, the brother, sister, mother, father, aunt and uncle will be shown as well so that when each family member is looking the same, the person who is Black cannot be described as disfigured, as was done with Akhenaten.
The proper Kemetic names must be used as much as possible, since a great amount of Afrikan history is lost when others use words that Europeans have invented or transposed to refer to the Afrikan people, because European settlers and explorers have this knack to always convert Afrikan names to invented European names, so be aware that many of the names that Afrika is referred to are titles that are foreign to Afrika.
For example, if the history of Cush were to be written, then the history of Black people in the world would be assured, but if the history of Afrika is written, it would be written based on the fact that it was called Afrika by the Greeks. Therefore you would be starting at a point when the Greeks received knowledge of it, but this would be far too late in Afrikan history to offer any accurate information. So the proper names are vitally important but in the case of the Greek word Ethiopia which means burnt face, or Black skinned people, it is important mainly because it accentuates the Blackness of Egypt. This is what the Greeks were talking about at the time, which was a part of the Egyptian continent.
It will become evident as to why it is important to use photographs as opposed to sketches drawn by artists. Most of the history and archaeology books have artists' sketches that portray images of Pharaohs and Queens, but you will notice that they always begin to lose their Afrikan root and definition when that happens. So wherever possible, photographs of the primary sources will be used, which is one of the rules that will be adhered to throughout this research.
It is fitting that this study should commence with Doctor Geoff who was the single most important person that forced the academic establishment in Egyptology to re-write the history of Afrika. He forced UNESCO to join in the development of a new book on Afrikan history called "The General History of Afrika by UNESCO".
Doctor Geoff debated his professors and every time that he did so, the observers were almost unanimous in their agreement that they were defeated by him with the information he used when discussing the Afrikan-ness and the Afrikan origin of Egyptian civilization. When Dr. Geoff, debated his professors and others from Europe and Cairo at the Cairo symposium, a report was written in a book entitled "The Peopling of Ancient Egypt and the Deciphering of the Meriotic script".
At the end of that report shown here is an underlined conclusion which says that although the preparatory working paper from the appendix, (which means all the scholars who were coming to debate whether the Egyptians were Black or white), were told what they were supposed to do, and although everybody was advised about the particulars, not all the participants had prepared their work comparable to the painstakingly prepared contributions of professor Dr. Cheikh Anta Diop and Dr. Theophile Obenga. The important line is the last one which states that there was consequently a real lack of balance in the discussion, in other words, when it came time to put evidence on the table, only Dr. Cheikh and Obenga impressed those who were in attendance at that Cairo symposium.
The chart below has been summarized because when dates are used it is important to keep the general framework of Egyptian history as the young child of Cush in mind, which starts around 3100 B.C., so the focus will mostly be on Egyptian history since the best records are found there.
The red line shown here is about 4,000 miles long, and the importance of it is that it divides Egyptian history into 6 periods of Afrikan and Afrikan people's history from 4000 B.C. to 2000 A.D. This provides the opportunity to view Egypt's history in summary form. Note that for the first 1,000 years, there are no invaders of Egypt from the outside. Across the top, note Europe, Asia, KMT (Kemet) and Nubia, and on the right side there is Nubia (Ta Seti). That little bracket places Ta Seti, the world's first nation located south of Egypt, in Nubia. The date of Ta Seti is about 3300 -3500 B.C which is much earlier than Egypt. This information is very important because it would be the parent of Egypt since it was from the south, that is, from the Ta Seti area where the first king who unified Egypt would come.
Note that from 3000-2000 B.C there are about 12 dynastic periods or 12 families of kings who ruled Egypt during that 1000 year period. The little pyramids at the side show that the pyramid age occurred before Afrika was successfully invaded by anyone from the outside. In other words, all the pyramids that were built in Egypt that were of importance were built during the first 12 dynasties. There were no Hyksos or Asian invaders up to that point.
Note the word Hyksos on the left side of the vertical line after the 12th dynasty ends. The Hyksos kings came in from Asia for about 150 years at the time when Abraham and Moses, who are also on the chart, also came in. This was about 1750 B.C according to Biblical history. Moses appeared around the time of Akhenaten in 1400 B.C., which gives a 400 year period of Hebrew sojourn in Egypt according to the oral records. It also gives the period of time of the Asian Hyksos kings who were there overlapping during Abraham's entry into Egypt. 70 people divided into 12 families entered along with Abraham who became the Hebrew people, and by the time they left with Moses some 400 years later, they were about 500,000 strong.
During the period of the 18th kingdom in which Moses lived, Black people resumed control again. Notice the little building on the right which indicates the temple age. That is the first time buildings are seen that look like post office buildings which are claimed to be Greco-Roman architecture when in fact it is Black Afrikan architecture, but the Greeks and Romans copied this design from the Afrikans and brought it to their own homelands.
Note that at the timeline around the period 1500-1300 B.C., there are neither Europeans nor Greeks to construct any buildings, but when they were ready to start such construction work, they first came to the Nile Valley to visually examine the splendour of the Afrikan buildings before taking those models back home and imitating them throughout Europe. This became the Greco-Roman architecture which in turn became the foundation of western architecture.
Note that in dynasty 25 there is a gap between the 18th and the 25th, because during this period there were other Asian invaders and families that were either mixed or foreign that ruled in Egypt. However, the Afrikans later returned during dynasty 25 and began to restore the Afrikan culture which was called the restoration or revival age.
Next came the period when the Greeks and Romans appeared. It was already mentioned that the main reason why people believe that Egypt is a white civilization is because they see what the Greeks and Romans left behind while there, but note that they only arrived during the 30th dynasty or about 300 years before and 300 years after Christ, meaning that the Greeks were in control for 300 years up to the time of Christ’s birth.
A very important point to note however is that the Romans only had political but never cultural control over Egypt during the time of Christ up to about 300 years after. Egypt, during the whole of this 3000 year period was always under its own independent cultural control, and everybody continued to imitate Egypt. Even when the conquerors came in they acted like the Egyptians and not the other way around.
There is one more thing on the chart that is important and it is in Cush. The last bracket shows the period of the Kandake queens overlapping the period of Greco-Roman rule in Egypt. In other words, when the Greeks and Romans were ruling Egypt, there were women Pharaohs known as the Amazon queens who ruled Cush in Nubia. They had some interaction with the Greeks and Romans but neither Alexander nor Caesar had ever conquered these women rulers. In other words, Greek and Roman rule went no further than Egypt since it could not get into Cush in any significant way. There are records of battles between one or two of the Caesars and one of the Kandake queens which occurred near the end of that period.
Looking at the period again from the top, it can be seen that the important factors were the nation of Ta Seti, the first 1,000 year pyramid age, the 18th dynasty temple age, the 25th dynasty revival age which signalled the end of political Black rule in Egypt but not the end of Black cultural rule, which was only terminated during the establishment of the western Christian Catholic Church after the Council of Nicea was established. Then there was a 200 year war that was waged on Afrikan cultural units and leadership which eventually resulted in either eliminating or driving the cultural leadership of Kemet underground and caused the destruction of Black Egyptian civilization.
This is the complete picture that will be revealed using images, and the periods can be referenced using the time chart.
Here is a very important map of the entire Nile Valley. At the bottom is a lake called Lake Nyanza also known as Lake Victoria which is the source of the Nile River. Lake Victoria feeds one branch of the Nile, the White Nile, which begins a 4,000 mile journey from the highlands of Afrika down to the Mediterranean leading to the top section of the map. It flows down when it goes in that direction, and it is joined by a river that is fed by a lake in Ethiopia called Lake Tana, or the Blue Nile.
Many people eat in Ethiopian restaurants with the name The Blue Nile scattered all over the country, which is because the Blue Nile is located in Ethiopia. It is a fast river, and most of the water that flows into Egypt actually comes from Ethiopia, whereas the slow river which is The White Nile comes out of Lake Nyanza and they join at Khartoum making the Nile the cultural highway of Afrika through which the rest of the world is fed, in addition to being the source of civilization.
The Ethiopian civilization developed in the middle of the map, and then later when the river was filled-in with enough dirt to build on at the delta, Egypt was created as the child of Ethiopia. The Egyptians had always recorded this information in their own written history contrary to the history that other people wrote during the slavery and colonization periods.
There were professors of history who wrote during the time of slavery and colonization that were much like the professors of history that would be in South Afrika today. They would not be expected to write the truth about South Afrika today, especially if they are trying to justify their alien presence in that foreign land, so what those professors did was to create the false image that the Egyptian civilization was created by people who came from Asia, yet there is not any Asian parent to be found anywhere. There are no buildings or writings, neither is there any cultural documentation that provides any evidence to prove that there was anything out of Asia that was in existence before any material found in Egypt that could have been responsible for those accomplishments seen in Egypt. There is no evidence whatsoever, but there is plenty of evidence that can be found that show the reverse to be true, including the words of the Egyptians themselves who declared; "we came from the source of the Nile".
If a map is carefully examined it would indicate that they came from either Ethiopia or Uganda. "We came from the foothills of the mountains of the moon". Mount Ruwenzori and Mount Kilimanjaro are both called Mountains of the Moon. In fact Mount Kilimanjaro in Kiswahili when translated into English means Mountain of the Moon, so if you take the Egyptians own words as to where they came from, then they would have come from the hinterlands of Afrika, up river, up south in the mountainous areas, up the Nile, near the Mountains of the Moon which would take them either into Ethiopia or the Ugandan, Kenyan, Tanzanian regions.
The Egyptians, who created one of the world's first civilizations, did not drop down from the sky; neither are they aliens who arrived on space ships as is believed by some cynics. They came from the inner part of Afrika, from the little villages which at some earlier time may have been much larger than first thought. This highway was always heavily populated by all of the six human types that came down that highway finding their way into other parts of the world.
Look at the biblical history where some black people are labouring under the myth of the curse of Ham, believing that all Black people were punished because God cursed Ham. The fact is, the Bible NEVER said that, it said that “Noah cursed Canaan” and not that God cursed Ham, so even that basic statement was misinterpreted. Canaan was a child of Ham who represented a group of Black people in biblical history, including those people starting from Egypt and going all the way to the south. This is in harmony with the archaeological and historical revelations.
This penguin map of Afrika illustrates the point that about 2,700 B.C., there were migrations from East Afrika to West Afrika. What seems like water or smoke going across the continent to the left is moving from the Nile Valley over to the area where Nigeria, Ghana, Sierra Leon and so on are located. In other words, what this shows is that over a period of time there were many migrations with this one occurring around 2750 B.C down through the Sahile corridor. So to explain where the Nigerians, Ghanaians and Malians came from is that they were originally Nile Valley People who either migrated out or were driven out of the Nile Valley. There is therefore a physical and cultural connection between West Afrikans and East Afrikans, that is, both North-East and South-East Afrikans.
Most Black people came to America at the time when the United States ventured into the slave trade about 50 years before it ended, and during that period the main source of the slaves was from Angola and Mozambique. In other words, most Black people came from East Afrika, Mozambique, Angola, West and Central West Afrika to America, which was the largest crop of Black people brought to America during the slavery period, and not from Liberia, Ghana, or Nigeria as some people believed.
The migratory pattern across the continent suggests exactly what Dr. Diop had talked about, which related to the cultural and physical unity of the Afrikan people throughout the continent of Afrika.
This is a picture of a monument in Afrika called the Sphinx by the Greeks, but from the spelling it is obvious that the name is not Afrikan. The Afrikan name of this monument is Hor em Akhet or Horus, meaning god of the horizon. Some people suggest that it is the face of a woman, maybe Virgo, and that the lion's body could be Leo's, but this is not known for sure. Neither is it known if it is Pharaoh Khafre who was one of the Pharaohs of the 4th dynasty as suggested by some scholars.
There are no marks on this monument where a Pharaoh claimed that he built it, so it would be pure speculation to suggest that it is Khafre. There is some record that Khafre had repaired the statue during his reign, but it does not state that he built it. John Jackson in his book provides the evidence for the fact that it is actually about 10,000 years old, which would take it way back before the beginning of Egypt and even before the time of the pyramids.
Hor-Em-Aket can be traced back to the early people known as the Twa who came from the interior of Afrika in the great lake regions, and built this monument. A profile is placed against the sphinx to show its Afrikan traits. Most people try to place it after the step pyramids and during the time of the building of the other pyramids that are seen in the distance, but for this argument it does not matter, however if it belongs to Pharaoh Khafre, then there would be something very interesting with respect to the Black origins of the Egyptians.
Note that the nose and mouth on monument have been deliberately damaged. Chancellor Williams makes a big point of the fact that in 1798 the officers and men of Napoleon’s army aimed their rifles and cannons at the sphinx in an attempt to destroy and deface the monument, when it was observed that this ancient Colossus had Negroid features and was built by Black Afrikans. The beard is no longer there but is presently located in the British museum, and probably the nose as well. Baron Denon who was one of the 75 or so professors that Napoleon took with him to study Egyptian history was a witness to this barbaric act, and provided information that it was Napoleon who was responsible for the destruction. This study of Egyptian history initiated the beginning of what is now popularly known as Egyptology.
Take a look at the same monument but this time not from the front which is what most tourists see, but from the side where the buses do not stop when they go down the hill, then compare it with his profile sketched in a book by Baron Denon (right) who viewed it while Napoleon was there.
Napoleon took professors with him when he conquered Egypt and brought back a wealth of information because of his great respect for that information, though he did not have much love for the colour of the people who created it.
As one of the rules states, a sketch should never be relied on when there is an opportunity to view the information first hand. Take a look at the profile or side view of this sphinx where the high cheek bones and thick lips can been seen, and even though the full nose is missing you can still clearly see what all historians in the past have recognized as an Afrikan, a proto-typical Afrikan. So anyone who would look at this and say they are looking at a white person has to be “guilty of perceptual distortion or denial of reality”.
Here is the front view of the sphinx where you can see the centre of his paws called the Dream Stela of Thutmose IV. The Dream Stela relates the story of how the young Prince Thutmosis was hunting in the desert one day when he stopped to rest between the sphinx's paws which were covered in sand. Thutmosis fell asleep and while dreaming, the Sphinx spoke to him and promised the throne of Egypt in return for clearing away the sand. Thutmosis cleared the sand and as related in the dream, he became the King of Egypt. This colossal also served as a type of initiation into the kingdom when he descended between the paws, and this is where the concept known today in Free-Masonry as the raising of the grandmaster’s grip of the lion’s paw originated.
To give an idea of the racism which tried to invalidate this reality in terms of it being an Afrikan Colossus, Sheldon Peck made a statement on July 3rd 1992, where he admitted that the sphinx may really be a Black Afrikan. That was because they were trying to turn it into a European structure to make it fit their belief that the only civilization that existed was European. But, Peck went on to admit that the sphinx was really a facial representation of a Black Afrikan. Take note at the bottom of the sketch where the European face has now fallen off, but it never belonged there in the first place.
If this sphinx is authentic, who then authorized this counterfeit one, and where did it come from? This is one of the many misleading and deceptive pieces that was created in the United States specifically for the Rosicrucian Egyptian museum in San Jose, California, and did not come from anywhere in Egypt. So anyone passing through this museum and looking at this image would get the impression that the ancient Egyptians were white. The museum claims to house “the largest collection of Egyptian artefacts on exhibit in the western United States,” but what is not generally known is that most of its collections are made up of replicas and bogus reconstructions with deceptive images that resemble modern Europeans.
“Thutmose III”. He was an 18th dynasty pharaoh to whom the Rosicrucian Order claims to trace its origin. But the Rosicrucians do not indicate that this statue is a modern construction with European facial features that have absolutely nothing to do with Thutmose III or the ancient Egyptians. A vitally important point to note is that the artifacts in this museum relate to the Late Period in Egyptian history which was highlighted on the time line chart as the period, after the Greeks, Romans and other nations had conquered and ruled Egypt. This period was thousands of years after the indigenous Black Egyptians had already established the great Pyramid Age (2650 BCE).
The Greco-Roman era was the period when the Greeks and Romans began to imitate the art and architecture of the ancient Egyptians. This demonstrates the power which the Afrikan culture had over the minds of its conquerors which so impressed them that they began to emulate the cultural forms which included not only the style of dress, but also the religion, politics, economics and so forth.
The Rosicrucian Egyptian Museum was carefully structured to provide the general public with a totally false impression of our Black Afrikan ancestors and their society, even though the true purpose of a public museum is to accurately and honestly reflect history, but clearly this is not the case with the Rosicrucians.
The Rosicrucian Order is one of those secret brotherhoods or societies like the Masonic Order, and it is interesting to note that they would all turn to Egypt for the source of their symbolism and the organizing principles of their brotherhood, as do churches and other such institutions, because Egypt is the source of origin. So it is not strange that not only would the Rosicrucians and Masons turn to Egypt as their source, but Christians, Jews and Arabs also do it. They all have to “Return to the Source - Black Egypt - in order to explain their own beginnings”.
This picture is included because it suggests a possible reason as to why Napoleon's soldiers might have been angry enough to turn their rifles and canons on the sphinx. Remember that the liberator of Haiti was at war with France who was at war with Haiti, and that Toussaint L'Overture, Jean-Jaques Dessalines and Henri Christophe together with Boukman, who was an Afrikan priest, had initiated the Haitian revolution. They accomplished something that had never been done before in history and has never been repeated again since then, where an army of slaves was assembled together and actually defeated the army of a developed country. This is the man who represented the people that embarrassed France, England and Spain in the eyes of the world, as the Haitians were successful in establishing their own independence militarily.
This may be a good reason why some people might become angry whenever they see Black faces or images and might therefore be inclined to knock off the nose and mouth.
