Darkwah has DNA on his side; whereas, Diop used archeological artifacts, culture, and documentary text but was still challenged with his findings which were labeled "untrue" by the scientific world. Darkwah proves that Africans wrote the Bible even though your personal Bible may have pages laced with White Greek characters and distributed throughout the world. I thought that the following excerpts were extremely interesting. A website visitor suggested that I read the Darkwah's book. Thanks O. Tucker. Thanks to the website reader who suggested that I limit my research to Sub-Saharan Africa. Youve started a greater quest to delve deeper into Europe's concealment of our history and to shed more light on how the global world exists in its current state. LAND OF THE BLACKSLAND OF THE BIBLE : Ancient Egypt was known indigenously as Kemet (Land of the Blacks). Ancient Egyptians have pinpointed their own ancestral origins to the Mount Rwenzori range in the east African cradle, otherwise known as the Mountains of the Moon. Some accounts state that Egyptian civilization came out of Ethiopia, which as a term was used to designate the land south of Egypt (the Upper Nile Valley), or was alternatively used to refer to the entire African continent. Chronologically therefore Egypts southern neighbor Nubia, which had its own distinct civilization, was her Nile Valley predecessor.

Extractions: Public Justice Report : Christianity and Democracy ConferenceAfrica March/April, 1992 By Kwame Bediako ATLANTA, November 16,1991Today the evidence is beyond doubt that the center of gravity of world Christianity has shifted from the West to the non-Western world. And church statistics indicate that Africa has effectively tipped the balance and transformed Christianity permanently into a non-Western religion. Among many Africans who are now demanding multi-party politics, a serious question exists about the legitimate basiswhether Christian or notfor organized opposition in African politics. Until very recently, governments in many one-party states appealed to the African "consensus mode of decision-making" as the basis for restricting or eliminating political dissent and opposition. Now, however, the widespread clamoring for multi-party politics in African countries constitutes an implicit challenge to the notion that political opposition is somehow un-African. The larger question is whether, in the context of the extended pluralism of political life in modern African nation-states, the traditions and political arrangements that operated in the predominantly homogeneous ethnic societies of the past are capable of rendering adequate service. And this is the point at which Christianity confronts traditional African beliefs. It is well known that African indigenous political arrangements have tended to sacralize authority and its exercise in society. The well-being of society was thought to be dependent on maintaining good relations with departed ancestors. The traditional ruler fulfilled a crucial function as the intermediary between the state and the ancestors. The authority of rulers was thus presumed to be that of the ancestors. Any radical political challenge threatened tradition and custom; it could undermine the very foundations of the identity and continuity of the community itself.

Dancing interweaves with many aspects of life, such as art, communication, belief systems, social relations and political dynamics.

Extractions: British and Boers in South Africa Description de l'Egypte . The significant discovery of the trilingual inscription on the Rosetta Stone facilitated the deciphering of ancient Egyptian hieroglyphics, providing the literary keys to much ancient knowledge. Ten thousand Ottoman soldiers had not been paid and looted Egypt. Amid the breakdown of law and order, British general Hutchinson tried to protect the Mamluk beys after Yusuf Pasha killed and arrested many of them. In the March 1802 Treaty of Amiens the British agreed to withdraw from Egypt by July; but General Stuart did not pull British forces out until March 1803, taking with him Mamluk bey Muhammad Alfi, who had driven people out of Upper Egypt with his excessive taxation. To curtail Mamluk power the Ottoman sultan had decreed that Circassian slave boys were no longer allowed to be imported and sold in Egypt; the beys were assigned to the province of Aswan but were supplied with arms by Stuart. Khusrav Pasha imposed arbitrary taxes despite a weak economy and sent Albanian troops led by Tahir Pasha to pursue the Mamluks in the provinces. When the Albanians returned to Cairo for their pay, Khusrav had his troops fire on them. The Albanians bombarded the viceroy's palace, and Khusrav fled to Damietta.

Extractions: LECTURE IV THE FORGING OF NEW GA-DANGME UNITY AND THE KATAMANSO WAR To lead the Gá-Dangme you need the courage of Okaikoi and the sagacity of great high priests. It is a task in selflessness and courage. In all things be bold and fearless,seeking above all to ensure the security and happiness of the people. Like a good tree the strong nation requires continual pruning and reform. The good leader sleeps not for an hour, constantly seeking the interests of his people In this Lecture we examine the factors that led to the emergence of the Gá-Dangme as major players in the political scene of the Gold Coast; look at the principal reasons for the Katamanso War. Accra started to emerge from its short eclipse; the short reign of Ofori Tibo saw the the re-stabilisation of Gá-Dangme politics. The emergence of Tetteh Ahinakwa or Momotse and Okaidja as King of Accra and chief of Gbese respectively led to a reform movement which tried to cleanse the city of corruption and re-establish its politics on a sounder footing. Princes Tetteh Ahinakwa and Okaidja had been ransomed to the Dutch and had gained considerable Western education; they were therefore in a relatively good position to stand back from Gá society and objectively analyse its failures and difficulties. However, once they acceeded to office they lacked a reform party to carry out their reformist programme in the various Gá-Dangme quarters and towns. Attempts to involve the manbii or citizens were not entirely successful.

Its tropical rain-forest, blends with river valleys and dry Savannah plains, to create 250,000 square km of paradise for the lovers and watchers of nature's wonders. It's no accident that Ghana was once known as the 'Gold Coast,' a name bestowed on it by Portuguese traders who landed there in 1472. The legendary gold deposits of Ashante remain the world's richest and largest. A desire to control this great wealth saw a fierce struggle by European nations for the heart and soul of this land. This period shaped unique traditions, unknown in any other part of Africa. Ghana, for years, has enjoyed a peaceful political environment, with one of Africa's most pragmatic governments. It moves into the new millennium inspired by the legacy of Dr. Kwame Nkrumah, the nation's founder and foremost leader of Pan Africanism. His remains are in a mausoleum not far from the sun baked beaches of Accra, Ghana's capital.
