Africans civilized Europe, when we called ourselves Moors. The Greeks received their formal education in Africa.

The African Imhotep was practicing medicine and writing on the subject 2,200 years before the Hippocrates, the so called Father of Modern Medicine, was even born. The Greeks had no problem in stating their knowledge originated from an African origin. When Socrates wrote of his studies in the book Busirus, he said that “I studied philosophy and medicine in Egypt.” He did not study these subjects in Greece in Europe, but in Egypt in Africa. And most inventions that revolutionized the world were either invented by or were inspired by an earlier invention by Black person.

When slavery was officially abolished in the U.S in 1865. Beginning just a mere 5 years later from 1870 through 1940 African Americans filed 726 invention patents. This is extraordinary especially so closely following slavery. African Americans invented all kinds of things in this period – an elevator, rotary engines, motor, a tapered golf tee, a dough kneader, a telephone system, a fertilizer distributor and a bunch of other things.In spite of cultural traumas wrought by the injustices of white racism, and slavery, most inventions that revolutionized the world were either invented by a Black person or was inspired by an earlier invention by a Black person.

When a well-packaged web of lies has been sold gradually to the masses over generations, the truth will seem utterly preposterous and its speaker a raving lunatic.” -Dresden James.


The following facts are all easily verifiable.

If you enjoy using the internet thank

Philip Emeagwali, a Nigerian computer scientist, is regarded by many as being the father of the Internet. He invented the super computer in 1987. It was his formula that used 65,000 separate computer processors to perform 3.1 billion calculations per second in 1989. That feat led to computer scientists comprehending the capabilities of supercomputers and the practical applications of creating a system that allowed multiple computers to communicate. Philip Emeagwali also invented the accurate weather forecasting system in 1990. He also used his mathematical and computer expertise to develop methods for extracting more petroleum from oil fields.

If you enjoy sending emails thank a African American name Emmit McHenry. McHenry created a complex computer code whereby ordinary people can now surf the web or have e-mails without studying computer science. He created what we know today simply as .com.

If you enjoy your digital cellphone thank an African American name Jesse Eugene Russell. He is an inventor and electrical engineer that invented digital cellular technology. He pioneered the field of digital cellular communication in the 1980s through the use of high power linear amplification and low bit rate voice encoding technologies and received a patent in 1992 (US patent #5,084,869) for digital cellular base station design. Jesse Russell holds several patents and is a key person to the invention of the modern cell phone.

If you enjoy using your PC monitor thank an African American named Dr. Mark Dean. Dean is the Inventor/Computer scientist and engineer responsible for developing a number of landmark technologies, including the modern color PC monitor, the Industry Standard in 1981. In 1999, Dean also led a team of programmers to develop one of the stepping stones of modern day computer technology— the first gigahertz chip. The CMOS microprocessor chip is remarkable because it processed a billion calculations and large amounts of data in a second. Dean hold 20 individual patents.

If you enjoy using your GPS thank Gladys Mae West – an African American mathematician known for her contributions to the mathematical modeling of the shape of the Earth, and her work on the development of the satellite geodesy models that were eventually incorporated into the Global Positioning System (GPS).

Without Black people there would not exist skyscrapers. This is because Black people invented the elevator, the air conditioning, and central heating.

Alexander Miles invented the Elevator, Fredrick Jones invented the air condition, and Alice Parker, a Black woman, invented the heating furnace in 1919 which provided central heating.

Without Black people there wouldn’t be any cars.

They teach you the lie that Henry Ford invented the first automobile. It was actually an African American family – the C.R. Paterson and Sons co. – that invented the first automobile.

The C.R Patterson & son’s company starting out as a carriage building firm in 1873. The founder of the company, Charles Richard Patterson was born into slavery in 1833 on a plantation in Virginia. After working as a blacksmith for the carriage building business, Dines & Simpson, Patterson decided to go into business for himself.

In 1873, he created his own carriage building business. In the early 1900’s Patterson and his son converted the company from a carriage business to a automobile manufacturer. They logically nicknamed the first automobile the horseless carriage. It was released in 1905 and sold for $850. It had a four-cylinder Continental engine. C.R Patterson began making automobiles before Henry Ford and his automobiles were considered more sophisticated. C.R. Patterson and Sons were forced out of business by Henry Ford. In 1939, the company closed its big wooden doors. These are all facts that white historians have concealed.

Here’s a fact that might surprise you:

They teach us that Thomas Edison lit up the world. The true inventor that lit up the world was an African American named Lewis Latimer.

Here are the facts: After Thomas Edison patent lightbulb no companies purchased nor mass produced it. This is because it deemed not efficient enough. It lit very dimly and lasted only a few minutes. The inventor whose lightbulb was purchased, mass produced, and its inventor dispatched around the world to oversee its installation was an African American name Lewis Latimer. Therefore in reality the true narrative is that it was actually a Black man that lit up the entire world.

Did you know that a Black inventor holds the patent for the telephone? The patent number is 509065.

In 1887, Granville T. Woods of Cincinnati, a Black inventor, patented the telephone. The patent #509065. For a while he manufactured and sold his inventions through the Woods Electric Company, but he later sold his patent rights to the General Electric Company.

For African Americans to go from slavery to reach to the point and that most inventions that revolutionized the world were either invented by an African American or inspired by an invention by an African American is extremely extraordinary.

There’s More:

Do you know that the world’s first successful open heart surgery was performed by an African American surgeon within an African American own hospital/nursing school?

Dr. Daniel Hale Williams

(1856-1931) founded Provident Hospital and Training School for Nurses (the first black-owned hospital in America) in 1891.

And he performed the first successful open heart surgery in 1893. Following the surgery white surgeons from around the country and the world came to learn from Dr Williams. Many white surgeon had attempted the surgery early but their patients died.

In 1940, Dr. Charles Drew, another African American doctor achieved yet another medical pioneering break through. He invented blood plasma. And, just like Dr. Williams had experienced much earlier, white doctors traveled from around the world to learn from Dr. Drew. Dr. Drew was asked by white government officials to established blood banks around the world.

Most African Americans have never heard any of their true great narratives. This suppression of positive Black narratives from African Americans is too widespread to be unintentional. There’s a deliberate effort to keep African Americans believing the fraudulent worst about themselves. Doing so is necessary for maintaining the U.S. white dominance.

The world would look totally different had it not been for Black inventors. Black people have enriched nearly every aspect of the white world through our many inventions. This reality is concealed by the fact that the white society routinely places white faces in front of inventions by Black people. Because it’s the white society deciding which Black narratives to make public, they’ve manipulated millions to believe that Black people’s main talents are limited to being rappers and athletes. Rarely if ever are African Americans recognized for the extraordinary intellectual feats.

Given these facts, the question therefore logically becomes how does oppressors maintain the dominance over a greater people? By taking control of all narratives about the greater people and negatively distorting them all. Thus making the greater people believing they’re the lesser ones.

If you make a man feel that he is inferior, you do not have to compel him to accept an inferior status, for he will seek it himself.”— Dr. Carter G. Woodson in his book;” the Miseducation of the Negro.”


The basic tool for the manipulation of reality is to control all of the narratives. Because the white society controls all societal narratives, they therefore literally owns the interpretation of reality. By constantly feeding into our society false narratives exalting themselves and marginalizing Black people they’ve created a distorted version of reality that of wherein which they exceed Black people at virtually everything.


Millions of Black students have been miseducated by the white society to believe that before the arrival of Europeans, that Africa was uncivilized and illiterate – and therefore has no significant nor written history. This is totally untrue.

They teach you that the father of medicine was a Greek named Hippocrates. The true father of medicine was an African named Imhotep. Imhotep was practicing medicine and writing on the subject 2,200 years before Hippocrates, the Father of Modern Medicine, was born. He is generally considered the author of the Edwin Smith Papyrus, an Egyptian medical text, which contains almost 100 anatomical terms and describes 48 injuries and their treatment.

1. The Timbuktu University (in Mali, Africa) and its library are older than any of those found within the Western world. It was composed of three schools, namely the Masajid of Djinguereber, the Masajid of Sidi Yahya, and the Masajid of Sankore. During the 12th century, the university had an enrollment of around 25,000 students from Africa. In Timbuktu, there are about 700,000 surviving books. They are written in Mande, Suqi, Fulani, Timbuctu, and Sudani. The contents of the manuscripts include math, medicine, poetry, law and astronomy. This work was the first encyclopedia in the 14th century before the Europeans got the idea later in the 18th century, 4 centuries later.

During the 14th century the city Timbuktu in West Africa was five times bigger than the city of London, and was the richest city in the world. The Mali empire lived on under the rule of the richest man ever in the history of humanity, Mansa Musa, emperor of the 14th century Mali Empire which covered modern day Mali, Senegal, Gambia, and Guinea.

When Mansa Musa went on a pilgrimage to Mecca in 1324, he carried so much gold, and spent them so lavishly that the price of gold fell for ten years. 60 000 people accompanied him. He founded the library of Timbuktu, and the famous manuscripts of Timbuktu which cover all areas of world knowledge were written during his reign.

Witnesses of the greatness of the Mali empire came from all part of the world. “Sergio Domian, an Italian art and architecture scholar, wrote the following about this period: ‘Thus was laid the foundation of an urban civilisation. At the height of its power, Mali had at least 400 cities, and the interior of the Niger Delta was very densely populated.’ At the time of his death in 1331, Mansa Musa was worth the equivalent of 400 billion dollars. At that time Mali Empire was producing more than half the world’s supply of salt and gold.

2. Africa’s Great Wall of Benin was larger than the Great Wall China.

There exist in Africa within the mediaeval Nigerian city of Benin the ruins of a Great Wall four time larger than the Great Wall of China.

The Great Wall of Benin in Edo state Nigeria was the largest man made structure in the history of the world. The walls are four times longer than the Great Wall of China and consumed 100 times more materials than the pyramid of Giza. The walls extended for some 16,000 kilometers in all and covered a space of 6,500 square miles. It is estimated that it took over 150 million hours of digging to construct and were all built by the Edo people.

In all, they are four times longer than the Great Wall of China, and consumed a hundred times more material than the Great Pyramid of Cheops. It’s perhaps the largest single archaeological phenomenon on the planet.” Source: Wikipedia, Architecture of Africa.” Fred Pearce the New Scientist 11/09/99.

Even before the full extent of the city walling had become apparent the Guinness Book of Records carried an entry in the 1974 edition that described the city as: “The largest earthworks in the world carried out prior to the mechanical era.” – Excerpt from “The Invisible Empire”, PD Lawton, African Historical Ruins.

Sadly, in 1897, Benin City and its Great Wall was destroyed by British forces under Admiral Harry Rawson – in what has come to be called the Punitive expedition. The city was looted, blown up and burnt to the ground. This expedition destroyed about 1,100 years of Benin history and one of the evidence of African civilization. The expeditionary force was made up of 1,200 British soldiers.

It brought an end to the great Benin Kingdom and led to the looting numerous Benin historical artefacts. A collection of the famous Benin Bronzes are now in the British Museum in London. Part of the 700 stolen bronzes by the British troops were sold back to Nigeria in 1972.

4. Great Zimbabwe:

Great Zimbabwe is an ancient city in the south-eastern hills of Zimbabwe near Lake Mutirikwe and the town of Masvingo – originally called the Shona civilization. The stone city spans an area of 7.22 square kilometres (2.79 square miles) which, at its peak, could have housed up to 18,000 people. It is recognised as a World Heritage site by UNESCO.

These gigantic brick buildings and walls were erected nearly 2000 years ago. Yet Black students are taught to believe that 500 years ago when the Europeans arrived Africans were uncivilized.

5. The Ishango Mathematic Tool.

( Africa is the craddle of mathematics.)

The Ishango Mathematic tool is the world’s oldest mathematical tool. It was invented by Africans dating as far back as 22000 years ago, in the Upper Paleolithic era. The Ishango tool is the oldest attestation of the practice of arithmetic in human history. It is the first evidence of a calculator in the world.

Named after the place where it was found in the Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC), the Ishango tool is a dark brown bone which happens to be the fibula of a baboon, with a sharp piece of quartz affixed to one end for engraving. The Ishango tools are 10 to 14 cm long, with several incisions on each faces.

The left column can be divided in 4 groups, with each group possessing 19, 17, 13, and 11 notches. The sum of these being 60. Those are the 4 successive prime numbers between 10 and 20. This constitutes a quad of prime numbers.

The central column is divided in groups of 8. By an approximate count, one can find (in the parenthesis, is the maximum number): 7 (8), 5 (7), 5 (9), 10, 8 (14), 4 (6), 6, 3. The minimal sum is 48, while the maximal sum is 63.

The right column is divided into 4 groups, where each group has 9, 19, 21, and 11 notches. The sum of these 4 numbers is 60.

The second bone has not been well-studied. However, we know that it is composed of 6 groups of 20, 6, 18, 6, 20, and 8 notches.

All said, it is amazing to realize that there were mathematicians 20,000 years ago on the African continent. Africa is the craddle of mathematics. It is so great to realize that our Ancient ancestors, were actually brilliant scientists playing with prime numbers. Whether it was a woman calculating her menstrual cycle, or some brilliant tribe astronomer, it feels so good to know that the paleo-mathematicians of Ishango already knew prime numbers. They were a great civilization long before the pharaohs of Egypt.

6. Lebombo Mathematical Tool

There was discovered a mathematical tool found in Africa named the Lebombo Tool that’s even older than the Ishango bone.

Lebombo Tool is indeed the oldest known mathematical artifact in the world. Discovered in the 1970s in Border Cave, a rock shelter on the western scarp of the Lebombo Mountains in an area near the border of South Africa and Swaziland (now Eswatini).

7. Ancient Egypt also proves that Africans were not illiterate and uncivilized.

Because ancient Egypt clearly refutes the white society’s false narrative that Africans were illiterate and uncivilized, and because they could not conceal Egypt’s great monuments, white historians instead started a misinformation propaganda campaign about Egypt. The propaganda campaign’s objective was to make people believe that Egypt was not located within Africa and that the ancient weren’t Africans.

Although Egypt is located within African, and although all of its Pyramids, and the Great Sphinx, were built by Africans thousands of years long before the Arabs and Greeks arrived there in the 7th century, and although the tombs are filled with countless evidence proving that the ancient Egyptians were Black, white historians nonetheless propagated the false narrative that the ancient Egyptians were Europeans.


Do you know that there exist substantial proof that the Great Sphinx of Giza is a sculpted head of an Black person?

There exist a reputable historian’s eye witness account, written testimony and an artist rendering proving that the Great Sphinxs is a sculpted head of an African Man? These are the types of evidence that a person might take to court to win their case. However the system of white supremacy has always suppressed all evidence that contradicts the myth of white superiority and falsehood of Black inferiority. This includes hiding all evidence that the Sphinx is the sculpted head of a Black African.

Most of us have heard the story that when Napoleon’s army arrive in Egypt on July 1 1798, he ordered that cannons be used to deface the Negroid face of the Great Sphinx of Giza. However most people are not aware that there does exist substantial evidence proving that the face of the Sphinx was in fact an African Negroid man before it was defaced.

During the French invasion into Egyptian Napoleon was accompanied by a French diplomat, author, archaeologist and artist named Dominique Vivant Baron Denon.

Before the defacing of the Sphinx, Baron Denon asked Napoleon to allow him to first draw an illustration of the massive Sphinx of Giza before its face was destroyed. Napoleon agreed to the request and allowed Denon to draw a picture of the Sphinx before its defacement.

Soon after Vivant’s sketch was complete Napoleon ordered the nose and lips shot off the Sphinx! Napoleon’s objective for defacing the Sphinx was to remove the negro features. However the true features of the Sphinx survived in the Vivant Denon drawing. This attached drawing of the Sphinx’s is a true copy of that original sketch drawn by Denon. It’s given signed completion date is July 1 1798. This date affirms that it was drawn shortly after the French invasion into Egypt. Vivant clearly captured the facial features of the Sphinx and they are clearly Negroid as stated by the eye witness Herodotus. The drawing shows that the Sphinx’s features were clearly that of a Negroid African before it was damaged. Seeing the Sphinx with distinct negroid features also establishes that the ancient Egyptians were in fact a black culture.

This drawing was later published in the 1803 in an issue of Universal Magazine. Vivant Denon described the Sphinx as an African woman.

Here is also the written account about the Sphinx of Giza in Denon’s own words:

“…Though its proportions are colossal, the outline is pure and graceful; the expression of the head is mild, gracious, and tranquil; the character is clearly African, but the mouth, and lips of which are thick as most Negroes, has a softness and delicacy of execution truly admirable; it seems real life and flesh. Art must have been at a high pitch when this monument was executed; for, if the head wants what is called style, that is the say, the straight and bold lines which give expression to the figures under which the Greeks have designated their deities, yet sufficient justice has been rendered to the fine simplicity and character of nature which is displayed in this figure…”

— The Sphinx of Giza image (above) is from the Freeman Institute Black History Collection

Vivian Denon was a well respected diplomat. He was appointed as the first Director of the Louvre French museum by Napoleon after the Egyptian campaign of 1798–1801, and his drawing of the Sphinx displaying its original Negroid features are commemorated in the Denon Wing of the modern museum.

He also wrote in his two-volume Voyage dans la basse et la haute Egypte(“Journey in Lower and Upper Egypt”) published in 1802, that the original Egyptians were Black skin Negroes and that the sculpted face of the Sphinx was of the same Negro racial type before it was defaced by Napoleon’s army.

Dominique Vivant Baron Denon

continued to insist up until his death on 27 April 1825 that that the original face of the Sphinx was that of an African Negro before Napoleon had it was destroyed by cannon fire. In 1787, French orientalist Count Constantine de Volney travelled to Egypt and also described the population as “black with woolly hair”, and “true Negroes of the same type as all native-born Africans”. The reason why most Black people are unaware that there exist a reputable eye witness account, written testimony and an artist rendering affirming that the colossal Great Sphinx is in fact that of a Black African is because this information has been intentionally suppressed from the public distribution by whites.

The Great Sphinx of Africa’s ancient Egypt was constructed thousands of years long before any non-blacks traveled into Africa; so therefore the Sphinx could only be the head of a Black person. Because they couldn’t have sculpted a race they never met.

The Great Sphinx is not only older than the biblical timeline of the first Jew ( Shem) but it is also much older than the timeline of Adam and Eve’s creation. This proves not only that no Jews built it, but also that Adam and Eve were not the first people on the planet. All that we’ve been taught by the white society are lies designed to makes us think in ways that benefits themselves.

The narrative that Africans were illiterate and uncivilized before the arrival of Europeans is totally untrue. White society sits upon a throne of lies created and sustained by Orwellian propaganda. Orwellian propaganda are societal conditions created and sustained by misinformation, distortions of facts, denial of truth, and even the manipulation of the past practiced by white societies. According to Orwellian propagandists truth is not important true power lies in what’s perceived as true.

All that we’ve been taught by the white society are lies designed to makes us think in ways that benefits themselves.

When history’s proven most nefariously deceitful and racist group controls the information, narratives, imageries that the world receives and perceives as true, they will naturally always manipulate and distort facts, and even history, to favor themselves. It’s simply who they are, and the way they’ve always been.

Those that know the truth must teach”.
