Ancient African history is much more than 


Egyptian pyramids and Nile civilization.

Human history actually began in Africa. 


The first humans emerged in Africa around 


two million years ago, long before the modern


 humans known as Homo sapiens (the species 


that all living human beings on this planet


 belong to) appeared on the same continent.


All the earliest evidence of human existence


has been found in Africa. Scientific research


 points to the fact that all human beings have 


African ancestors.



Africa was not just the birthplace of 


humanity, but also the cradle of early 


civilizations. Africa has made an immense 


contribution to the world and is still thought


 highly oftoday. The great achievements 

 

 of the early African civilizations, were first 


developed in the Nile valley over 5,000 years 


ago.

Thousands of years ago, Africans were developing 


some of the most advanced political systems 


anywhere in the world.

Europeans knew quite a bit about Africa, yet


European leaders began to intentionally ignore 


earlier sources of information to justify 


colonialism and anti-Blackness. 




So why do some people insist on 


referring to Africa as the Dark 


Continent?


Some refer to Africa as the dark continent to 


legitimize the enslavement of Black people 


and the exploitation of Africa's resources.

Lying begins when people attempt to twist or 


misrepresent the truth. They give in to Satan’s 


schemes and end up speaking satan's native 


language of lies, exaggerations, and 


misrepresentations of the truth.
