Therefore, it is more important than ever that our global communities take their own perspective on history and learn that there were over 300 kingdoms and empires on both ends of the Black / African continent some of which did not last. only a few centuries and that many others have prospered for millennia ” (Ivan Van Sertima, Black / African historian).
Former French President Nicolas Sarkozy (the very one who killed Gaddafi) had stated bluntly that "Blacks / Africans have not made much history". In fact, he meant that "blacks / Africans don't have a real history".
Until the lions have their own historians, the history of the hunt will always glorify the hunter; the French version says "The world which collapses". This quote from Chinua Achebe (great Nigerian writer) says it all.

Whether they are Catholics, Protestants or other missionaries of any scientific training, they are the same. They wrote about Africa and Blacks / Africans a history of the conquerors, whose history reduces or annihilates the conquered peoples.
