Contrary to the long-standing European myth of a Caucasian Egypt, Diop’s studies into origins of the human race and precolonial African culture established that ancient Egypt was founded, populated, and ruled by Black Africans; the Egyptian language and culture still exists in modern African languages (including his own Wolof language) ; and that bl ...
15 things about the Moors you probably didn't know 1. The Spanish occupation by the Moors began in 711 AD when an African army, under their leader Tariq ibn-Ziyad, crossed the Strait of Gibraltar from northern Africa and invaded the Iberian peninsula ‘Andalus' (Spain under the Visigoths). 2. A European scholar sympathetic to the Spaniards remembered the conquest in this way: a. [T]he reins of their (Moors) horses were as fire, their faces black as pitch, their eyes shone like burning candles, their horses were swift as leopards and the riders fiercer than a wolf in a sheepfold at night . . . The noble Goths [the German rulers of Spain to whom Roderick belonged] were broken in an hour, quicker than tongue can tell. Oh luckless Spain! [i] [i] Quoted in Edward Scobie, The Moors and Portugal's Global Expansion, in Golden Age of the Moor, ed Ivan Van Sertima, US, Transaction Publishers, 1992, p.336 3. The Moors, who ruled Spain for 800 years, introduced new scientific techniques to Europe, such as an astrola ...
"We have come here believing our history begins in 1492. That's an awful burden. History gives us spiritual power, the belief in self. The reason why we seek it out in Europe, in Asia and in America is because we are a shattered diamond, our pieces are all over the place. We can never feel whole again until we put those pieces together again and that is our mission" - Dr. Ivan Van Sertima
I liked a video Ivan Van Sertima on FTP-Part1B: The Pink African
romans even arrived on the continent africa went by many names Dr Ivan Van Sertima covers this topic very well in his books
History will judge what Ivan Van Sertima called our "500 year room" (1500-now) as a curious age. If we survive it, that is.

This is a bigger tragedy than our sad local and national media will ever inform you about. The Saddest piece for me as a black citizen of the world is that this bookstore is where I began my journey as a seeker. Years of reading Ivan Van Sertima, Anthony Browder, Yosef Ben Jochannan, Patricia Hill Morton and countless other works started with Marcus Book Store. There I learned not just how well documented the voice of my culture was, but I found a bridge to other cultures in works from many other authors of color that were not being supported by the main vein of the publishing industry. In essence I learned about what it meant to be independent when sharing knowledge and how important it is to not allow academic institutions to colonize your mind and subvert your sovereignty. I can even remember being in Mr. Fracknoi's Astronomy class with Mrs. Johnson. Attending school with Tamiko, Raye, and Cherysse gave me an understanding that knowledge and information has to have many custodians or the truth will sim ...
The word INDIAN is INDIA like the INK it means, Black Pigment. See: Webster’s New World Dictionary (Third College Edition, 1988), p.686 .. The status of the descendants of the Moorish Inhabitants of Spain and Portugal on American soil is FREE WHITE PERSONS (natural men and women). This status does not apply to the Caucasian Race, Aryan Race, or Indo-European Races under the Naturalization Act (Amended by Act. July 14, 1879), I Stat.103,c.3 See: Black’s Law Dictionary (Fourth Ed. P. 797) . Circa 711 A.D., The Moors that ruled Moslem Spain and Portugal for centuries were black or dark skinned people.

The Black role in Asia as elsewhere in the world has been submerged and distorted for centuries.

BLACK PRESENCE IN THE ANCIENT BRITISH ISLES One of the most under explored topics in the study of ancient history is the black presence in ancient Europe. A black presence can be found in the British Isles as far back as prehistoric times. The Silures were the most ancient inhabitants of Britain. (The Theosophical Path, vol. 3 by Katherine Tingley, California: The New Century Corporation, 1912, pg. 136) The Silures possessed south Wales and western England, and their chief cities were Sariconium, Magna, Gobabeum, and their capital city, Venta. The land of the Silures was only thirty miles from Ireland. That the Silures were black does not need to be questioned. They were described as short in stature, with brown complexions, and black curled hair and dark eyes. In the second century A.D., the Roman historian Pliny described the Britons complexions as “Ethiopian.” (African Presence in Early Europe by Ivan Van Sertima, ed. New Brunswick: Transaction Publishers, 2007, pg. 225) In his book, Memoirs of the ...
John Henrik Clarke, Kwame Ture, Nelson Mandela, Amiri Baraka, Gil Noble, Betty Shabazz, Rosa Parks, Gil Scot-Heron, Ivan Van Sertima, Chancellor Williams, Coretta Scot King, are in the realm of ancestors. Minister Farrakhan is 80, Dr. Ben is in an old folk's home, Assata is still being hunted. So many of our leaders, intellectuals and activists are now dead or in the twilight of their lives. While they can't be replaced, the oppression they challenged and liberation movement they fought in must still continue. Who will stand up and be counted? Who is carrying the torch? Will we allow them to become mere footnotes in history books or will we build from their example? Will Black social and political struggle continue full force or become an ancient relic fossilized in musuems? I for one pledge to continue the noble struggle! The doors of Black liberation are open. Are there any who will come?
"Prior to the Moorish rule of Spain, 99 percent of European people were illiterate. This was not the case in Africa. Africa had many writing scripts prior to the Trans-Atlantic Slave Trade. There was the Meroitic script, the Hieroglyphic script, the Akan script, the Mende Script, the Vai script, the Afaka script, and many other writing systems. Even the Arabic script was created when Arabia was still completely black. The Arabic script was created by an African man named Abul Aswan." -Dr. Ivan Van Sertima

I had a brief conversation with my cousin Sheryl Pd yesterday and my oldest sister Valerie Valerie Daniels was riding shot gun with her. We were discussing the posts I made on my FB page in relation to twinflame/twinsoul relationships then to topic changed to Jesus... I'm not one to down grade or judge anyone's faith, spiritual or religious belief system. But when I'm told that Jesus leads my life, I ask one simple question... What is the original name of that person? I will allow my divine knowledge to lead me to my following commentary. Unless you have questioned the history or content of your religious faith base, please put that foundation in place before you make a statement about BELIEF before a statement of KNOWING. If you have never studied the literary works of Dr. Henrick Clarke, Dr. Ben Yochannan, Ivan Van Sertima, Cheik Anta Diop, Marimba Ani, Asa Hilliard, Chancellor Williams, Frantz Fanon, Neely Fuller, Professor Griff, Anthony Browder, Kaba Kamene, Dr. Francis Cress-Welsing and so many of o ...

Haiti and Africa, Long Before Columbus Haiti always had a special relationship with Africa. Contrary to popular belief, this special relationship did not start with the transatlantic slave trade; it actually started with the honorable trade in gold and agricultural products. According to Dr. Ivan Van Sertima, in They Came Before Columbus: African Presence in Ancient America, Haiti was the first Caribbean country to engage in pre-Columbian trade with Africa, where Africans cultivated the banana crop and established settlements in Haiti. Dr. Van Sertima states that from 1307 to 1312, Abu Bakr III, Emperor of Mali, commissioned West African merchants, the Sarakole, who were also the founders of the ancient empire of Ghana, to establish trading posts in Haiti. In these trading posts, the West African merchants introduced the gold trade and the art of alloying gold with copper and silver to the natives in Haiti. In addition to the gold trade, Van Sertima asserts that by 1462, West Africans and Haitians were .. ...
Attended the Puerto Rican Festival on Sunday and had a blast! But, man, the questions as to where I'm from and the surprise at seeing me at events like this brings out the sarcasm in me. I remember the Cuban Festivals in Echo Park - where I was constantly asked "where you Cuban?" But, Sunday, was something else. I think I heard, "You, wow, I'm really surprised to see you here" almost a dozen times. I know my salsa friends meant well, but I also know that my response to them "went over their heads". My response was that "I was probably a matter of hours from being Cuban or Rican or Bahamian or Peruvian, etc." My follow-up retort about my folks being in the rear of the slave ship meant that they were not dropped off into slavery on the shores of many Caribbean Islands. Instead, they were transported to the end of the "slave triangle's" route, South/North Carolina, Georgia, and New York in the 1500's and 1600's. Based on the work of Ivan Van Sertima in his text, "They Came Before Columbus", ...

I haven't really posted anything related to Black History Month, but since it's the last day, I'll drop some jewels on y'all. Research these names for self. Mansa Musa, AbuBakari, AbuBakari II, Sunni Ali Ber, Askia Muhammad, Mali Empire, Ancient Timbuktu, History Of Ethiopia, Ivan Van Sertima. There is plenty more, but this is a good start.
It has become clear beyond a shadow of a doubt due to the work of POWERFUL scholars like Dr. Clyde Winters, Dr. Runoko Rashidi, Dr. Ivan Van Sertima, Dr. David Imhotep, Dr. Ali Muhammad and many others that the so called Black Man was the First American and is indigenous to the Americas. Black people should call America home. For centuries, those of European descent have dominated America and called it home, however today due to the waning influence of white Supremacy, Asian and Latino immigrants are beginning to move in and dominate economies all over the Americas and everything is falling into their hands. The question is, should Black People be moving to dominate the Americas as the influence of these other groups is rapidly increasing or should we focus on building up and cultivating Africa? PEACE!! -Ptah

Golden Age of the Moor edited by Ivan Van Sertima[This is why We need god chaste Holy Moslems .]HTP>
There was once a time when European diplomats would walk into our temples and castles and beg to kiss the feet of our African queens. If they came within a 6 feet circumference of our queens they would be swiftly eliminated. Paraphrased from Dr. Ivan Van Sertima's Black Women of Antiquity. That doesn't sound like a B itch or a W hore. That is a queen, a Goddess. What happened? How did we fall? -Ptah

The next issue of JPAS (more specifically) in-part will feature a tribute to African centered pianist, composer and lecturer Randy Weston, a February 20, 2012 interview with Randy Weston by Amy Goodman; a paper that argues that an emphasized down beat commonly referred to in Western music as “one” has a perplexing representation in Ghanaian music; a paper on the resistance to repression in African American visual representation; an article that explores the works of writers Paulo Colina, Salgado Maranhão, and Márcio Barbosa to suggest a comparative commonality within the trope of “interfacial archetypes”; and the testimony of Ivan Van Sertima (1935-2009) held in 1987 before the U.S. Congress to discuss the Christopher Columbus Quincentenary Jubilee Act (presented in memory of Mervyn M. Dymally).

Well, I am done with my morning soapbox about President Obama and Governor Mitt Romney. I am going to do my laundry because I am not doing it tomorrow nor over the Columbus Day weekend. I am doing it that the Family Dollar crowd is not really around and the ones who work are not around. While people are watching either Kathie Lee and Hota, Kelly and Michael, or Maury and his ghetto and trailer park crew, I will be pre-washing, washing, soaking, rinsing, and drying my funky and smelly laundry. I will be reading THEY CAME BEFORE COLUMBUS by the late Dr. Ivan Van Sertima in honor of the Olmec, West African, Incan, Mayan, Aztec and other Pre-Colombian and MesoAmerican cultures before 1492 while being in the laundry.

What’s funny about their usage of the late Chancellor William’s Destruction of African Civilization , page 91 of Golden Age of the Moor by Ivan Van Sertima, in the footnotes makes reference to page 221 of Chancellor’s book who confirms the true identity of the co-called “Blacks” as Moors, as well as them being the same people as the Egyptians. He says, “Now, again, just who were the Moors? The answer is very easy. The original Moors, like the original Egyptians, were Black Africans. As amalgamation became more and more widespread, only Berbers, Arabs and Coloureds in the Moroccan territories were called Moors while the darkest and black-skinned Africans were called “Black-a-Moors.” Eventually, “black” was dropped from “Blackamoor.” In North Africa, and Morocco in particular, all Muslim Arabs, Mixed breeds and Berbers are readily regarded as Moors. The African Blacks, having had even this name taken from them, MUST CONTEND FOR RECOGNITION AS MOORS” (see footnote below)

The works of Ivan Van Sertima, Barry Fell and Alexander Von Wuthenau have shown that there was a significant Muslim presence in the early Americas. Pre- and post-Colombian Muslims.
One of the first regions settled by ancient Africans for thosands of years before Columbus is the Choco Region of Colombia. In fact, in certain areas, such as San Agustin, one will see monuments with Negroid featured sculpture holding African shamanistic objects identical to those used by the ancient Oni or Priest-Kings of Nigeria (see the Essay, "African Civilizations of America." Choco was one of the primary areas of Portugese and Spanish slave-raiding before Columbus' official trip to the Americas. The slaves were Africans who had been living on the coast of Colombia for hundreds of years before the arrival of the Europeans to the New World. In fact, some of the very first African slaves to reach North America were Africans captured on the Coast of South America by the Spaniards and Dutch, then sold to North America (the U.S.) (See the writings of Peter Matyr, Balboa, Ivan Van Sertima); see also the world-famous book, "A History of the African-Olmecs, pub. by 1stbooks Library, 2595 Vernal Pike, Bloomin ...
