The Moorish Empire – Not African
Ancient Zimbabwe – Not African

the kinte space [KinteSpace] @Ajairah1 It seems “normal” that ancient Rome was somehow British in the same manner that all these African achievements are somehow not of African origin. Senegalese physicist Cheikh Anta Diop dedicated his life to eradicate this “normalcy.”

the kinte space [KinteSpace] @Ajairah1 It may help to mention that, for English speakers to this day, ancient Rome is British because every widely distributed presentation of Rome is filled with folks with posh English accents.
