My opinion is, itís important for "us" to promote and teach in school books prehistoric African Civilization which begins with the Black race! Yes, my brother the common ancestor of Africans originated in the Nile Valley of Africa. Just to remind you studies have proven that men and women of this area had black skin complexions, broad noses, full lips, and kinky hair. I know the Kongo origin is in the vicinity of the Nile Valley; that the vast amounts of Kongo people -as well as Dahome, Nago etc.- have come from the Nile Valley the Cradle of all Black Civilizations.
I think African peoples would think and live for themselves according to what is best for them if they knew anything about who wrote the sacred records and ancient texts and built pyramids and great monuments on earth. That is why we need to successfully grasp history so not to confuse and misleading ourselves...Even if the western Civilization wishes us to pay attention to similar Civilizations considering them western Civilizations, or that they only began with the inception of the white race(lies and alibis for oppression!).
Eja, you are good brother from Nigeria and I agree with what you stated. I am myself very proud of the stories of the ancient kingdom of the Kongo, and above all the Kongo tradition such as the nganga which is a Bakongo mystical tradition. But what about the many Africans who come on this board? Many of them were not born in the Motherland. They canít talk about how great their culture and societies were because of the slave trade. Itís hard to say exactly who came from where, they donít know their indigenous lineages, villages, or communities.
Letís get real we are in dire need for linguistic, political, and economic unity among Africans and a CULTURAL consciousness that is deeply rooted in prehistoric African history.
