The new year is upon us according to the Gregorian calendar or the Roman calendar and what that means too many black folks is that black history month is around the corner. Average black folks (and we say that politely) get very excited about black history month, primarily focusing on the accomplishments great Black men and women achieved during the days of slavery here in America.
But what more in-depth thinking and historical researching black folks get more excited about is what was taking place before slavery. Lots of research has been done over the last 100 years by prominent professors, great archaeologists, and very stern researchers; however much of the researched conclusions have been scattered all over; with these educated African-American scholars coming to various conclusions.
One conclusion they all agree about is that blacks were the original rulers of this world. They were prominent people with rich heritage and they fell down (many just do not know why). They fell down to white supremacy, to white rule, and because of the illusion of rulership by certain families of blacks they ended up in slavery and captivity. We hope over the next few weeks, leading into black history month (here in the US because there is no black history month in Nigeria or Zimbabwe), to make the common knowledge among many researching and reading black folks more common to others who do not do as much reading and studying, but would love the knowledge and enlightenment, we want to shed some light on them.
We even ask our readers to send in material that you believe needs to be shared about great events and great things our ancestors have done. Then let us remember love for each other all our days in this pilgrimage on the earth, God bless you and stay tuned for more little-known black history facts.
