"If a race has no history, it has no worthwhile tradition, it becomes a negligible factor in the thought of the world, and it stands in danger of being exterminated.”
Dr. Carter G. Woodson
Father Of Black History Week/Month
12/19/1875 - 04/03/1950
As we begin February 2024, may we continue to transform our ideologies and mindsets on what it means to Be Black and to celebrate Black History.
TCXPI will use this month to bring facts on Kemetic/Black historical things, events, and places via our TCXPI blog on Ancient African/Kemetic/Egyptian History.
We also will post on The Chinue X Project Inc. It Is Written In Stone, a Facebook page that has been created to bring awareness to the many contributions of people of African descent to world and human civilization. Specifically, the Black History of Ancient African/Kemet/Egyptian that existed Pre-Enslavement. There you will find a variety of facts and resources to continue your trandgotmational journey.
Black History has always existed Pre & Post Enslavement.
Some historians, archeologists and writers over the years have argued that Ancient Egypt was a predominantly black civilization, populated by Sub-Saharan Africans.
Their research shows how Ancient Egyptians once called the land of Egypt and the entire African continent Kemet, meaning “land of the black people.” Some scholars even argue that all black people are descended from ancient Egypt. (1)
Prominent Black Ancient Egyptians
There is much evidence showing how ancient Egypt was ruled and governed by various prominent black leaders. One is the powerful nobleman Maiherpri, who was alive during the reign of Thutmose IV. After his death he was buried in the Valley of the Kings.
In recent times, scientists have made a series of radical breakthroughs about ancient Egyptians by studying the DNA sequences of mummies. Their discoveries suggest many ancient Egyptians were closely related to the people of the Eastern Mediterranean and Near East, a land today covering Jordan, Israel, Turkey, Syria and Lebanon.
