The African Origin of Civilization

leave a comment »


Cheikh Anta Diop (1923–1986) was a Senegalese historian, anthropologist, physicist and politician who studied the human race’s origins and pre-colonial African culture. He is considered one of the greatest African historians of the 20th century.


Dr. Diop shows how African people, whose civilizations were old before Europe was born, were systematically read out of the respectful commentary of human history.
