A clear view of history is able to help us create the future. This means having a clear knowledge of the actual historical events. I will be posting daily what Africans have contributed to the world. It is evident that there is certainly a lack of knowledge about the true historical contributions made by Africans.
To embark on this journey I must first dispel the biggest myth. The myth that the West brought civilisation to the world. Africa brought civilisation to the west, the west did not have civilisation prior to Africans bring the concept to them.
However, investigation around the world and factual evidence, shows that the West have not been objective enough to teach history without crude falsification.
The Africans brought enormous learning to Spain that over centuries would percolate through the rest of Europe. Generations of Spanish rulers have tried to expunge this era from the historical record.
Black Africans advances in mathematics, astronomy, art, and agriculture. They brought this knowledge and helped propel Europe out of the Dark Ages and into the Renaissance. The sources below are very useful if you want to do research in regards to the contribution of Africa in ending the European’s Dark Ages.
