Due to the colonization and slavery of Africa, Plenty of African History and Cultural traditions have been lost. One of the traditions is the dread lock style. In Ancient West African culture dreads had spiritual symbolism to them. A person that wore dreads showed they were embarking on a spiritual journey and seeking a deeper spiritual connection to God. Dreads were believed to be a spiritual extensions to the creator of the universe. Dreads were not the only hair style that had this symbolism, in Nigeria the women used to style their hair in a way to where the braids were pointing up to the sky as a form of an antenna,This was done also as a form of a spiritual connection. Today, many Africans view dreads as taboo with having the interpretation of a person practicing “voodoo” or witchcraft. Smh it’s sad to see what has happened to us!

Traces of coca and nicotine found in Egyptian mummies - WTF fun facts
well DUH. a lot of historians are still trying to process the fact that ancient egyptians knew how to build boats, which is ridiculous. why would they not be seafarers and explorers?
this is not new or surprising information at all. it pretty much day one of any african-american studies course.
the egyptians knew that if they put their boats in front of the summer storm winds it’d blow them right across the sea to the Americas and they shared that with the greeks.
It’s really hard for people to understand that everyone had boats, exploration, and trade interactions without the same level of murder, colonization, and violence that the Europeans did. It’s really hard for people to get that.
The Sea-Craft of Prehistory (book; Eurocentric as heck)
Scientific Evidence for Pre-Columbian Transoceanic Voyages (273 pages-for the hardcore only!):The only plausible explanation for these findings is that a considerable number of transoceanic voyages in both directions across both major oceans were completed between the 7th millennium BC and the European age of discovery. Our growing knowledge of early maritime technology and its accomplishments gives us confidence that vessels and nautical skills capable of these long-distance travels were developed by the times indicated. These voyages put a new complexion on the extensive Old World/New World cultural parallels that have long been controversial.

Oh my Fuckin
Do you realize how annoying it is when you don’t switch paragraphs when a new character is speaking
Do you realize how confusing it is
I don’t care if they’re using one-word responses at each other, start a new damn paragraph.
ESPECIALLY IF YOU HAVE MORE THAN ONE CHARACTER.
dear christ this.
no more walls of text please. please.
These are things 4th graders should know…who doesn’t know this???
It is not up to us to not be the stereotype (whatever the fuck that means)
White people made the stereotype up
They made the shit up so they could make themselves feel superior
They didn’t make it up so we could jump the hurdle and tap dance for them
but to maintain their supremacy.
