    The Glory of Africa Part 6 What more can be said about the Beautiful & Excellent Motherland of Africa. It is the home of our ancestors and the srcin of Human Mitochondria DNA. Africa is the Mother of many peoples and   tongues. Glory is related to the great Motherland of Africa. Inspiring history, long struggle, and   huge victories are included in the entire African story . When I learn more about the excellent beauty of Africa, I can learn more about myself since I am a black African American. All those of black African descent are one irrespective of nationality. That means that whether we live in Houston, St. Louis, Oakland, Richmond, Boston, Atlanta, Miami, New Orleans, Baton Rouge, Philadelphia, or South Africa, we are one. We are one people. We are black and we are beautiful. We continue to have faith and this faith can maintain a sense of dignity, strength, and Love. We believe in being proactive as a means to create solutions for our people too. Chains cannot hold the truth down. The truth can never be vanquished either by vicious dogs, burning buildings, nor any evil. We live in a new generation. The old past inspires us, the current present motivates us, and the glorious future beacons us. That is why with intrepid action and true love, we can establish a real power base that can change the whole word. Good   will always triumph against evil in the end. Therefore, we will overcome and we will achieve Black   Liberation at the end of the day. Also, it is important to note that we have every right to receive   JUSTICE. JUSTICE MEANS THAT THE CURRENT SYSTEM OF OPPRESSION MUST END AND A   BETTER, FAIR SYSTEM MUST BE INSTITUTED. THE SYSTEM HAS MURDERED OUR PEOPLE   FOR CENTURIES AND THERE IS NO JUSTIFICATION WHATSOEVER TO ALLYING WITH A   WICKED SYSTEM. WE HAVE EVERY GOD GIVEN RIGHT TO EXPRESS SELF    DEFENSE AND SELF DETERMINATION IN THE WORLD . WE HAVE EVERY RIGHT   TO FIGHT AGAINST EVIL. YOU HAVE TO FIGHT. THE SYSTEM OF WHITE SUPREMACY   MUST BE GONE PERIOD. THE OPPRESSOR MUST EXPERIENCE JUSTICE AND   ACCOUNTABILITY. WE MUST RESPECT NATURE IN A HUMBLE FASHION. THE DESTRUCTION   OF NATURE HARMS HUMANITY AND THE WORLD IN GENERAL. WE MUST PROTECT THE   ENVIRONMENT. A’int nothing like real truth and real joy in outlining the truth about black people.   A BLACK MAN HAS EVERY RIGHT TO SHOW HIS STRENGTH IN THE WORLD. A BLACK WOMAN HAS EVERY RIGHT TO SHOW HER STRENGTH IN THE WORLD TOO. BROTHERS AND SISTERS HAVE THE TOTAL JUSTIFICATION TO SEEK JUSTICE, WISDOM, AND INSIGHT AS A MEANS FOR US TO HAVE TOTAL BLACK LIBERATION. Black African consciousness is necessary for any black human being. We need it as a means to understand Africa fully and love our God given BLACKNESS. OUR BLACKNESS IS GREAT. True teaching and true wisdom are not about the random memorization of facts and figures. True wisdom is about the awakening of human consciousness and critically applying what you know to benefit yourself & the people . At the end of the day, we have a duty to build ourselves and our   neighbors for we are tied with each other in mutuality as members of humanity. Growing the human   consciousness is necessary as a means for us to embrace the truth. We need justice, freedom, and we   have the right to advance morality in the world. This is part and parcel of our African cultural ethos. That   is why we should not only expose the enemy. We should also build up our morality and seek justice. Now,   that means we should love justice, we should love fairness, we should reject lies or deception, and we   should advance cultural growth. So, it is important for us to study Ancient Egypt, real other African   civilizations, pan Africanism, African languages, and other great aspects of Africa as a means to connect   with Africa. The more we learn and appreciate Africa, the more we love Africa and we identify with it. At   the end of the day, we are all Africans. It does not matter if we live in Virginia, New York, Georgia,   California, Missouri, Florida, Canada, South America, Brazil, Paris, Amsterdam, London, South Africa,   Nigeria, or wherever. We are all one people. We are all Africans and we are all of black African descent.   WE ARE ALL BLACK AND BEAUTIFUL. BLACK IS BEAUTIFUL.   We may have different nationalities, but we are on the same path. That path leads into black African consciousness and the love for our people. Ignorance is an enemy of humanity. We should fight it with vigor and zeal. Ignorance is more than social nihilism. Ignorance deals with a vulgar selfish individualism that worships materialism and selfishness instead of embracing selflessness. We need true collaboration with our neighbors in a pan-Africanist mindset. Our people are globally, so we ought to continue to embrace our Brothers and our Sisters throughout the world. Global, progressive insights are necessary in a global community. We must learn the past, work in the present, and strive to fight for a better future for our children, grandchildren, and great grandchildren (including beyond). We have a legacy and our legacy is beautiful. We must take responsibility for our voluntary actions. In other words, we should do the right thing, treat our neighbors as ourselves, and encourage Young Black kids to act ethically. Yet, we should never be submissive toward injustice (also, we should never pant a broad brush against all black people for the actions of the few either). If there is an injustice in the world, we have the right to   speak out about it. We do not bow down to racism, poverty, and any injustice. We   fight it. We should grow and be more mature as time goes on in our lives. In other words, true African consciousness is about developing our health, embracing African tongues, loving African culture, growing our ethics, and having an undying love for black humanity all over the world. Now, we should be united in one goal and that is black pan-Africanist liberation. Our Brothers and our Sisters should be liberated and they have the right to be. We must liberate ourselves and help our people as well. As the Great Sister   Courtney wrote :  “…All Black skin is beautiful. Light, medium, brown, dark. Period…”  So, as we can see that early evidence of agriculture in Africa can be found from 16,000 B.C. and metallurgy from ca. 4,000 B.C. *Ancient black civilizations have shown great intellectual knowledge, great engineering skills, great strength, great language (I love to research the black African Meroitic alphabet script too) great beauty, and great inspirational qualities of human civilization. The famous Kingdoms and Empires of ancient Africa include Nubia, ancient KMT, Nok, Mali , Ashanti, the Kingdom of Mapungubwe, Zimbabwe, Aksum, Songhai Mali, etc. Ancient black Nubians even ruled ancient Egypt for a while. It began under Kashta and it was completely by Piye during the 8th century. This was the birth of the 25th Dynasty of Egypt. Other rulers were Shabaka and Taharqa. They ruled ancient Egypt for a hundred years. The Nubian pharaoh Tantamani was the last of the 25th dynasty. The city of Meroe was home to the Meroitic alphabet. They worked in iron making and cotton cloth of manufacturing in the Nubian Kingdom. The ancient land of Punt is found in Somalia. Thousands of years ago, ancient Somalia has been found with pyramidal structures, mausoleums, ruined cities, and stone walls like the Wargaade Wall. They traded heavily with ancient Egypt and Mycenaean Greece since the start of the second millennium B.C. The Puntites traded myrrh , spices, gold, ebony, short-horned cattle, ivory and frankincense with the Ancient Egyptians, Phoenicians, Babylonians, Indians, Chinese and Romans through their commercial ports. An Ancient Egyptian expedition sent to Punt by the 18th dynasty Queen Hatshepsut is recorded on the temple reliefs at Deir el-Bahari , during the reign of the Puntite King Parahu and Queen Ati.

It is the world second largest and second most populous continent in the world. It has over 1   billion human being living in it now . Nigeria is the largest nation in Africa by population. A lot of the   ancestors of African Americans came from Nigeria and West Africa in general. Africa has excellent   human beings. It has great biodiversity as well. There are many famous Africans who inspired the world   not the beautiful Motherland of Africa. There were many Pan-Africanists that wanted justice for African    peoples of the world. Now, Pan-Africanists still exist today that desire freedom, justice, and true liberty   given to all African peoples of the globe too. Pan-Africanism is the movement that wants the solidarity of all African peoples of the world economically, socially, politically, morally, and intellectually. It seeks to unify and uplifts all human beings of black African descent. All black people of the world do not just share a common history, but a common destiny .   We know that the hero of Kwame Nkrumah was a famous leader of the black Pan-Africanist movement.   Those who believed in this view included of course Marcus Garvey, WEB DuBois, Malcolm X, and others.   Those who believed in Pan-Africanism wanted resources to work in collaborated with Africans as a   means to enrich the entire African community. Pan-Africanism is against slavery, racism, colonialism, and   neo-colonialism. The great black African abolitionist Ottobah Cugoano wanted to free Africans from   slavery. He was born near Ajumako, Ghana in 1757. Pan-Africanist thinking has been embraced by   Martin Delany in the 1800's. Modern Pan-Africanism came about in the late 19th century. There was the   African Association to be later renamed the Pan-African Association. It was created in 1887 by Henry   Sylvester-Williams. Henry Sylvester-Williams opposed racism, imperialism, paternalism, etc. in the world.   He organized the first Pan-African Conference in 1900 in Westminster Hall in London. Pan African   leaders are diverse like Jomo Kenyatta, Julius Nyerere, Marcus Garvey, Ahmed Sekou   Toure, Duse Mohamed Ali, Nkrumah, and so many Brothers and Sisters . One great African   intellectual who was the first President of Senegal was Léopold Sédar Senghor. He lived from 1906 to   2001. One of the greatest scholars in human history about Pan-Africanism was the great John Henrik   Clarke. Many Caribbeans were involved in the growth of pan-Africanism too. Pan-Africanism represented   a profound truth that we should work together as one African people, because all of us are one African   people. The fifth Pan-African Congress can about in 1945. John Henrik Clarke wrote the following   about it:   ...The basic ideas that went into the African independence explosion came out of the fifth Pan-African Congress convened by George Padmore, Kwame Nkrumah, and other Africans, some of whom would become future heads of state. All Pan efforts among African people must ultimately lead to a concept of a world union of African people, in spite of geography, religion, and culture. African people live in many lands, under many regimes and practice many religions and represent many cultures. Wherever they are on the face of this earth they must think of themselves as first and foremost an African people, no less patriotic to the nations where they live outside of Africa. Fundamentally, we should be revolutionary not reactionary.  True African culture loves women and men to have leadership roles in society. True African culture allows the love of music and the love of dance including great fashion. True African culture deals with the love of family  and the reverence of the ancestors . Real African culture deals with a living spirituality that seek to fight injustice, to fight for truth, and develop spiritual power among African human beings.  African culture deals with high morality and collective discipline . African culture is highly collective in its orientation. We as black Africans have a communal mentality and a communal spirit.  True African culture also deals with the love of history. We have to know about science, mathematics, technology, engineering, the environment, and other important subjects .  Also, we   have to know history. If someone doesn't know their history, bad history can be repeated. There should   be total liberation of African peoples. Africans should own their own power.   Amilcar Cabral was one of the greatest heroes of black African history. He was a Guinea-Bissuan and Cape Verdean agricultural engineer, writer, and political leader. He was a nationalist thinker. He was a great anti-colonial leader. He led the nationalist movement of Guinea-Bissau and Cape Verde Islands. There was the war of independence in Guinea-Bissau. He was assassinated on January 20, 1973 about eight months before Guinea-Bissau's unilateral declaration of independence. He was influenced by Marxism, but he was not a Marxist. He was born in September 12, 1926 in Bafata, Guinea-Bissau from
