Journal of African Civilizations. vol 4, no. 2(November 1982), Essays by Cheikh Ante Diop and Bruce Williams …”the best refutation of conventional assumptions of the ancient Egyptian as Caucasoid or Asiatic or a blend of the two”…read very closely.
…but students are warned that the Afrocentric pers-ective is missing in most of the sources from which these facts are culled. That perspective must be consolidated first before they can read further afield with a critical alertness and discrimination…THe study of African science should then proceed to an examination of African science below the Sahara. This is the most comprehensive section of the book and students will find summaries and introductions to astronomy, architetecture, agriculture, (not just the very early Egypto-Nubian but the Saharan and Sudanic agricultural complexes) metallurgy, mathematical systems and medicine, navigation, communication and writing systems. We had hoped for a more detailed essay on African herbal medicine and on drum-scripts of Africa but our research for experts in these fields turned up materials too late for inclusion.

“It is also only within recent years that the discovery of a seminal black kingdom in the Nile Valley, predating the Egyptian dynasties, has settled the question, once and for all, of the roots of classical Egyptian culture and technology (see Journal of African Civilizations, vol. 4, no.2. November 1982)”.
Five centuries of these falsehoods have been exploded in just five years. These years have seen the discovery of African steel smelting in Tanzania 1,500-2,000 years ado, an astronomical observatory in Kenya 300 years before Christ, the cultivation of cereals and other crops by Africans 1,400,000 years ado (one million years before its first know use in China) the use of tetracylene by an ancient African population fourteen hundred years ago, an African glider-plane 2,300 years ago, a probe by microwave beams of an American radar satellite beneath the sands of the Sahara, revealing cultures 200,000 years old and the traces of ancient rivers running from this African center. Some of these buried stream valleys seem to be ancient connections to the Upper Nile tribuaries, toward which blacks migrated, later peopling Nubia and Egypt”…pg. 5…
…We have provided in our introduction an overview of the lost sciences of Africa in areas outside of Egypt…in spite of these oppressive and inhospitable circumstance, there was no total loss of black ingenuity and technological innovation. The thread of African genuius began to unravel,like speen lightning through the spools of the glassfiber lightguides black scientist Northover developed. Or like impulses travelling along the transatlantic cabe Richardson helped to lay down, channeling voice from one continent to another, bridging the chasm between the ancestral African and the modern black , between root and branch, seed and flower, and old hearts and a new brain.

…heartland of it’s civilizations…exploring the simplicities of tiny tribal communities rather than the complexities to be found in primary centers of large African nations…pg 5..Civilization or Barbarism…(CAD)
This is what we know from credible humanistic paleontology
