Andrew Nayyar's curator insight, February 20, 2014 9:09 PM

Very great history on the Nubian empires rises and falls. This article wastes no time and paints a picture of what the Nubian people endured. Before reading this article I did not know that Nub meant gold in Egyptian and all of Egypts wealth came from the Kush mountains. This artcile emphasizes the word "black pharaohs" rather than just saying Pharoah. I would guess that all of the Pharaohs would share a similar skin tone. This article also gives some great background on why there are more pyramids in Sudan than Egypt.

A Hundred Years after the 1913 Land Act

A Hundred Years after the 1913 Land Act | Culturally Teaching | Scoop.it
In the famous opening lines of his, Native Life in South Africa, Sol Plaatje wrote, "Awakening on Friday morning, June 20, 1913, the South African Native found himself, not actually a slave, but a pariah in the land of his birth". It was the colonial wars of the previous century that had left Africans with only 7% of the land in the new Union of South Africa, but it was the Land Act of 1913 that entrenched land dispossession by preventing Africans from buying or renting land from whites. It became a legal cornerstone of the segregationist project.

A People’s History of Muslims in the United States

A People’s History of Muslims in the United States | Culturally Teaching | Scoop.it
What school textbooks and the media miss by Alison Kysia When I teach history related to Islam or Muslims in the United States, I begin by asking students what names they associate with these terms. The list is consistent year after year: Malcolm X, Elijah Muhammad, and Muhammad Ali. All of these individuals have affected U.S. history in significant ways. If we take a step back and look at the messages these figures communicate about Muslims in U.S. history, we see a story dominated by men and by the Nation of Islam. Although important, focusing solely on these stories leaves us with a skewed view of Muslims in U.S. history. Even these examples are a stretch. Most of my students reference 9/11 as the first time they heard of Muslims.

The African Principle

The African Principle | Culturally Teaching | Scoop.it
“When a people lose the knowledge of who they are, that is, their culture, they
lose the very foundation upon which their individual existence and their society
is based. To combat this loss, each African person must be equipped with a
‘Grand Vision of the Future,’ a vision extending beyond personal interests such
that this vision becomes the embodiment of the vital interest and moral
centerhood of the entire African World Community. I refer to this vision as The
African Principle. The African Principle places the moral, economic, political,
and spiritual centerhood of African people on the African continent, the land of
our ancestors. It is the ideological, spiritual, and moral direction of African
people; it is the underlying source that makes us an African people. It is that
which makes us who we are and what we are. It is the voice of our ancestors,
and it is the essence of our existence. Moreover, the African Principle is the
underlying source of the African Value System, the gift from our Creator passed
on to us through our ancestors. It represents those standards, rules, laws, and
customs that should guide our behavior and serve as the foundation and
motivation for all of our actions. It is the quality underlying the source of
our existence. Some, if not most of our African leaders, have compromised the
African Principle in order to achieve personal success and security at the
expense of the African masses. In essence, the African Principle requires that
African organizations and leaders of these organizations act in the greatest
interests of the greatest number of African people. As such, the African
Principle is the standard against which we must measure the actions of our
leaders and the organizations that claim to represent the interests of the
masses of African people.”
