Talents and Achievements

It is no news that African/black people love to flaunt their talents and achievements, the question is, why shouldn’t we? after all people of color have been through, we deserve a standing ovation for our talents & achievements, past and present.

Despite suffering through the horrific system of slavery, sharecropping, and the Jim Crow era, early African-Americans and Caribbeans made countless contributions to science and technology, This lineage and culture of achievement, though, emerged at least 40,000 years ago in Africa. Unfortunately, few of us are aware of these accomplishments, as the history of Africa, beyond ancient Egypt, is seldom publicized.

Sadly, the vast majority of discussions on the origins of science include only the Greeks, Romans and other whites. But in fact, most of their discoveries came thousands of years after African developments. While the remarkable black civilization in Egypt remains alluring, there were sophistication and impressive inventions throughout ancient sub-Saharan Africa as well. There are just a handful of scholars in this area. The most prolific is the late Ivan Van Sertima, an associate professor at Rutgers University. He once poignantly wrote that “the nerve of the world has been deadened for centuries to the vibrations of African genius”
