Some notes:

Over half of human history was over before anyone knew that a European was in the world.

Propaganda: They propagated a concept that the world waited in darkness for the European to bring the light when the opposite is truth. Everywhere he went in the world, he put out the light.

Hatshepsut who came from the South (Nubia) started trade between west and east coast and China that lasted until 17th century. Each time Egypt was rescued it was rescued by a force from the South.

18th dynasty: Queen Tiy (with the universal "pouty" mouth of the African) gave birth to Amenhotep IV. "I disagree (with Amenhotep's changes to religion) as a mother; you disagree as an enemy" (said to Amenhotep's enemies when they wanted her to conspire to get rid of her son).

960B.C.: Queen of Sheba (Makeda) - was an empress. Ethiopia was her headquarters. Her reason for visiting Solomon: to collect money owed to Ethiopia. Says Solomon raped her and out of that rape came Menelik. Also said Sheba would NEVER have said "I'm black but comely..." In that era, race was not a factor, nor color (as I've said a million times! :lol: )

Not the last or the greatest was Cleopatra VII (at 1:11) used her charms and political skills to manipulate both Caesar and Mark Anthony and keep the worst of Roman rule from the backs of the African (starting as a teenager). Up until recent times whenever she was depicted on the stage or movies, it was as a white woman with dark make-up and a nappy wig. In 1932 was the first time she was depicted as a white woman (Cobra? name of movie?). Since then, she's been always depicted as white.

Cleopatra's great love was Egypt, not Anthony.

I am looking for participants in a study to share their experiences as former African American males served as ED/EBD/BD in the southeast. Participants ages 18-35 will be interviewed and given the opportunity to express their thoughts, feelings and impressions of their school years. If interested or for more information please contact me directly. Thanks, Cheryl

Thank you for the welcome. I have a question. I am a doctorate student in need of participants for my study. Is it allowable to post a request for study participants. If so, this is the post that would be uploaded:
