Black History : QUESTION?

This is a condensed list of some of the major ethnic groups. I will start first with West Africa since the bulk of our ancestors came from there. This list is by no way authoritative; I am working off my 14 years of study of the various ethnic groups. So there may be some missing info. I ask that please forgive my human failings in that regard. Plus, I'm typing this holding my baby daughter.
