Cairo - the capital and largest city of Egypt

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Cairo

Cairo (/ˈkaɪroʊ/ kye-roh; Arabic: القاهرة‎‎ al-Qāhirah, Coptic: ⲕⲁϩⲓⲣⲏ Kahire) is the capital and largest city of Egypt. The city's metropolitan area is the largest in the Middle East and the Arab world, and 15th-largest in the world, and is associated with ancient Egypt, as the famous Giza pyramid complex and the ancient city of Memphis are located in its geographical area. Located near the Nile Delta,[2][3] modern Cairo was founded in 969 CE by Jawhar al-Siqilli ("the Sicilian") of the Fatimid dynasty, but the land composing the present-day city was the site of ancient national capitals whose remnants remain visible in parts of Old Cairo. Cairo has long been a center of the region's political and cultural life, and is nicknamed "the city of a thousand minarets" for its preponderance of Islamic architecture.

Ancient pharaoh statue dug up from Cairo mud is not Ramses II but a different king

A statue found in the mud on the outskirts of Cairo, which was thought to represent the great pharaoh Ramses II, is of another ancient king.

Experts had believed that the statue pulled out from from ground water in eastern Cairo on the site of the ancient capital Heliopolis earlier in March was a depiction of Ramses II, who ruled from 1279 to 1213 BCE ...

But the country's antiquities minister, Khaled al-Anani, has said that it is in fact a depiction of Psamtek I, who ruled around 600 years later, between 664 and 610 BCE

We are in a new era. Those facts give us evidence we can reach the Melanin Tipping Point just by telling the truth. The Melanin Tipping Point is the point at which we go from healing to healed. Mchakato wa Uponyaji is the process of healing. Melanin Is Worth More Than Gold. That fact puts us in a different state mentally. It affects different people differently. What is certain is the Ubuntu paradigm is returning.
Melanin is worth more than gold. The Red, Black and Green is 100 years old. The Afric, official currency of the United States of Africa is worth over $2.
