"..but as I come to close, i want you to bear this in mind: the history of the world is not written,
the history of Europe.. perhaps.. There remains a great deal to be done. There's a whole world out there[..] a whole new set of things are emerging.. this is no closed chapter.. this last chapter has been written with a certain eye.. an eye that has been blind to the genius of the African. Therefore it is only by opening another eye.. by having a different kind of illumination, a different kind of vision.. that the history of the Americas.. that the history of the African can truly be written."

I can most certainly agree with Ivan Van Sertima that "We Came Before Columbus;" but I have strong doubts that those kingdoms/civilizations in the Americas "Came Before Kemet" as some authors may hypothesize.

Science has even attested that LIFE (Mitochondrial Eve) originates in AFRICA.

So, I have strong mis-givings that Africans developed the Americas BEFORE we developed AFRICA.

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:
