To be proud to be African one must learn history
There are many web sites where you can have good information and many books. Some of them are in french and other languages.
Below I give you some of them. You just have to learn history by yourself, read what the Greek Herodotus, Diodorus and other like Jean François Champollion, Francois de Chassboeuf also known as Compte de Volney, Books of Cheikh Anta Diop, Ivan Van Sertima, book 'Stolen Legacy,' by Professor George James; Theofile Obenga; Jean Philippe Omotunde, Louis Marie Diop Maes and others...
Web site to see and for the ones in Frenche especially africamaat you need a translation. You can contact their web master and ask for a cooperation to translate or to make a web site in different languages English, French, Spanish, Portuguese etc...

I am writing a book to make a summary of different informations. I want that book to be in english too and in free loading. Another version paper back or else will be available for those who can or want to pay for it. This should be world wide spread.
In short Africans brought civilisation to Europe! All three revealed religions were originated from Egypt. Egyptian, Nubian..;are africans. In 1500 African population was at minimum 600 million people (800 million is not exagerated) with Kingdoms all over, Mali Empire, Ghana, Monomatopa, Benin with the main road long of 7 km and a circumference of 30 km with wall up to 7 meters high, good native food, agriculture, fishing, farm raising , smal and big villages, cities with more than 200 000 people, Huge Palace made of wood, clay and some in concrete like in Zimbabwe and along the east coast of Africa.This is very serious work, not propaganda and much of the witnesses reporting this were not African but Arabic and European. Africa, America, Europe and Asia were all in average at the same level, with America like the Inca, Maya, Aztek...
In 1900 the population fell below 200 million. 25 million slave were taken. Internal rivalries and wars much increased due to the Arabic and European trades, deceases due to loss of land, psychologic shocks, unsecure area, deceases brought by Europeans, loss during the attacks by Europeans and Arabs, the ocean trip, colonizaion and forced labors and so on gave the average figure that for one slave taken between 1500 and 1900...more than 22 died or missed du to unborn children.
We can remind that Mexico lost 24 million people between 1500 and 1600 of 25 million only 1 million people left...
The first concentration camp were in Africa, to hold the women and children to force the man to work and whan they came back if they cam back, the women were rapped, some children died etc...
You will learn with no joke that when Columbus reach America there were few black populations as reported by some people of its crew. The King Man Musa in 1300 lauched hundred and hundre of Vessels on the Ocean to reach America but never came back. It is believed that some reached the land. The head of the Olmek and some Mexican Historians acknowledge that they had native black population before Columbus.
The Moore black muslims and some mixed with Arabs conquered the south of Europe and were stopped at Poitier has official history said. But even in the line of the british kingdom some blacks are reported. Well in short when you dig this stuff you can understand the level of the cover up. At least 3 popes were also of African origin.
Again Puskin, Hannibal, Dumas, Saint Maurice and many other are well know because too difficult to hide. And the Greeks themselves acknowledge that Africans from Egypt and Phenicia ruled Athen.
Wish you success and time to sort all of this out. We went through hell for 4 centuries, furnished troops for European wars and only in 1930, 1950 things started to clm down and the population start to rose again in 1920 approximately.
If we separately or together spread serious work and studies about these subject until reaches many Africans on the continent then we have a chance to make it one day.
Just look at the past and adapt it to our times.
