[MUST HAVE/MUST READ] Preocolonial Black Africa by Cheikh Anta Diop

In any case, the notion of attributing these ruins (Great Zimbabwe) to a non-African, non-Black people (Persians, Arabs, Phoenicians, or Israelites: King Soloman’s Mines) is once and for all invalidated. All of the digs carried out so far at the site have indeed yielded only Bantu-type skeletons. pg. 199

In the Zambezi River basin of Zimbabwe (formerly Rhodesia), monumental ruins, today fallen into disuse, cover a surface practically as large as France. pg. 197

According to all the documents currently available to us, the Sudan was one of the earliest civilizations in Black Africa: it was the Ethiopia of antiquity. pg. 196
