"Black Labor, White Wealth" by Dr. Claud Anderson

By the time the Greeks, the Romans, and the European Christians awoke to claim greatness, the Ancient Egyptian Africans had 'already' performed, invented, executed, fulfilled, carryed out, produced, and created 'all' the greatest feats in the world for mankind:

Postal Service
Schools of government
Paper and ink
Writing systems
The calendar

and every possible concept that has made modern civilization be what it is today.... -- p.140, "The Africans Who Wrote the Bible" by Dr. Alex Darkwah.

Nope! There is no debate. The facts speak for themselves...!
