Reply to "Why Africana History? by Dr. John Henrik Clarke"

What amazes me is how so many of us just love and wallow in the ignorance of Self and Black History and African History.  

 

There are still Black people in America that are actually offended by being referred to as an African American, because they are really offended to be thought of as African.

 

I have had certain Black people to tell me that they do not see what 'African history' or Africa has to do with them; hell, we are African History, the Trans-Atlantic Slave Trade is as much a part of African History as it is our history.  The mere existence of African Americans is African History and fact that we are descendants of Africans makes Africa part of our history as well.  

 

When they revise or rewrite or destroy any part of Africa's history, it in turn revises or rewrites or destroys part of our history.
