I thought the articles were interesting. The only problem I see is doing the complete opposite of what the white media does – presenting an unrealistic and overly positive picture of the continent. I want them to simply tell the truth to the folks and encourage them to visit and let them form their own opinions.
If you have not purchased the Discovery’s “The Real Eve” you are missing a real treat. It is narrated by Danny Glover. The documentary gives you a story of how all humans owe their existence to African ancestors who began migrating out of Africa 50,000 years ago, and populated the entire planet. Do you know that Europa(Europe) was last the place to be populated primarily because it was a huge glacier. When they finally got there, they were met by the Neanthertals . They died out about 25000 after their arrival. Y’all got to buy this DVD.
Also the national geographic has a film called “the Search for Adam” and he doesn’t look nothing like a European.
Oki doki. Don't let the white Michael Jackson scare you.
