It Was Europeans Who Carried Civilization to ‘Primitive Africans’  

Not only were African people the first people on the planet, but there is plenty of evidence to show that Black people built and maintained many of the world’s earliest and most magnificent civilizations.

The Greeks are considered by many Euro-American scholars to be the first civilized Europeans. But a preponderance of evidence demonstrates that this Mediterranean society has the Black Africans of the Nile Valley to thank for their contributions to Grecian art, architecture, math and science.

The Greeks passed on this acquired culture to the Romans who ultimately lost it, thus initiating the Dark Ages that lasted for 500 years. Civilization was again restored to Europe when another group of Black Africans, the Moors, brought the Dark Ages to an end.
