Test Your Knowledge of Africa and Her Peoples

Black History is often put aside for February when acknowledgment is made to the many deserving contributors of African American history. The reality is that Africans of the motherland and diaspora have a rich tapestry of history that is deliberately denied by the ruling elite so as to condition the minds they seek to rule.

If you are not Black take the test anyways to see just how much you know about the first family on earth, if you are Black test yourself and see how well you "know thyself"
