The Black Mummy of Libya

The British historian Hugh Trevor-Roper (1914 – 2003) infamously made the comment that Africa has no history. Research is putting the lie to that statement in many ways. The problem is that the world as a whole still believes that lie. The African origin of Homo Sapiens still tends to be rejected out of hand by people who prefer to feel confortable with their prejudices. All the more reason for Caribbean peoples to know the truth. So we can start with a mummy which is 5,500 years old.....
