The Cultural Unity of Black Africa

The-Cultural-Unity-of-Black-AfricaThe Cultural Unity of Black Africa is a profound contribution to the universal store of knowledge in that it situates the geographical and cultural origins of patriatchy and matriarchy in Europe and Africa respectively, and shows that social systems evolve out of the specific climatic and environmental factors. The proclivities predispose the inhabitants of both zones towards a particular world-view and thus meaningful conflict. Diop also demonstrates the extensive influence of ancient Egypt on classical Greece in terms of literature, science and philosophy.

Praise for Cheikh Anta Diop

“…Let us venture to say that we in America needed a guide and teacher like Diop. Africa, above all, needed a leader like Diop. History teaches us that men like these do not die at the time of their deaths. Often, it is that the fall of a great teacher or prophet is the beginning of the rise of his ideas. So let it be with Diop.” -Ivan Van Sertima, author of They Came Before Columbus: The African Presence in Early America

“I do not think it is too much for me to say that Cheikh Anta Diop is a resourse for the whole of the African World and his contribution to a new concept of African History is universal. We must preserve him in order to preserve ourselves.” Dr. John Henrik Clarke, author of African World Revolution: Africans at the Crossroads
