Dr. Cheikh Anta Diop: The Origin Of Man

AFRICANGLOBE – “Intellectuals ought to study the past not for the pleasure they find in so doing, but to derive lessons from it”. – CHEIKH ANTA DIOP.

“A climate of alienation has a profound effect on the Black personality, particularly on the educated Black, who has the opportunity to see how the rest of the world regards him and his people. It often happens that the Black intellectual thus loses confidence in his own potential and that of his race. Often the effect is so crushing that some Blacks, HAVING EVIDENCE TO THE CONTRARY, still find it hard to accept the fact we really were the FIRST TO CIVILIZE THE WORLD”. – CHEIKH ANTA DIOP
