I came across one massive load of nonsense titled “Encyclopedia of African History, ISBN 0816051992, 9780816051991. Willie F. Page, Editor, Revised edition by R. Hunt Davis, Jr., Editor”, 2005, by The Learning Source, Ltd. (2176 pages)
Vol 1, is titled “Prehistory to 500 CE”. Do these guys really know what is “Prehistory”?
In their first map on page 9 titled “Africa and the Mediterranean Region: Major Empires and Kingdoms, 3000 BC-700 CE” it stated too many new and foreign names (Persia, Assyria, Egypt, Kush, Abyssinia and all of it) and ignored the genuine native names (Iran, Sumer, Ebla, Ugarit, Dilmun, Magan, Meluhha, Kmt, Kerma and many others). Do these people and their so-called universities know these civilizations and their history???
That book stated that Egypt existed in 2700-1070 BC and Kush started in 2400 BC, and Aksum (500 BC-1000 AD) is different than Punt saying it began in 2000 and ended in 1500 BC!!!!! Do these people and their so-called universities know that Queen Hatshepsut, who visited the prosperous Punt, ruled in the period 1458-1425 BC????

In my opinion, this bunch of contributors and universities are harmful to knowledge and any history.
Afrocentrism is working against Africans and history in general. They are serving their Hyksos masters since 1500 BC until today.
African Americans, Fulani and Turkic Mongolian Akkadian-Amorite Hyksos are really diverting Africans, particularly in West Africa and Maghreb, from their own history to use them against the history of Kmt, Kerma, Punt and Arabs, and even Europe.
Hyksos with Berber devastated West Africa and Maghreb and are using them along with ridiculous arguments to claim that the civilizations and the peoples of Kmt, Kerma and Punt were Negroid West African. Moreover, West Africans, particularly African Americans and Fulani bandits are satisfied with this hoax to fill and forge the gabs in their modern and ancient history under slavery since 1500 BC until 1700 AD, by books, public media or churches. Enough is enough. You must stop this nonsense and treason against Africa and Humanity.
