Excerpts from : The Re-invention of Africa

THE BLACK ONES:

One of the paradoxes of history is that it took Africa’s contact with the Arab world to make the Black people of Africa realize that they were black in description, but not necessarily in status. The term “Sudan,” meaning “the Black ones,” carries no pejorative implications. That is why Africa’s largest country in territory (capital Khartoum) still proudly calls itself “Sudan.”

In a European language one cannot imagine an African country calling itself today “Black Land,” let alone “Negrostan,” as the name of a modern state.

On the other hand, it took European conceptualization and cartography to turn Africa into a continent. To Europeans “black” was not merely descriptive; it was also judgmental. Arabs alerted the people of sub-Saharan Africa that they were black. Europe tried to convince Black people that they were inferior.

ISLAM! UNIVERSITIES! MATH!:

The most famous classical centers of Islamic learning in Africa were three Al-Azhar University in Cairo, the collective scholarly academy in Timbuktu, and the oldest Qarawiyin University in Morocco in Fez. Al-Azhar University and the Qarawiyin mosque and University were older than Timbuktu, but they were also older than any Western university in existence. Today Al-Azhar is more than a thousand years old which makes it older than almost any existing Western center of learning


INVENTING THE WORLD:
If Africa invented man in places like Olduvai Gorge, and the Semites invented God in Jerusalem, Mt. Sinai, and Mecca, Europe invented the world, at the Greenwich Meridian. It was Europeans who named all the great continents of the world, all the great oceans, many of the great rivers and lakes and most of the countries. Europe positioned the world so that we think of Europe as being above Africa rather than below in the cosmos. Europe timed the world so that the Greenwich meridian chimed the universal hour.
