"The moment the men of any Race permit the cheapening of their women, the pollution of their women, their Race is doomed, for no Race deserves to rise in the scale of being which does not do reverence to or respect the honor and good name of its women. Even among the lower animals, the males will fight to the death to protect the females. The Negro Race can never hope to rise to any great eminence in the world when the spineless cowardice of its men permits the open degradation of its girls and young women by leprous and lecherous libertines of alien Races." - John Edward Bruce 1920

Nile Valley civilization was not the only civilization on the continent of Africa. Indeed, African civilization was continent wide. But the civilization of the valley of the Nile was arguably the most important one and possibly the earliest. The history of Kmt, while not nearly complete, is extremely well documented, and it is the one that Europeans have tried their best to snatch away from Africa. Here, we are reclaiming it. Here we are focusing on it. And we make no apologies for it. Egypt is in Africa and always has been. Let it remain so. Ase! - Runoko Rashidi

“The family in Africa is always extended. You would never refer to your cousin as “cousin,” because that would be an insult. So your cousins are your sisters and brothers. Your nieces are your children. Your uncles are your fathers. Your aunts are your mothers. Your sister’s husband is your husband, your brother’s wife is your wife. Children are also encouraged to call other people outside the family mothers and fathers, sisters and brothers.” -Sobonfu Some
