Blacks' Forgotten Role In Western History

Updated on February 27, 2015


White Washing Of History

Most people including, black people, have been misled by the, white washing, of black people/Africans role out of the history of the world.

We’ve all been educated to believe, that Africans/blacks, never contributed anything to the history of the western world.

In early movies, like the very popular, Tarzan King Of The Jungle, movies of the 1950s, where you have, a heroic white man, swinging between trees, like an ape, ruling over the African jungle. The natives, indigenous blacks, are depicted as being superstitious fools, believing the white Tarzan is a god.

The philosophy of the superiority, of the white race, over blacks and other non-white “races”, only allowed blacks to be depicted as superstitious, uneducated, mentally incompetent fools.

White Supremacy And History

Many of the white historians who believed in doctrine of white supremacy, deleted, edited, ignored etc, any mention of blacks showing genius, heroism, or greatness, in history or depicted them as being white. Once such instance is the history of the Islamic "Moors" involvement in "Western" history.

Black A Moors

The Islamic Moors ruled Spain for about 800 years, but in the history books, they aren’t shown to be black, but they were black. Or as Shakespeare and others knew them, they were Black a Moors.

The “Black a Moor” ruler, Tarig Ibn Ziyad, conquered Spain in 710AD. In his honor, what is now known as the “Rock of Gibraltar” was named after him. It was called “Jabal Al Tarik (The Mountain Of Tarig)

The Black A Moors became so important, that, many of Europe's elites named themselves after the moors or were mixed with moors. They had names like Blackmore, Morris, More, Wilmore, Whitmore, etc or any other version of Moor.


The greatest city in the western world for hundreds of years, was, the African city, of Timbuktu.

Scholars from all over Europe came to study in the temples and schools of Timbuktu

The Black a Moors created the first universities in Europe.

We never learned that in school did we?

      I understand there was a movie made about James P. Beckworth in the 1930s. He is a black mountain man; in the movie, he was played by a white character.
