    Why has African and other aspects of Black history/culture/civilization been terribly undervalued

    and underplayed, even denigrated in European and Euroamerican cultures and societies?

    Where should we have this information in the United States?
    I am not aware of the problem, so I don't have any reference to really answer your question.

    You mean besides the reason that we are also largely unaware of Indian, Native American and many other cultures? Which is mainly disinterest.
    Africa is very diverse and is hard to group and generalize. Also Africans in the city are not interested in the culture and Africans in the villages don't have access to media.
    One more thing, the culture is not valued here. In Africa every culture is extremely valued in each respective community.

      We do know about Nigeria because that is the African Capital of Internet Schemes.
      I heard about slave trading, drug trafficking, diseases, and wars. blacks that were slaves brought to America were probably kidnapped by black tribes and  sold

      That is not African culture. That is African history.
      I repeat Africa is diverse.
