African Origins Of Humanity - Cheikh Anta Diop

Cheikh Anta Diop is the Master Scholar of the African World. His Cultural Unity of Africa gave us a new scientific analysis of African and world culture, as he called it the Southern Cradle and Northern Cradle paradigm. A linguistic and anthopological analysis of these civilizations, he also gave a comparative lingusitic analysis of Kemit and West Africa, concluding these were members of the same cultural group. In his mythological and religious analysis, he compared the Yoruba myths, Hausa myths with the mythology of Kemit, finding them similar in linguistic and cultural aspects. There is thus a cultural unity between East and West Africa. Chancellor Williams, in his Destruction of African Civilization, explains to us that migration was a central theme in our culture, going back 6,000 years when we first allowed foreigners into Kemit, but along with external political factors were ecological factors as well as struggle over succession rights/rites (Sun Ra). --Marvin X, M.A., San Francisco State University
