Learn about the African Kushites who overthrew the ancient Egyptians.
Around 800 BC, Kush, a little-known subject state of Egypt, rose up and conquered Egypt, enthroned its own Pharaohs and ruled for nearly 100 years. This unlikely chapter of history has been buried by the Egyptians and was belittled by early archaeologists, who refused to believe that dark-skinned Africans could have risen so high.
I have re-fallen in love with PBS, mainly because their online selection of videos is so frickin’ BAMF.
Thought my followers would enjoy this little FULL EPISODE about racism, archaeology, and the fact that YES, THERE WERE BLACK RULERS OF EGYPT AND BLACK PEOPLE IN EGYPT AND GUESS WHAT, THEY KICKED ASS.
