So true. In fact, before soap was made Africans had been using a special type of leaf to bath with which suds up on contact with water. The other side of the story was that Europeans didn’t bath because Most of Europe is cold and they were unaware that soap existed as well as undeveloped heating technology. The only people that bathed were the Japanese and Africans and eventually the Greeks.

Did you know that Africans descendants rarely got head lice because of our hair follicle unlike Asian and European hair is shaped like a bean as opposed to a round circle or oval shape and because we use hair products and chemicals that head lice hate. Head Lice can’t rarely attach to our odd shaped hair follicles and when they do it’s usually in less developed Countries with in Africa but rarely outside of Africa. 

Read the below article which explains that Africans get head lice but neglects to explain why as I have already done.

GREAT KiNGS OF AFRICA
featuring GREAT AFRiCAN QUEENS

Tiye - The Nubian Queen of Egypt (ca. 1415-1340 B.C.)

Now it came to pass that in the 14th century B.C., a wise and beautiful woman from Nubia so captured the heart of the pharaoh, she changed the course of history.

Although often invaded for their gold, labor and cattle, and despite being a colonial dominion of Egypt, the Nubians were a proud black people who maintained a strong cultural and political identity for the best part of 5,000 years. So from an early age, Tiye was taught by her parents never to accept second-class status.

Apparently, she learned those lessons well, for the young Egyptian ruler, Amenhotep III, was so taken by her beauty, intellect and will, he defied his nation’s priests and custom by proclaiming this Nubian commoner his Great Royal Spouse. Thus, her future offspring (one of whom was to be the pharaoh Tutankamen) became full heirs to Egypt’s throne, with fully royal and divine inheritances.

Pharaoh Amenhotep III publicly expressed his love for his beautiful black queen in many ways, making her a celebrated and wealthy person in her own right. And he took her counsel in matters political and military much to heart.

As a final gesture of the great regard in which he held Tiye, Amenhotep declared that, as he had treated her in life, so should she be depicted in death…as his equal. And so the colossal sculpture ordered for their joint funerary temple thus portrays them, as a pair of majestic monarchs. Both proud, both noble, both serene.

“You must write about your mothers with dignity. You do not use your modern feminism to measure their pride as women. Write about your mothers with dignity and do not let Westernization eat into your pride. So, let their feminism wear head wraps, let their feminism bow their head, let their feminism not be western educated, let their feminism not even speak english! That does not mean their choices as women during their time is not valid.” Ijeoma Umebinyuo

The ankh also known as key of life, the key of the Nile or crux ansata (Latin meaning “cross with a handle”), was the ancient Egyptian hieroglyphic character that read “life”.
It represents the concept of eternal life, which is the general meaning of the symbol. The Egyptian gods are often portrayed carrying it by its loop, or bearing one in each hand, arms crossed over their chest. #ancientkhemet #Kmt #kush #anhk #Kemet #Hotep #ImHotep #Egyptianhistory #Africanhistory

How to Be Black - Baratunde R. Thurston (AUDIOBOOK): Written by Baratunde R. Thurston
Read by the author
Format: MP3
Bitrate: 64 Kbps

Raised by a pro-black, Pan-Afrikan single mother during the crack years of 1980s Washington, DC, and educated at Sidwell Friends School and Harvard University, Baratunde Thurston has over thirty years’ experience being black. Now, through stories of his politically inspired Nigerian name, the heroics of his hippie mother, the murder of his drug-abusing father, and other revelatory black details, he shares with readers of all colors his wisdom and expertise in how to be black.

Beyond memoir, this guidebook offers practical advice on everything from “How to Be The Black Friend” to “How to Be The (Next) Black President” to “How to Celebrate Black History Month.” To provide additional perspective, Baratunde assembled an award-winning Black Panel—three black women, three black men, and one white man (Christian Lander of Stuff White People Like)—and asked them such revealing questions as: “When Did You First Realize You Were Black?” “How Black Are You?” “Can You Swim?” The result is a humorous, intelligent, and audacious guide that challenges and satirizes the so-called experts, purists, and racists who purport to speak for all black people. With honest storytelling and biting wit, Baratunde plots a path not just to blackness, but one open to anyone interested in simply “how to be.” ______________________________________________________________
