This is the site for "When We Ruled," written by Robin Walker that includes a list of 100 things that you didn't know about Africa; a list of 100 of the greatest Black history books; 50 greatest African rulers; links on African history; and much more. In addition to what's on the site, this book provides illustrations, photographs, maps, drawings, and synthesis of the archaeological data, the documentary evidence, and the historical linguistic research of ancient and medieval history of Black people. It recounts the fascinating story of the origin and development of indigenous civilisations across the vast panorama of the African continent. In particular, the author answers the key question in Black history: How much documented history is there beyond the Slave Trade, Mary Seacole, and Malcolm X? In 713 pages that question is answered again and again with a vast array of evidence that explodes the widely held view that Africans were without historical distinctions. In particular, there are ancient and medieval monuments that are still standing all over Africa. In addition, there are Black families and institutions that still possess their medieval manuscripts. The history of Black people cannot be divorced from the history of peoples on other continents particularly Asia, Europe, and the Americas. Topic areas that have traditionally been ignored, such as Black Women's history, early African science and technology, and the two-way influences between Africa and Europe, are also discussed. What is remarkable about this work is that for the first time it dares to connect Egypt, and its cultural affinities, with Africa and its chronological timeline within the vast chronology (nearly 90,000 years) of African achievement. It is now untenable for Egyptologists to consider themselves to be experts on Egypt without understanding the African cultural signature embedded within Ancient Egypt and its long history.
