The African History, they don't tell you about

"Nothing would be what it is, because everything would be what it isn't. And contrary-wise - what it is, it wouldn't be. And what it wouldn't be, it would. You see?"

- Alice in Wonderland

History has not been kind to the people and the countries of the vast and beautiful continent, called Africa. The images and the real history and culture of the people there has been distorted, manipulated and destroyed and a new manufactured image has been presented in its place. This distorted stereotype (history re-write) continues today. Why? For the answer you must ask the question "who benefits"?
