Below are links to articles and videos related to African History. Read with an open mind, eyes, and heart. Learn to think critically and not to regurgitate. The Purpose of the History Building, like any good Library is to provide visitors with various sources, views, and opinions, it is up to the visitor to decide what their truth is.

*One thing that is not debatable is that the oldest human body was found in 1992 “Ardi” who is 4.4 millions years old, previously in 1974 “Lucy” was thought to be the oldest at  3.2 million years old, both were found in Ethiopia, we will let you make your own conclusions.  Black History is African History and did not start the day Africans were stolen from Africa!
