HOTEP,I was reading some of the previous forums absorbing our nation building, when I came across someone mentioning Dr.Ben saying that Alkebulan is the original name of AFRICA, & THAT's IT.Well,for those who are NOT informed,Dr.Yosef BEN Jochannan is one of our most KNOWLEDGEABLE SCHOLARS OF the MOTHER CONTINENT; A MASTER TEACHER WHO IS ALL ABOUT SHOWING & PROVING & NOT JUST SPEAKING RHETORIC. This quote is from his book titled CULTURAL GENOCIDE IN THE BLACK & AFRICAN STUDIES CURRICULUM,pg 44 :
*Among the many names ALKEBU-LAN [the "mother of mankind"] or the "garden of Eden" was called are the following:
"ETHIOPIA, CORPHYE, ORTEGIA, LIBYA, & "AFRICA" LATEST of all."ALKEBU-LAN" is the OLDEST, and the only one of INDIGENOUS ORIGIN. It was used by the Moors, Nubians, Numidians, Khart-Haddans [Carthagenians] and Ethiopians. "Africa" the current misnomer adopted by almost everyone today, was given to this continent by the ancient Greeks & Romans.***
Mind you, Dr.BEN is WELL TRAVELED & BUILDS with the VARIOUS COMMUNITIES OF ALKEBU-LAN, so trust me, HE KNOWS WHAT it is he is SAYING. Ase.
