  • I suggest attracting a lot more Africans to the site and not just diaspora to get more specific and nuanced information and discussion. A lot of information even about famous tribes is not available on the internet or available in English. Also there are many topics that can only be brought up by Africans such as proto languages, linguistic similarities and their implications on migration and history, proverbs and sayings or clan poetry etc.
  • Hello everybody, and hi Jabari! Sword of Africa directed me to this forum, so here I am. I just liked to say I enjoy the From Nothing Youtube channel. It's refreshing to see that kind of playful, yet serious content. Anyway, I've been active on the Wildfire Games forum (the guys from 0 A.D., Empires Ascendant) since late 2016, as the lead researcher behind our latest playable civilization: The Kingdom of Kush. 0 A.D. is a free and open-source, cross-platform, Real Time Strategy game, aiming for historical accuracy, set in the time from 500 BC to 1 BC. I wrote an updated and comprehensively illustrated article outlining the History of Kush, and this article contains the largest collection of high quality and relevant reference images of Archaeological sites, artefacts, reliefs, historical reconstructions and art available on the internet, as well as providing a full run-down of the history. Kushites kind of re-write African history... The lost cornerstone. Considering that the Kingdom Kush is essentially the earliest chapter in black civilization, I thought it would interesting for you guys to check out. The material in the article would make one heck of a video ;) https://wildfiregames.com/forum/index.php?/topic/21602-the-kingdom-of-kush-a-proper-introduction-illustrated/ In game screenshots and concept art by Lordgood (Queen Amanirenas and temple guards) (the last image are two collaborations between myself and a friend):
