Historiography and Methods of African History

Historiography and Methods of African History

Source: Historiography and Methods of African History (Oxford Bibliographies) 2012 A.D. From the source, " Introduction The study of African history as an independent and autonomous focus of scholarship is a recent development. Until the late colonial period, it was widely believed among Western historians that Africa, south of the Sahara, had no “civilization” and thus no history. Others insisted that even if there were events of a historical nature, such a history was unknown and unknowable, since African societies, for the most part, were nonliterate and as such left no records that historians could study. The era of decolonization…

Kedar Meant “dark”, “black skin”, “black skinned man”

Source: Kedar (Study Light) 2021 A.D. From the source, " Kedar = “dark” 1) a son of Ishmael (noun proper masculine) 2) the descendants of Kedar (noun proper people)... (“black skin,” “black skinned man,”) [Kedar], pr.n. of a son of Ishmael, Genesis 25:13 and of an Arabian tribe sprung from him, Song of Solomon 1:5; Isaiah 42:11 (where it is joined with a fem.); 60:7 Jeremiah 49:28; Ezekiel 27:21 more fully called בְּנֵי קֵדָר Isaiah 21:17 by Pliny (H.

The Tribes of Kedar were Dark-Skinned People

The Tribes of Kedar were Dark-Skinned People

Source: The Villages of the Bible: Descriptive, Traditional, and Memorable (UC Southern Regional Library Facility) 1887 A.D. Note: Page 182 of the source. This source reaffirms for us the blackness of the tents of Kedar and Kedar, one of the grandsons of Abraham, himself. This source yet again destroys the notion that some people believe all black people are Hamites because we clearly see that Abraham, who was of Shem, was having black/dark-skinned grandchildren. When someone is being compared to the tents of Kedar or to a Cedar tree, it is because they are an extremely black/dark-skinned person.

Black Jews Along The Niger

Source: Zakhor (Jewish Virtual Library) 2008 A.D. From the source, " ZAKHOR (Heb. "Remember"), black Judaizing movement in Mali comprising around 1,000 people. It was founded in Timbuktu in 1993 by the Malian historian Ismael Daidé Haïdara, whose followers claim to be the offspring of Saharan Jews. In a manifesto published in 1996, the members of Zakhor recognize themselves as Jews and declare themselves to be descendants of the Jews of Touat. The Touat, the region at the limit of the Sahara in western Algeria, was, up to 1492, inhabited by Jews involved in trans-Saharan trade. At that time, Sheikh Abd…

Africa Potentially Gained its Name from a “Mythical” Figure From Yemen

Source: New Encyclopedia of Africa, Volume 1: 'Abd al-Qādir–Cummings-John (Charles Scribner's Sons (Thomson Gale)) 2008 A.D. Note: Page 9 of the source. This source brings up several theories regarding the name of Africa, but the notion that Africa is named after a descendant of Abraham or an individual who came from Yemen stand out. I do believe the Afar people are indeed related to Abraham and/or ancient near eastern peoples because they state their ancestor came from Yemen.
