Reconstructing the Ancient Black Presence In The Northern Regions of Africa and The Ancient Near East (ANE)

Reconstructing the Ancient Black Presence In The Northern Regions of Africa and The Ancient Near East (ANE)

The reason why I try to gain so many pieces of evidence that tell of the Moors, Arabs, ancient bloodline Jews/Israelites, Berbers, Egyptians, Numidians, Garamantes, Imazighen, the Nabit people, and other groups having a consistent black presence in ancient and medieval time periods is for several reasons. To begin, some Eurocentric scholars and historians believe the only reason why black people are in the northern regions of Africa and in Arabia is due to the Arab Slave Trade (even though millions of white people were taken captive and shipped to these areas over several centuries, as well). Furthermore, I want…

The Black Jews of Timbuktu (Mali)

The Black Jews of Timbuktu (Mali)

Source: Shavei.org (Shavei Israel) There are approximately 1,000 people with alleged Jewish roots in Timbuktu, Mali. They arrived in the 14th century fleeing persecution in Spain, and migrated south to the Timbuktu area, at that time part of the Songhai Empire. Among them was the Kehath (Ka’ti) family, descended from Ismael Jan Kot Al-yahudi of Scheida, Morocco. Sons of this prominent family founded three villages that still exist near Timbuktu—Kirshamba, Haybomo, and Kongougara. In 1492, Askia Muhammed came to power in the previously tolerant region of Timbuktu and decreed that Jews must convert to Islam or leave; Judaism became illegal…
