Lol I don't want to make it sound weird but there is so much history in africa left untouched and not spoken about. Sometimes I feel like there an atempt to simply erase it. The pic is amazing

I Love this. I was looking for African warriors and this is the First I came across out of Many that wasn't Naked.
that's all I kept asking myself who drew these and why are they all Naked?
thank you SO much!

This is really nicely made. I've noticed so many people have no idea there have been African empires other than the Egyptian one, so this is really enlightening =)

Well its a huge blindspot of western historiography,  its the tragic heritage of the colonial empires, they did what the could to wipe out African civilizations and the memories of them. Africans still remember, but not the rest of the world (as western historiography has had a long period of global hegemony )
