Black Kingdoms of the Nile
Gates embarks on an epic journey through Egypt and Sudan in search of ancient Nubia -- an ancient African civilization which once rivaled Egypt. Pyramids, ruined temples and royal tombs survive the deserts of Sudan. And along the Nile lie the ruins of an ancient Nubian capital the oldest city so far uncovered in the whole of Africa.
The Swahili Coast
Gates travels along the palm-fringed coast of Kenya and Tanzania and on to the legendary island of Zanzibar. The journey presents an intriguing historical puzzle: Who are the Swahili people? Are they Truly African? On the idyllic island of Lamu, Gates finds people proud of their Arab ancestry only, believing their civilization owes little to Africa. On Zanzibar, two encounters -- one with the Canon of the Anglican Cathedral and the other with a black descendant of Zanzibar's most notorious slave traders -- give him an insight into the Swahilis' troubled and bloody history.
(My Love & Pride) The Africa They Never Show You.
The artist in me cannot help but create & express myself. So I decided to combine my passion for ART & MUSIC to express the love, pride and respect that I have for Mama Africa.
I hope that everyone who decides to view or share the video will also show love & respect for Africa & its awesome diversity of beautiful people.
Kind Request: Keep it PEACEFUL. The idea is to promote integration & encourage UNITY & ONENESS.
I also came across a comment/response on this video that someone had made showing the beauty of the African continent as a whole. I really loved this profound words and so I am going to share that response with everyone. It reads;
"It will be a beautiful day when Africans learn to respect and care for each other as they so emphatically like to care for foreigners. Then maybe, we can actually start to take care of each other and the millions of Africans scattered all over the globe, rather than always depending on people outside the continent to help us."
I love it!!!

African & Proud!
The Beautiful Continent of AFRICA: Video showcases the beautiful side of Africa media refuses to show.
A little of what WE, THE PLACES WE LIVE IN, & OUR BEAUTIFUL CULTURES are REALLY like that media could choose to market, but rather chooses to keep from the public.
Home of VASTLY diverse beautiful peoples—and equally VASTLY diverse cultures, all different, but yet still beautiful.
