It's a fact:
Unfortunately, most of our people suffer due to a sort of "cultural amnesia".
We can't point to the specific nations from which we descend.
We can't point out our particular ancestral language.
To name our ancestors before the 1600s would be a near-impossible feat.
Dr. Jose Pimienta Bey is a Moorish Sheik, college professor, historian, and author of "Othello's Children in the "New World": Moorish History & Identity In The African American Experience."
In his book Pimienta Bey states:
"... much of the "Black" American experience has been a tragedy, and the tragedy of the "Black" and/or "Negro" experience in America is directly related to the lack of self-knowledge..."
Due to this cultural and historical "amnesia," he refers to the so-called "Black" people as "Amnesiacs."
His rationale for saying this is simple. He quotes:
"You don't know who you are.
Which means you don't know your history.
Which means you have amnesia."
So how does one regain memory of their culture and history when it has been torn away from them?
Well, here's the "bad" news.
Amnesiacs won't be able to cure this cultural amnesia with the current mainstream tools.
Genealogy alone won't work.
Neither will DNA ancestry tests.
So what will cure this amnesia?
The answer to this lies in the methods used to cause amnesia in the first place.
This series is about uncovering HOW past misuses of science to erase the so-called "Black" peoples' memory of themselves.
On the surface, it's easy to explain away:
But the process was much more involved.
It was done in the misuse of specific sciences.
When you finish this series, you'll have a much more precise, grounded, and more scientific understanding of how so-called "Blacks" became "Amnesiacs."

Notice we use the term so-called "Black."
There is a particular reason we refer to these people as so-called "Blacks" rather than "Black."
In Chapter 5 of this series, we dig into the misuse of two sciences, Genealogy and Linguistics, to hide the real history of so-called "Black" people.
What you're about to uncover is well illustrated with Abraham Lincoln's quote during his "Speech at Springfield, Illinois" in 1857.
When discussing the "Negro's" condition of bondage, he states:
"One after another they have closed the heavy iron doors upon him, and now they have him, as it were, bolted in with a lock of a hundred keys, which can never be unlocked without the concurrence of every key; the keys in the hands of a hundred different men, and they scattered to a hundred different and distant places; and they stand musing as to what invention, in all the dominions of mind and matter, can be produced to make the impossibility of his escape more complete than it is."
As Lincoln illustrates, the so-called black man's history has been shattered AND scattered into hundreds (if not thousands) of pieces.
These countless fragments hold vital clues to your ancestry.
The European nations and European slaveholders fragmented this history utilizing science -- many sciences to be precise.
Some of these sciences include:
With so much stacked up against the so-called "Black" man, it's easy to feel all may be lost.
Many honestly think this way. Others are on the fence. And still, many others believe there is still hope in regaining the lost memories of their culture.
But for some, something worst, and more sinister grows.
Day by day, a fear grows greater and greater --
A fear that they'll never be able to know who they are or where they come from truly.
A fear that they'll never be able to put the pieces back together.
They fear that they'll be forever lost.
But what if there WAS a way to regain the lost history of the so-called "Black" people?
What if there's a simple process to do so, only requiring a little time, energy and attention?
We have a seven-step method which walks anyone through the process of uncovering the lost history of the so-called "Black" man or woman.
This process walks you step-by-step through a process of uncovering remarkable clues offered by multiple scientific disciplines.
And it provides you with tools and resources to uncover the so-called "Black" man's ancestors, their cultures and identify what parts of Africa you're from -- all within seven days or less.
We'll share more about this course later on if you're interested.
But first, let's look at one of the sciences, which is seldom understood and ignored by the Amnesiacs, the so-called "Black" people.
Usually, the critical issue most Amnesiacs face is that they don't know from where they descend.
They don't know what part of Africa their ancestors inhabited.
And even if Amnesiacs search for the truth, the distortion of the truth makes the act of learning their African descent even harder.
And due to this, they are lost from the start.
We'll begin peeling back the layers of this issue in the next chapter.
