This is a book for teachers and scholars, written by a professor of classics at Wellesley College. I wish there were no need for such a book. It is to our national shame both that Afrocentrism has been allowed to flourish inside our schools, but outside the boundaries of the traditional standards of empirical research, and that there has been a need for Afrocentrism to develop in the first place.
The cultures of Northern and Northeastern Africa are frequently attributed to blacks of sub-Saharan African origin. However, this is done more for political reasons than to reflect historical or scientific reality, as the evidence from various fields indicates a predominantly Caucasoid origin for North Africans, with gene flow from Negroids being small and occurring comparatively recently.
This website is a collection of genetic studies, anthropological surveys, scientific research, historical perspectives and illustrative photographs on various topics relating to race and racial origins. Its purpose is to discount the proliferation of pseudo-scholarship that has arisen in Nordicist (White Nationalist), Afrocentric, multicultural and race-abolitionist circles. The accumulated materials are intended only to correct misinformation, not to denigrate any group or advance an agenda. The author holds no special credentials in any of the fields mentioned.
