29 Historic Places For Black History Month: Great Pyramids of Giza

Great Pyramids of Giza

February 14th, 2016

why was it historic? 

    >      Yeah we’re taking it waay back on this one. This one does not involve American Slavery, Discrimination or Segregation. This one is simply referring back to a time when WE we’re Kings & Queens. First let’s please address the rumor and Misinformed sensationalism the people who built and lay peacefully inside The Pyramids of Giza are indeed Black or Dark Skinned, not sandy brown like the Egyptians you see today. These Pyramids were indeed built roughly 4600 years ago. The Egyptians of this era we’re known for their advanced civilization and their hieroglyphics (Egyptian Picture Writing) which allowed us to peak into the past and learn more about these early Africans. The Great Pyramids of Giza were believed to be tombs for the Pharaohs of Egypt as well other Egyptian Nobility.  

    >       There are over 140 Pyramids in the area  surrounding the 3 Great Pyramids of Giza. Their names ranging from Biggest to Smallest are Khufu, Khafre & Menkaure. Khufu stands at a height of 455 feet but due to the Egyptian surface (dessert sand) it has shrunk 33 feet from an original height of 481 feet. Perhaps one of the most famous inhabitants of the Ancient Egypt was the Egyptian boy king. Known to the world as King Tut or king Tutankhamen his tomb was discovered on November 22, 1922 and has been the predominant figure and face of the Ancient Egyptian era. Even though he was not mummified or buried in one of the 3 Great Pyramids of Giza. He was/is in fact laid to the rest in the Valley of the Kings in Luxor, Eygpt. The Great Pyramids of Egypt represented a time when the Ancient Egyptian Civilaization thrived and taught the rest of the world Math, Engineering and Writing just to name a few (shout out to Imhotep).

>        Basically, The Great Pyramids of Egypt one of the 7 wonders of the world, represents greatness, ingenuity and and a sense of personal reflection. Allowing the builders to always have something to aspire to & always remind them of their successes as a Civilization. This is definitely one of the places i would like to visit before i leave this earth. No one can deny it’s pace in history. This Civilization was created and maintained By Africans, Black Men and Women. They were Architects, Writers, Philosophers, teachers, Doctors & Etc. They covered the full spectrum of a society. The world learned a lot from you guys, believe that #Thankyou.
