Apartheid in the Caribbean - This Is Africa. Two nations share an island in the Caribbean.
One is Haiti, which has suffered earthquakes, been recently exposed to cholera, and dealt with relentless ignorance about its culture and people. It has often been portrayed as a place of dire poverty and associated with a distorted, sinister version of the vodou religion. (Ironically, the country has a proud history – it was the site of the great slave uprising led by Toussaint L’Ouverture, and the independent state of Haiti was born from the ashes of French colony Saint-Domingue.
It was the world’s first black republic.) Nigerian scientist receives patent for converting urine to flammable gas - This Is Africa. Ejikeme Patrick Nwosu got the patent for developing a process of converting human urine into “hydrogen-ammonia-rich flammable gases and fire resistant materials”, reported Nigeria’s The Guardian.

This 99-Year-Old Woman Makes A New Dress Every Single Day For A Child In Need. 10 things that every person needs to know about King Tut. By Marie Seva Tutankhamun or Tutankhamen or Tutankhamon or more commonly referred to as King Tut, was an Egyptian pharaoh who was enthroned at a very young age.
He ruled the Egyptians for about 10 years from 1332 BC to 1323 BC during a period known as the New Kingdom (based on Egyptian history). Though his rule began early in his life, he was also considerably young when it ended. Hathor. Hathor (/ˈhæθɔr/ or /ˈhæθər/; Egyptian: ḥwt-ḥr and from Greek: Άθωρ, "mansion of Horus") is an Ancient Egyptian goddess who personified the principles of joy, feminine love, and motherhood. She was one of the most important and popular deities throughout the history of Ancient Egypt.
Hathor was worshiped by Royalty and common people alike in whose tombs she is depicted as "Mistress of the West" welcoming the dead into the next life. In other roles she was a goddess of music, dance, foreign lands and fertility who helped women in childbirth, as well as the patron goddess of miners. The cult of Hathor predates the historic period, and the roots of devotion to her are therefore difficult to trace, though it may be a development of predynastic cults which venerated fertility, and nature in general, represented by cows. Hathor is commonly depicted as a cow goddess with horns in which is set a sun disk with Uraeus. Early depictions Temples Hesat Notes HEBREW TRIBE OF LEVI FOUND IN WEST AFRICA !!!!! MAPS!!!!!!!!!!!

THE AFRICAN TRADITIONAL HERBAL RESEARCH CLINIC NEWSLETTERS. Why are schools punishing children for speaking African languages? In various schools in Uganda, and some other parts of Africa, children as young as five are punished for speaking African languages, indigenous languages and mother tongues at school.
