    The Manuscripts of Timbuktu.

    For Centuries it was taught that Africa & Africans had no written history, literature or philosophy (claiming Egypt was other than African). In this picture we see  1 MILLION manuscripts that were found in the many Libraries of Timbuktu/Mali covering , according to Reuters “all the fields of human knowledge: law, the sciences, medicine,”. Some of the Manuscripts date back to the 13th Century.

    This is just one of many examples of written word in Africa which is the most culturally and ethnically diverse continent on the planet.
