The skeletal remains, mummies, hair, and art of the ancient Egyptians show that they were similar to Nubians. The art of the ancient Egyptians shows that had the same variation in facial features and complexion that we see in Nubian art. It cannot be denied that the ancient Egyptians and Nubians belonged to the same race. This is a continuation of the work of Professor Cheikh Anta Diop using mainly information that was not available in his time.
"A needed view"
What is more impressive: to become a king having come from a long lineage of kings, or to become a king having come from a long lineage of the enslaved? In the ninth and 10th centuries, enslaved East Africans were brought to the Ziyadid kingdom of Yemen. By the later 10th century they had become the prime ministers of the kingdom.
This book demonstrates that the builders of Southeast Asia's first civilizations were black people of Australo-Melanesian and Negrito type. This book does for Southeast Asian civilization what Professor Cheikh Anta Diop did for Egyptian civilization: it demonstrates it was been built by black people. The genius of Diop's demonstration is that he quoted the leading experts of the field to clearly make his case, even though the experts in question would have opposed his black origins position.
The Peshtigo Fire of 1871 might fairly be called America's forgotten disaster. Overshadowed by the much better-covered and publicized Great Chicago Fire that occurred on the same evening, the fire that started in the Wisconsin logging town of Peshtigo generated a firestorm unlike anything in American history.
"Terror in the Northwoods"
Of all the Native American leaders who attempted to resist the westward expansion of the United States and further white settlement during the 19th century, few fought as long or as hard as Black Hawk, a leader of the Sauk in the present-day Midwest. Though he is no longer as well known as his contemporary Tecumseh,or subsequent Native American leaders like Sitting Bull, Crazy Horse, and Geronimo, his eventual surrender and trip east as a prisoner turned him into one of the first Native American celebrities in the country.
After eating turkey over Christmas and Thanksgiving you could be forgiven if you never wanted to see a slice, or leg of turkey ever again, but this book is packed full of tasty turkey recipes, whether it is turkey leftovers or the leg that normally gets left until last.
For more than half a century, generations of hockey fans in northeast Iowa have given their allegiance to the Waterloo Black Hawks. Few realize that decades before the Black Hawks arrived, a long forgotten club captivated Waterloo during the late 1920s, playing in front of crowds even larger than those who come to the rink today, and beating teams from Chicago, the Twin Cities, and Canada. The Legion Team: Forgotten Hockey in Waterloo, 1927-1930, seeks to revive the memories of this overlooked era.
Hockey sprang to life in Waterloo, Iowa, when the Black Hawks and the United States Hockey League arrived in 1962. Immediate success on the ice allowed the franchise to put down deep roots. Paul Johnson, Jim Coyle, Bill Dobbyn, and a full cast led the Hawks to five consecutive championships in the 1960s against rival teams featuring players like Herb Brooks, Bill Masterton, and Paul Coppo. The Hawks' early accomplishments built a tradition that helped the sport through many leaner seasons in Waterloo.
In addition to its wealth of cultural sights, the European Alps offer a wider range of outdoor recreation than any other similarly-sized region in the world. Adventurers of all ages hike hut-to-hut on multi-day treks, skiers slide year-round on glacial slopes, and Sunday walkers stroll forested trails. Bikers loop icy blue lakes, and mountaineers scale up waterfalls and down canyon cliffs. Modern adventurers run the gamut from rich to poor, young to old, and native to transient foreigner.
