According to Colonial Academia, cultural evolution falls under 3 categories: Savage, Barbaric, & Civilized. Because these were the phases the Caucasians evolved from, they argued all human societies progressed through these stages.
1) Savage: Hunters & Gatherers
2) Barbaric: Husbandry & Agriculture
3) Civilized: Writing, Reading, Science, & Math
As they learned Colonist added 3 stages of civilization.
1) Military society
2) Legal society
3) Industrial society
Well if this is all the case, Proto Saharan artifacts already proved Africans developed a writing script before the the Mesopotamian civilizations of Akkad or Sumer were even conceived. Also the history of language, religious vocabulary, and the science of spirituality was founded on Husbandry & Agriculture and can only be depicted & displayed in full spectrum via African speech & African artifacts. Furthermore, the root word in Primitive is Prime.
With that being said, large steps for mankind has contributed to bounce back leaps for humanity. I say this because the first Homo Sapiens Sapiens walked up right and migrated out of Africa as Hunters & Gathers and everywhere we went we left works of art. Cave paintings depicting melenated beings can be traced all over the word proving African’s with their primitive technologies were the first people to circumnavigate the planet as they planted the grass roots of this thing here; what you call Civilization.
Military? Before the Germanic tribes of western European ascended into Rome bring her to Ruins, Africans. like the military genius Hannibal, already had troops in formation. Before many indigenous tribes had ever seen a blond hair, blue eyed Pirate, tribal leaders like the Zulu Nation’s had their own military tactics Caucasians later adopted.
In fact, the world’s very first treaty was discovered in the tomb of an ancient African, the Hittite-Egyptian Peace Treaty. Also the world oldest documented Legal System is found in Africa, in Ta Seti Nubia, known as The Law of Ma’at.
As if I haven’t stressed this enough, I can not forget to mention the African invention of reed boats ancient Ta Meri of Kemet usded (since at least 4000 b.c.e), which can carry 100 tons, easy. If that doesn’t spell out trade-commerce & industry enough, then I have to remind you that Africans have been mining, melting, and molding minerals such as Gold since before biblical history and the land before time. We can not say the same for any other race, continent, or civilization. Is this civil enough for western academia? It is fair to say, civilization was developed by Africans, in Africa.
The Continent of Africa is in the shape of the number 9. It was formed in a spiral format. The center of the Spiral is located near Lake Chad in the ancient Nok Civilization, home of ILE IFE, on the Benue River. Benue is an African word that means Human Being. The word Benue spread all the way around the world, from Benue to Manu, this is the origin of the word Man. The Benue River stems from the Niger River, the word Niger comes from [GER-N-GER & NGORO-NGORO], meaning the Light of Life. Right there, in Africa, is the true Fertile Crescent and from Lake Chad to the Great Lakes of Nyaza is the Cradle of Civilization.
