    2. Africa is the birthplace of human culture--agricultural science, the domestication of fire, art, science, religion, mathematics, architecture, etc.
    3. The first great civilization was birthed in Africa--the Nile Valley civilization.
    4. The African diaspora (the spread of African people out of Africa) is ancient and occurs long before Africans were enslaved.
