At the foundation of civilization is the melanated mind, just about everything you see around you was either inspired by, invented by, or originated by a Black man or woman. Although, many try to conceal or ignore this undeniable truth, books like Black People Invented Everything by Dr. Sujan Kumar Dass (Supreme Understanding) expose “the deep history of Indigenous creativity”.
Most of the things you use on a daily basis are the inventions of black people. The air conditioner, the automatic gear shift, the automatic traffic light, the bicycle frame, the cell phone, the clock, the almanac, the clothes dryer, the electric lamp bulb, the guitar, the mailbox, the motor, the refrigerator, the stove, the telephone, the thermostat control, the toilet, the world’s fastest computer and the list goes on and on.
This is just in modern times, this isn’t even including ancient history yet.
When you look at the collective effort of melanated minds you will see that Black people did invent everything indeed. I mean would you expect anything less of the Original people?
If Black people are the “Original” humans, the archetype of humanity, then it makes perfect sense how you will see melanated minds at the origin of everything: agriculture, animal breeding, architecture, art, astronomy, business and trade, cash and currency, ceramics, clothing, dance, economics, healthcare, housing, jewelry, mail, mathematics, medicine, metalworking, mining, music, pottery, science, shoes, spoken language, sports, technology, and written language.
Although this information is great to celebrate it is even better to be empowered by it. I mean really think about what this means for you as a black man or woman. What can’t you do? What can’t you make? Why can’t you find a way?
Our nature is to create and manifest.
Black People Invented Everything by Dr. Sujan Kumar Dass (Supreme Understanding) is one of the most powerful summaries of our total and collective accomplishments as melanated people. This book should be mandatory reading for all schools who claim to teach Black History, and it should also be in every personal library of every black man and woman in the world.
Knowledge is power, but to know thyself is even more powerful.
