Event description

Description

‘What happened to the Black people of Sumer?’ The traveller asked the old man … ‘They lost their history so they died,’ the old man replied. (A Sumer legend)
The study of history is not just a collection of dates and facts. It is a guide we can use today, to help us navigate through life and change tomorrow. We can learn lessons from the mistakes of the past, so we do not repeat them. But also it becomes difficult to deny humanity, take away a person’s culture or call one person an ‘immigrant’ and the other ‘native,’ if we know about history. Ignorance is a fertile ground for injustice and prejudice.
Join Onyeka and Narrative Eye as we champion knowledge and historical research to find the missing pages of history.
