Clips from the video – CREATING THE BLACKNESS OF AFRICA

Below are few clips from the documentary, all in addressing the essential argument, the false identity of Africans, BLACKNESS.

“The classification of people into different colours is an invention… When I was in Africa, I did not have the conception of people on the basis of colours. We thought we were humans; that we are all humans…,” GRACE FOLLY, Dr. in International Politics & Diplomacy, University of Padova, Italy.

“We should have long refused to be catalogued as Blacks. If they see an Arabic person, they call him an Arab; if he is an Indian, they call him an Indian. It is only an African that somebody deliberately calls the coloured person. Name and surname is what should be used to call a person…,” JEAN-PAUL POUGALA, Professor of Sociology & Geopolitics, School of Diplomacy – Geneva, Switzerland.

“Somewhere in the mind of the westerners, terms like Negros or people of colour denote something negative. When people say Negro or black, it tends to mean a person who has just left savagery. …Africa was not in darkness; Africa was covered up with darkness…,” FRANCO MORETI, Director of Nigrizia, A Missionary Magazine – Verona Italy.

“We have to begin to modify these terminologies because to some people, they have a very strong impact. …In Africa, there were well-organised and orderly societies, but with black, all these were covered up. … Through some terminologies, the identity and what has been the history of a people was denied…,” CÉCILE KYENGE KASHETU, Medical doctor and politician, Emilia Romania, Italy.
