Historian Basil Davidson outlines the overt and covert racism that has frame the European view of African history. This series seeks to open the eyes of those who have been lied to.

In order to help bolster the wholesale dehumanisation of Africans (i.e. the Atlantic Sslave Trade), Europeans in the 1600s and 1700s began to re-create history - surpressing that which was commonly known for centuries before - that Africa was the home to great ancient civilisations, societies and kingdoms.
