At the Pope Center website is an excellent, though sad, article on one professor’s efforts to keep her sanity in the face of the onslaught of “Afrocentric” history.
Mary Lefkowitz shows that there are some who won’t let the truth get in the way of their efforts at indoctrinating students.
The issue she faced: Afrocentrists claim that the culture and philosophy of the ancient Greeks was not truly their creation, but was “stolen” from Egypt. Since Egypt is in Africa and all the people in Africa are “black” this means that white Europeans were victimizing blacks more than 2400 years ago. In one particularly ludicrous aspect of this myth, it is asserted that Aristotle journeyed to the Library at Alexandria and stole books that he later claimed as his own works.
