As I read the article about the discovery of this 4,300 years-old Egyptian tomb bursting with colors, I was stunned to see that NO article stated the obvious conclusion: Ancient Egyptians were Black! NO articles stated it: they wonder who the nobleman, Khewi, in whose tomb this was found is, what his link to the Pharaoh is, … they ask a thousand other questions, instead of addressing the reality! This reinstate what we already knew and what the great Cheikh Anta Diop always said, that Ancient Egyptians were black and that their descendants are today’s Subsaharan Africans! One of the statues found inside the tomb beautifully shows its very broad nose, clear symbol of its Black-ness/African-ness, and of course its skin color.  Enjoy! Below are excerpts; for the full article, please go to Fox News.

Egyptian officials announced a stunning discovery over the weekend: a 4,000-year-old tomb of a dignitary bedazzled in colorful paintings and inscriptions.

Egypt’s Ministry of Antiquities unveiled Saturday the ancient resting place of the senior official named “Khuwy, [Khewi in other sources]” noting that he served during the reign of King Djedkare, a pharaoh who ruled Egypt during the Fifth Dynasty — from the late 25th century to early 24th century BC. The next day, the Egyptian government released footage that showcased what it called “exceptionally painted” limestone walls.

The remarkable well-preserved colours on the inscriptions are considered royal colours,” the ministry said in an original video posted online.

[…] “The L-shaped Khuwy tomb starts with a small corridor heading downwards into an antechamber and from there a larger chamber with painted reliefs depicting the tomb owner seated at an offerings table,” Mohamed Megahed, who led a team of archaeologists in digging up the tomb, told the Egyptian newspaper.

Every inch of the tomb is covered in markings, which archaeologists are carefully studying. So far, the inscriptions have raised questions about Khuwy’s impact on the ancient community as well as his specific relationship with the pharaoh — whose elaborate tomb sits just “a stone’s throw away,” per the ministry.

[…] Mostafa Waziri, secretary general of the Supreme Council of Antiquities, called the burial “one of a kind in the last decades.”

The color is almost intact even though the tomb is almost 4,400 years old,” Waziri said in a statement at the time.

  1. Not only were ancient Egyptians black. Egypt wasn’t called Egypt until the Greeks renamed it. If was formally known as Kemet. Ancient discoveries from Mother Africa tells us clearly that civilization started there.

  2. In other news…water is wet.

    Okay, in all seriousness thanks for this article. We all knew people like Dr. Diop were absolutely right about ancient Egypt AKA Khmet. It’s no wonder the Eurocentric historians tried to whitewash everything (no pun intended) with false racial identification and when you had all those statues with the ruined noses since they obviously were African features. Also, the ancient Egyptians were able to trace their lineage down the Nile into Ethiopia even into parts near the Ethiopia/Kenya/Sudan border from what I remember.

    • I like the say at the top of your comment “water is wet”.
      Thank you for sharing these on Egypt and their origin down south.
      We also know that Nubia, to the south of Egypt, has more pyramids than Egypt and had a very flourishing civilization which at one point reigned over Egypt.

      • Thanks! I thought I could use some humor to prove your point.

        No problem, Dr. Y! Those are also great points about history.
