“This accomplishment brings the greatest honor to the black race and merits, from the view point, all our attention. In the 16th Century, the Songhay land awoke. A marvelous growth of civilization mounted there in the heart of the Black continent…And this civilization was not imposed by circumstances, nor by an invader, as is often the case even in our own day. It was desired, called forth, introduced and perpetuated by a man of the Black race.”
