African Historian/Author Kulu Jr. has faced racist criticism head on due to his upcoming Novel “I Black Pharaoh: Rise to Power.” Kulu, through his
father Emmanuel Kulu Sr. of Cameroon, embraced his African lineage and decided to share the richness of African history, starting with Ancient Egypt.
Kulu is well known throughout the city for Social Work and his passion for the creative arts. Upon posting his book cover, he received many compliments but also hate mail. For years mainstream media (whether film or novels) have perpetuated the idea that ancient Egypt was not a Black African civilization, but European or Middle Eastern. Upon his thorough research, Kulu made it his mission to bring to light the true African imagery of the ancient Egyptians.
“Many African scholars have debated this for nearly a century, but very few have caught the public’s eye,” stated Kulu. “African history has been misrepresented, whitewashed, and defaced due to Eurocentricism. As you look at the artifacts and statues, it is clear, these people were Black Africans. I will take every challenge and racist comment in order to restore the true history of Ancient Africa. This is not just great for Africans abroad, but History itself.”
Because of his vigilant stance, he has endured several racist posts, comments and mail from those who refuse to accept the fact that “Blacks” were responsible for something great, other than American slavery. Kulu signed a Publishing deal with Pen it Publications in May, to release the novel before Christmas 2019.
