In the first episode of Out of Darkness film narrator Kaba Kamene introduces the idea of a “War on African History” as an attempt to hide, conceal, and diminish the contribution of African people in world history. The chapter explains the psychological disassociation with Africa in the minds of African-Americans as a result of this conditioning as a means of suppressing the potential in African people.
The second part of this episode begins to detail some of the most significant omissions of the African contribution to world history, exploring the African presence in Ancient America, proposing that Africans were the indigenous peoples of the Americas. Also discussed is the cover up of the African origins of Nile Valley Civilization, specifically Ancient Egypt, as an attempt to claim the world’s first and greatest civilization, and to place its origins outside of Africa.
Out of Darkness is narrated by Prof. Kaba Kamene and co-stars Dr. Umar Johnson, Dr. Claud Anderson, Tim Wise, Prof. James Small, Dr. Joy DeGruy, Anthony Browder, Sabir Bey, Atlantis Browder, and Taj Tarik Bey.
