African Americans profess Egypt as 'African' civilisation
"The resentment with which African Americans received the CT scan image of the King Tutankhamen mummy as displayed by the National Geographic was not surprising. African Americans consider the ancient Egyptian civilisation as a 'black' African one, established at the hands of Africans given that it was created in Africa thousands of years before Egypt was conquered by armies from the north and east. They have gone as far as to consider themselves an extension of such a civilisation which they boast of belonging to in the American society." See the article for full details (the Egyptian Gazette pages are not archived, so you will need to look at this page soon if you want to see the complete article).
