Zumbi dos Palmares College in Brazil is giving students a “black box” which contains the pages of history that’s often overlooked.


This promo points out that the inventions and practices of Africans aren’t often talked about. Often, the narrative of the history of the world is very Euro-centric and treats Africa as an afterthought. Some of the world’s most important inventions were created in Africa hundreds of years before Western countries came up with them.

This university is giving every student one of these boxes to let them know the profound impact that Africa and black people have had in the world over the course of history. It’s an amazing project that shines a light on how certain elements of history are erased from the pages. Not only will the box help students learn more about their own history, but this ad will also help to educate people the world over about the importance of Africa in the history of our planet.
