Don’t be fooled, Africa had a well-developed reading culture before the European invasion

Time and Time again, western history has managed to establish many things that are not true about Africa and its history. For many years, modern-day Africans believed that ancient Africa had no writing history until the first explorers of Europen descent settled in the lands. Contrary to popular belief, ancient African societies did have a writing culture.

Even though not as popular as oral history, recent findings have shown that many African civilizations recorded their history through writings and even had well-stocked libraries.

Here is proof that Ancient Africa had a well-established writing culture and libraries.
