Hans Bader’s daughter is learning world history — the politically correct version — in third grade, he writes on Liberty Unyielding. Our World Far and Wide, by Five Ponds Press, lists three great civilizations: Greece, Rome and Mali.
In black Africa, “Mali was far less significant than ancient Ethiopia (sometimes called the ‘cradle of mankind‘),” writes Bader.
Ancient Egypt was one of the world’s great civilizations — and some pharoahs were black, Bader writes. So why feature the short-lived empire of Mali?
The book also profiles seven great Americans: Washington, Jefferson, Lincoln, Martin Luther King Jr., Thurgood Marshall, Rosa Parks and Cesar Chavez.
