AUTHOR EMMANUEL KULU BRINGS A NEW PERSPECTIVE TO ANCIENT EGYPTIAN HISTORY IN HIS NOVEL "I, BLACK PHAROAH RISE TO POWER"

Buffalo, NY -- Author/ African historian Emmanuel Kulu, Jr. has faced racism for his controversial novel, I, Black Pharaoh: Rise to Power. In early 2019, Kulu began his campaign restoring the true African origins of Ancient Egypt. Upon posting his book cover via social media, Kulu received massive amounts of death threats, racist comments, and hate emails regarding the cover.

"I was constantly called a monkey, nigger, slave and accused of stealing history and black washing Ancient Egypt. This happened so often that it made me want to give up, I felt discouraged and figured that the world is not opening minded enough to expect the deceptions of past. My father, Emmanuel Kulu, Sr. advised me to continue the path of truth and understand those who oppose are unaware to the knowledge you have acquired in your studies," said Kulu.

Following the death of his father on September 27th, 2019, Kulu recalled the words of his father and continued his campaign of lectures titled, "The Mystery of Ancient Africa: A Stolen Legacy restored". Mr. Kulu has given many seminars and lectures in schools like the University of Buffalo, Malcolm X College, Buffalo State College, UCLA, and many other Universities and high schools. Upon his thorough research, Kulu uncovered that the original people of Egypt did not resemble those of European/ Mediterranean decent.
