Excerpt from “Black Inventors, Crafting Over 200 Years of Success”,
Since the beginning of time, Black women have played a key part in the nurturing of ideas, and the use of inventions. In Ancient Egypt (Kamit), Black women, working with science through meditation and trance, and understanding the role of nature in the area of reproduction and cultivation, took simple grasses and developed the grains (wheat, barley, millet and corn) that have fed the world for thousands of years. Black women’s keen insight into mundane and spiritual laws, continues to give them the ability to assume the roles of queen mothers, chiefs, priestesses, presidents, heads of state, prime ministers, mayors, senators, congresswomen, leaders, businesswomen, doctors, lawyers, healers, scientists and inventors in their societies. All great civilization can be measured by their treatment of women and the education of the children.
