 Descent and their Associates Achieve 
 Lasting Success in Africa and America

      (UNESCO) Symposium on The Peopling of Ancient Egypt

      and the Decifering of Meroitc Script, a 7-day conference,

      held in Cairo, Egypt*.    

   - *Diop and Congolese Theophle Obenga went up against

       20 of the best/brightest international experts on ancient

       civilization and provided irrifutable proof of the

       southern/African origins of Egyptian civilzation. This has

       been the only time the subject has been formally debated

       among worlwide panel of experts. Below is the statement

       of the U.N. Rapporteur in the Symposium's Summary


       "Although the preparatory working paper sent out by 

        UNESCO gave particulars of what was desired, not all

        participants had prepared communications comparable

        with the painstakingly researched contributions of

        Professors Cheikh Anta Diop and Obenga."
