When doing research on African slavery I came across this video and was surprised about the slave trade in the Middle East, especially around North Africa. This explains the current genocide that is going on in Darfur and the Sudan. I could see the link with the past that this has been going on for 14 centuries. This person wrote this book about slavery in Islamic states. John Alembillah Alembillah Azumah The book is called Legacy of Arab-Islam in Africa: A Quest for Inter-Religious Dialogue. This book reveals the dark secret of Islam and slavery of black people in Africa and the history of how Arab Muslims went to war on and captured black men, women and children and turned them into slaves. While slavery only lasted 3 centuries in the west, it has lasted 14 centuries in the Middle East and exists today in many Muslim countries. He explains the book in this short video and it is very interesting. It explains that when Arab slave traders would raid black villages to the south they would kill the adults and kidnap the children. The boy children were indoctrinated into an Islamic army for the Arabs and the girls were taken as household and sex slaves. The reason their were not that many black descendants in the middle east is because the black male children were castrated so they could not reproduce. There were a few black Africans who grew up and because they curried favor with their masters were allowed to also be slave traders. A very interesting history of black African slave trade and the Muslim Arab world. People need to know this history, BUT instead sadly people will never get enough of watching Souljah Boy dance dude, 50 cent, old Tupac Shakur Rap videos, Britany Spears and other videos and never know the truth, especially white and black converts or reverts. This is part of the legacy of slavery that most African American people should know. Many black converts or reverts do not know this history before they converted believing that they were originally Muslim before they were sold into slavery. They were not. People should research their history before they convert or revert.

Africa Travel Channel Video: The homestead was built more than a hundred years ago, and served as rectory to the local church from the 1950's. Heinz and Helen Meyer bought the farm in 1994, endeavoring to restore its historic splendor. Antique furnishings and tasteful décor ring true to the homestead's Victorian past, while Oregon pine floorboards and high-beamed ceilings reflect its rustic surroundings. An African atmosphere, reed ceilings and scented summer fragrances wafting in from the garden, immerse the spacious patio area, where guests are invited to dine during the long summer months.

April 2008 World Report Segment Since the first branch was organized in Africa in 1853, The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints has spread over the continent. Now with more than 260,000 members, 46 stakes, and three temples, the Church reaches from the southern tip of South Africa north to Morocco and east to Madagascar. On Saturday October 27th 2007, members of the church across Africa joined together for a continent-wide single day service. Wearing the familiar Mormon Helping Hands vests, members served in ways ranging from cleaning streets to painting schools. Their efforts were appreciated by community leaders. The benefits of the many projects were felt by those in the communities across Africa, but the greatest rewards were for those who served. 2008 Intellectual Reserve, Inc. All rights reserved.

April 2008 World Report Segment The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints has joined the effort to improve the health and well-being of people in Africa by helping in the fight to eradicate measles. As recently as eight years ago, measles caused nearly 400 thousand deaths each year in Africa. The Church was approached in 2003 by the American Red Cross—it was in a partnership with the United Nations, World Health Organization and several other organizations—if we would financially support a measles vaccination movement. So from then until now we have provided financial support, but even more importantly we've had thousand of members of the Church involved in helping with these campaigns. Latter-day Saint volunteers have turned out to serve in many areas where measles devastate communities. And the results are measurable. In all of these countries, what they've done is been able to reach more than 90 percent of the target population. So we have seen the incidence of measles drop substantially around the world in the years that the Church has been involved. John Braxton: "Fortunately. The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints and the American Red Cross and other non-governmental organizations have come together to assist the local Red Cross organization, Red Cross and Red Crescent organization, to reach out to their own people. Therefore we've created the greatest of all partnerships. We've got local people who live in this country heading and leading and directing. While on the other hand you have outside people who have a true and genuine interest in overcoming the measles problem that exists." Overall, the number of deaths by measles has fallen dramatically in Africa, with 91 percent fewer deadly cases reported since the year 2000. Worldwide, the Church has assisted in bringing vaccinations to nearly 200 million children. In Africa, it's estimated that 360 thousand lives have been saved. 2008 Intellectual Reserve, Inc.
