Africa it’s said “is the cradle of mankind, the origin of the world’s religion and civilization”. I wonder, where did we lost our way?
In his book, “world’s great men of color,” J.A. Rogers, gives this description: “out of the mists of 3,000 years, emerges this beautiful story of an African queen who, attracted by the fame of a Judean monarch, made a long journey to see him.” Makeda and King Solomon were equally impressed with each other. The Queen of Sheba is said to have undertaken a long and difficult journey to Jerusalem to learn from the wisdom of the great king Solomon. Now I wonder, if the African Queen was not powerful, not a lover of wisdom and wise too, would King Solomon be impressed by her? Enough to grant her such accord as was written in the bible and in the books of history?
