The Afro-Indian Connection ~ India’s Black History


Based on recent scientific studies of DNA

African people are the world’s aboriginal people

All modern humans can ultimately

Trace their ancestral roots back to Africa

More than a thousand years before Greece and Rome

Proud Black men and women known as Dravidians

Erected the Indus Valley civilization

India’s earliest high-culture with major cities

Aggressive White tribes known as Aryans invaded

And succeeded in subjugating most of northern India

A rigid, caste-segmented social order was established

With the masses of conquered Blacks (called Shudras)

Essentially reduced to slaves to the Whites
