Nature Knows No Color-Line
Starting with ancient Egypt and coming down through Greece and Rome this book shows what the Negro has contributed, especially to Western Europe civilization, to the present. For instance, there were the Moors, who invaded Europe 711 A.D. and were the dominant power there for the next 500 years. Writings and paintings of those times show them as jet-black and with wooly hair. The Moors gave Europe one of its finest civilizations and rescued it from the Dark Ages. Not only have the Negroes contributed science and art to Europe but since they were once dominant their 'blood' entered into that of the whites and some were ancestors of Europe’s leading families, including royal ones from Italy to Scandinavia.
