TEDx Alief features African Historian Emmanuel Kulu

Emmanuel Kuku at Alief TEDx Talk

TEDx Talk: Emmanuel Kulu, Jr. has come a long way from Hip-Hop production, Radio & Film, to a Best-Selling Author & African Historian. But that’s not it. The Buffalo, New York native continues his journey of resiliency regarding African historical enlightenment & re-awareness despite the recent tragic Mass shooting in Buffalo (Tops SuperMarket) that sent shockwaves across the city and globe. 

In a new development, Kulu adds another achievement to his lengthy list of accomplishments; to be featured on the TEDx Talk conference platform. In this excellent opportunity to speak to thousands around the world, Kulu centered the misrepresented history of ‘Mama Africa’ on the stage like no other before him. 

Kulu recalls how he was given the opportunity to be a TEDx speaker, “Speaking on the TEDx stage was a dream come true! I was contacted by my dear friend DEI Executive Netta Jenkins who recommended me as a speaker to the TEDx Alief organizer. As I went through the TEDx speaker training, I knew right away that my talk would cover Africa. The challenge was trying to deliver a message covering four thousand years of untold history in 16 minutes. I locked myself in my basement for hours trying to figure out the best way to deliver an impactful gift of truth. Finally, I laid out the talk in a way that would bring all Humanity into the scope of Africa’s glorious history.” In his talk, Kulu brings to light the Untold truths of African history and its connection with the origins of humanity. “Whether we believe in Science, Biology, Evolution or Creation (The Bible), all roads lead back to Africa! Therefore, this history is not only important to Africans or those of African descent, but it’s also important for All People to know their roots in Africa.” says Kulu.

In this deep thought-provoking, ground-breaking, and historically revealing talk, he challenges a racial bias curriculum that has omitted the key missing piece to the human story, Mama Africa. “What we have is a case of; the tree branch (Common core curriculum of world history) growing so strong only to hate its roots (African history). When in fact, it is not the tree branch that is the strength of the tree, it’s the roots where the real strength lies.” says Kulu.

In 2022, Kulu founded A.A.A.R.I.A (Ancient African Antiquities Research Institute of America), with the mission of creating a Middle & High School curriculum of African studies. This curriculum will provide educational diversity and a new understanding of the inclusion of African studies within World history for educators and students.

When asked about the state of emotions in his hometown with the recent Mass shooting on Buffalo’s East Side he mentioned, “We are a strong City, but we will NEVER forget the names of those Pillars of our Community that we lost. I was personally affected by this tragedy, because my elder sister was in the store when the shooting occurred, I thank God she escaped. Systematic oppression, racism, ignorance, misinformation and miseducation work hand and hand as the root of the problem. This makes my work more and more significant in the times we are living in. As my father used to say, ‘Beyond the Pain, see the Goal!’ and I have made this my thought process in these difficult times.” says Kulu. 

Kulu, Jr., although born in Buffalo, Ny, is of Cameroonian descent (Zulu/Bantu Tribe) by way of his father, Emmanuel Kulu, Sr. As an African Historian, Kulu has traveled (Nationally & Internationally) giving lectures, seminars, and conferences on the miseducation of African history at various high schools, colleges, and universities. “As a human society, we cannot continue to ignore the contribution of Africans and African-Americans to the modern day. My parents raised me to love and embrace my African culture & history, in which I hope to share with the world. My goal is to raise the awareness of the miseducation of Ancient Africa and re-educate in its true context. Black History is World history!” says Kulu. 

Based on his thorough research, Kulu created a historical fiction adventure series based on true events; “I, Black Pharaoh: Rise to Power & “I, Black Pharaoh: Golden Age of Triumph””. These novels were published and released respectively, by Pen it! Publications are set for a relaunch in 2023. Both novels restore the true African imagery of Ancient Egypt (Kemet). 

Beginning in 2023, Kulu is set to campaign his educational tour, “Untold: The Golden Age of Africa” , an extended seminar covering over 5,000 years of African History and Achievement. AAARIA extends this special seminar (In-Person or Virtual) to High Schools, Universities, Colleges, DEI Departments, Museums, Galleries, Detention Centers and Prison Reform programs across the Globe.
