Rise of the Black Pharaoh

Around 800 BC, Kush, a little-known subject state of Egypt, rose up and conquered the Egyptians, enthroned its own Pharaohs, and ruled over the empire of King Tut for nearly 100 years.

This unlikely chapter of history has been buried by the Egyptians and belittled by early archaeologists, who refused to believe that dark skinned Africans could have risen so high.

But now, in the heart of Sudan, archeologists Geoff Emberling and Tim Kendall are bringing the truth about the Black Pharaohs to life. In a royal tomb beneath an ancient Kush pyramid and at the soaring heights of a mountain sacred to both Kushites and Egyptians, they are finding indisputable evidence of an advanced African society with powerful armies, vast reach, and spiritually-driven imperial aspirations that rival the Egyptians'.

Nice Segment but....
Review by Syd on 01/15/22 review stating Nice Segment but....
I thought that this would delve into who the Pharoahs were a lot more than it did and that was disappoiting. I also thought there should have been less with the White archeologists, less with the young girls scaling the mountain and more of what the story was supposed to be about. I found out more information Googling the Kushites than this piece even remotely touched on. So what was the point of producing this because it just seemed like a vanity piece for the archeologists?

The DVD is worthless to me. No clear picture, starting and stopping You probably know what I am talking about. You have probably seen the same thing on DVDs.

I have travelled to Kush many times, but this DVD gave me new information. I appreciate the effort and resources that went into its creation.

Amazing documentary
Review by Hag on 07/17/20 review stating Amazing documentary
This is really a great piece of documentary about the ancient kingdom of Kush. It shows how this forgotten civilization has ruled the Nile valley till the Mediterranean. What is amazing is how Egyptians have tried all the time to ignore the great history of Sudan in their history books. They have regularly tried to insult Sudan through lying and conspiracies to present the ugly side of Sudan to the rest of the world. You can lie for a while, but you cannot hide the truth forever as you cannot hide the sun light.
