Our True and Documented Story
Evidence of Judah on Africa’s West Coast During the Slave Trade
This is a close up view of West Africa on a 1747 map close to the coast... where the Trans Atlantic Slave Trade took place.
Look towards the right on the picture and you will see an area called the Kingdom of Juda (Km of Juda) just above the words Slave Coast. And if you look closer, you will also see a town called Juda (Whidah) close to the coast. Whidah was what Europeans called them.
We must understand that there originally was no “J” sound in the English language. There is nor never has been a “J” sound in older languages such as Biblical Hebrew or Greek.
The town of Juda is now called "Ouidah" and is situated about 50 miles from present day Benin.
I don’t normally quote Wikipedia but they even admit that Ouidah was originally Judah.
Furthermore, we can obviously conclude that if there was not a “J” sound, then it was not pronounced “Judah”, but probably sounded more like A-Whidah. And Wikipedia also says it was called “Ajudá by the Portuguese...”
Rabbi Akwetey B. Amaah - a descendant of the Biblical tribe of Gad, and Mawuli Mawuvi - a descendant of the tribe of Judah both confirm the migration of Judah from Israel - by way of the Roman-Hebrew war in 66-70 AD - to Africa’s west coast.
(At the bottom there is an hour long video of Rabbi Akwetey B. Amaah of Ghana detailing the complete migration to the west coast of Africa)
And to the left of Judah on the 1747 map you will see the Tooth Coast, here is what Wikipedia said about the name:
Originally, Portuguese and French merchant-explorers in the 15th and 16th centuries divided the west coast of Africa, very roughly, into four "coasts" reflecting local economies. The coast that the French named the Côte d'Ivoire and the Portuguese named the Costa do Marfim—both, literally, mean "Coast of Ivory"—lay between what was known as the Guiné de Cabo Verde, so-called "Upper Guinea" at Cap-Vert, and Lower Guinea.
Brief but very important summary of true Black history that you won't hear about in school.
Bringing everything into proper context... Here we go...
The Children of Israel were flushed out of the land of Canaan, the country known as Israel today, fleeing persecution, slavery and starvation from the Romans in the Jewish-Roman War 66-70 A.D., which marked the end of the original Hebrew Israelites as a nation.
**Many don't know that the country of Israel (formally Canaan) still is, and always has been in the continent of Africa.
The term "Middle East" only refers to a region. Remember, there are still only 7 continents...the Middle East is not an 8th continent. Israel is in the continent of Africa.
Actually Europe is not a “continent” by definition - (a large land mass surrounded mostly by water). Europeans (Greeks) decided to “make” Europe a continent in the 6th century BC. But according to the definition of the word, the original and correctcontinent is Asia.
Many schools are changing their textbooks to teach correctly that there are really 6 continents.
When you attempt to look up the definition of the word continent, you will mostly get a bunch of examples or listings of the seven continents. You may have to do some digging to answer your question of what actually makes a large land mass a "continent"??
Here is Webster's list of examples as their definition: Continent
Regressing back to the subject...
The Israelites who did manage to survive the Hebrew-Roman war of 70AD were mostly of the Kingdom of Judah.
After king Solomon died the original kingdom of Israel (twelve tribes) split into two kingdoms; the northern kingdom (ten of the twelve tribes), who kept the name Israel, and the southern kingdom (two tribes), called Judah (1 Kings 12 & 2 Chron 10).
By the time of this Hebrew-Roman war, the northern kingdom called Israel had already been taken captive by the Assyrians in 722 BC (2 Kings 15:29, 16:9), and are to this day referred to as the "ten lost tribes".. (They are called "lost" only because mainstream refuse to consider Africa or people looking like Africans) Which left only the "southern kingdom", or "Judah" - which the Bible translates as "Jews".
The Hebrew word translated as Jew in the Bible is the Hebrew word Yehudah, which is Judah or Judaite (Strong's #3064), referring to the southern kingdom of Israel.
The word Jew in the Bible had absolutely nothing to do with "Judaism". It was all about bloodline.
The attacking Romans came from the north, so any Israelites still living in the northern kingdom, or Israel, were attacked first. The escaping Israelites, mostly of the southern kingdom, or Judah, migrated south and west on deeper into Africa ...in the opposite direction of the attacking Roman army.
The farther west they went, the safer they believed they were since the Romans were coming from the east and north (Rome, Italy).
They migrated all throughout Africa and many ended up on Africa's west coast. Africa's west coast was considered to be the safest place in the world at that time for them.
• Africa as it looks today with all those countries was created by Europeans in 1884. In that year, European powers met in Berlin, Germany and demarcated the continent among themselves. The demarcation gave birth to the Africa you see on the maps today. So you cannot look at Ghana, Togo, or Nigeria and say these countries are where the enslaved warriors from Africa came from because these countries did not exist at the time of the Slave trade. These countries came into existence after most of Europe abolished slavery.
• Before Europeans demarcated the continent, what existed in Africa were various African Kingdoms and Empires. (Empire is a number of kingdoms under a single authority or ruler)
Notice that the Bible has kingdoms in it. And the very first kingdom was a family.
Even in the New Testament, Jesus (Yahushua in Hebrew) only preached the gospel (good news) of the "Kingdom" of God. Think about that..
So much more I could discuss on this but again, back to our subject...
As seen and explained above on a map dated 1747, the "Kingdom of Juda" is clearly seen on the west coast of Africa.
The Hebrew Israelites were in fact "strangers" living amongst Africans, and they looked so much alike that they were often mistaken all through the Bible as Egyptians (Africans).
It is also documented that the Israelites were called "The Children of the Book" by the African tribes.
The indigenous Africans first sent word to the Portuguese that the Children of the Book were there in much numbers...and are cursed to be slaves (Deut 28:41,48 & 68)...
And like they say...the rest is history!
And there you have the "world's best kept secret"...and the main reason for the existence of this website.
In the Bible God's people never separated their history from the law and their worship - like we have been trained to do.
Their history was intertwined in the covenant or their law - that God gave them. The Hebrew's law and history were ONE.
And God always had a problem with them not remembering what He had done for them.
He expected for them to knowandremember their history.
Learning our correct history is a very important key to our solutions.
If you are a part of the so called "African" diaspora in the Americas, Caribbeans, or even Europe... If your ancestors were sold as slaves in the trans Atlantic slave trade, or if you are in Africa and are relatives of those sold - all of Scripture and history points to you being actual descendants of the Israelites of the Bible - God'schosenpeople.
It is what it is family.
There is no way to tell our entire story in one writing as history has been terribly twisted and tangled up to support the so called Jews in Israel of today, so I encourage you to scroll through our site.
Here are just a few of our articles that I believe to be foundational to this research.
Just click on either link, but as stated below, there are more articles and videos:
I believe we have covered every angle of sincere questions to the validity of this research.
"For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the Lord, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future." ~ Jer 29:11 (NIV)
Our correct history clearly tells us and confirms that God has a plan for His people!
Despite what this culture wants you to think, you must know who you are. You are a special people!

This sounds just too good to be true to many of us because we have not been exposed to correct history. We have not been told that we were anybody. And most of what we have been taught about us clashes with history.
So this site is not to necessarily convince anybody. My desire is to inspire you to continue researching.
What if this is true? What if there is more to you than what you were taught?
It is our responsibility to make sure we are teaching our children true history and identity. It's not another people's responsibility. They are teaching their children (and ours) their history.
