are What the major reasons why Dr. D referenced the Egyptian civilization? The film Africa, The Voyage of Discover: Different But Equal, focuses on the history of African culture and civilization. Dr. Davidson, the narrator of the documentary, touches on the significant details of African culture that are not recognized by many. Egyptian civilization was highly influenced by African people. Some of the most complex and sophisticated buildings existed in ancient Egypt. Egypts civilization was unmatched by any other during its time. Unfortunately, many believe that African people could never have imagined such a great society. It has been said that Africans could never build a high civilization. Though people doubt the influence of Africans on Egyptian society there is evidence that suggests otherwise. Dr. Davidsons reasons for referencing the ancient civilization of Egypt stem from the idea of different but equal, which is an overarching theme in the documentary. Throughout Egyptian paintings and sculptures there is a strong emphasis on skin color and the way that each person is portrayed. In many of the paintings found the noble women of Egypt are seen as Nubians and they are portrayed as such. The royal children were often also painted black. There are several paintings that picture different skin tones for each person. In one such painting, there is a woman painted with black skin with a handmaiden behind her clearly painted white. Even the features of most Egyptian sculptures matched those of an African. Westerners that argue some of these statues have turned black because of time, but the features of these statues and the distinct colors of the paintings suggest otherwise. Even the buildings of Egyptians can be found within Africa. Ramsses the second built a large-scale temple in inner Africa. It is said that Ramsses built this temple so far south into Africa because his queen, Nefertari was Nubian. Dr. Davidson emphasizes the Egyptians building in Africa as a way to signify the roots of their culture. There must be some kind of connection between African people and Egypt because of the paintings found as well as the location of their temples within Africa. Dr. Davidson discusses the civilization of Meroe and its similarities to Egypts civilization. It is believed that Meroe is simply a duplication of Egypt, but Dr. Davidson expands on Meroes history revealing that it is not just mimicking Egyptian civilization. It is assumed that Africans could never have built something as advanced as ancient Egypt, however, there is evidence that demonstrates the influence of Africans on Egyptian civilization. By looking further into Egypts origins the significance of African influence can be seen. Dr. Davidson concentrates on the fact that Egypts civilization was advanced to demonstrate how capable Africans are. One of the main points of this document is to recognize that cultures are different but equal. Such a sophisticated society came from was inspired by a race that has been looked down upon for so many years.
