"5000 years of African history will be lost!"

The mission of the Save Nubia Project (SNP) is to help raise national and international awareness about the pending flooding of the central areas of the ancient Kushite and Nubian civilizations in the Sudan. There are a series of dams (from the 2nd through 5th cataracts) scheduled for construction, each of which will cause the Nile River to back up and create a reservoir and flood countless ancient archaeological sites and displace well over 100,000 local Sudanese people. Thus, the Save Nubia Project’s task is to document that these areas in northern and central Sudan are valuable World Heritage Sites that are in danger of being destroyed, and should be preserved.

Join us with Prof. Manu, to hear of his first-hand involvement with the Nubian people as well as his primary research at theses historical African Heritage locations. Learn what we must do to stop this destruction of our history and heritage.
