The Fringe - Ancestral Resonances, Ancestral Communications Context: Counter history to Talmudic claims of priestly authority Also Recommended: Dierk Lange's website: http://dierklange.com/ Dierk Lange's Lost Tribes of Israel paper: http://dierklange.com/pdf/LOST_TRIBES_OF_ISRAEL.pdf In which Lange informs us (p. 8): "The Kings of the first period of Oyo history are described by Hess as semi-divine (1898: 156). According to Johnson, the skulls of the royal family belonging to the first, or Omride, dynasty are still worshiped today in the palace of Oyo in the name of Obatala, a deity equivalent to Yahweh. These elements show that the Israelite past of the Oyo kings is held in higher esteem than the subsequent history under Assyrian auspices." From the above excerpt we find that Lange is referring specifically to 2 Kings 10: 7 (p. 8) to which we have added 2 Kings 10: 6 for additional context: 2 Kings 10: 6 and 2 Kings 10: 7 2 Kings 10:6 Then Jehu wrote them a second letter, saying, "If you are on my side and will obey me, take the heads of your master's sons and come to me in Jezreel by this time tomorrow." Now the royal princes, seventy of them, were with the leading men of the city, who were rearing them. 2 Kings 10: 7 And it came to pass, when the letter came to them, that they took the king's sons, and slew seventy persons, and put their heads in baskets, and sent him them to Jezreel.

On a typical day the National Gallery of Modern Art, located at Entrance B of the National Arts Theatre in Lagos, is locked up and in total darkness. I persuaded the security on duty to let me go in; when I eventually step into the exhibition halls, I could barely read the texts pinned next to the paintings and sculptures. “This is what it looks like most times and what we face always,” says Baba Agba (not real names), who saunters in minutes later. “The only time we have light here is when the generator is on, and that is usually when the Director-General is around.” He is supposed to be the in-house guide, but he does none of that. Dressed in Buba and Sokoto, Baba Agba is unsmiling. His every word is laced with a tone of helplessness and dissatisfaction. “The government is not paying attention to this place, it is not funding it well,” he continues, when I probe further, wanting to know why a place that should be a magnet for visitors, is this deserted. “Just see for yourself: the place is hot and the seat over there is useless. Who would want to stay in an environment like this? Tell me, who?” I get his point and I could only nod in agreement, in understanding. I have visited dozens of museums in Nigeria and I know for a fact that most of them are off-putting, in similar shape as the NGA. The air is nearly suffocating but I manage to look around, aided by the rays of natural light entering through the entrance and from spaces near the ceiling. Works of many renowned Nigerian artists—Erhabor Emokpae, Bruce Onobrakpeya, Aina Onabolu, Kolade Osinowo—hang on the wall and sit on pedestals. Busts of kings (Ooni of Ife, Oba of Benin) and queens (Queen Amina, Queen Idia) share the gallery space with paintings of Nigeria’s historical personalities (Uthman dan Fodio, Ajayi Crowder, Hubert Macaulay), cultural superstars (Wole Soyinka, Chinua Achebe) and former heads of states and presidents (Murtala Mohammed, Yakubu Gowon, Shehu Shagari). And various artists explore attention-grabbing aspects of Nigeria’s traditional life, deities and icons—markets, olokun and Abiku to mention a few. Pretty much everything and everyone that define Nigeria in the past century is highlighted in the gallery; they must have been in excellent shape when first installed but they now appear uninspiring, no thanks to the improper environment they have been kept in these many years. Like the controversy-prone National Arts Theatre, the Gallery ought to be a monument of national pride. And ordinarily, it should be top on the itinerary of school excursions; a visit here by pupils will help to ground the kids in their heritage, like the National Museum in Onikan is already doing. On both counts, sadly, it is not. “They don’t even advertise this place, so how will Nigerians know it,” Baba Agba says when I pay the token N100 charged per head. “If there is publicity, a few air conditioners installed and a small generator working, maybe things will change for the better. Or they should even let the private sector manage it.” His last sentence takes me unawares. But from the tone of his voice, I can tell he doesn’t mean it, neither is he convinced that any of these possible solutions will be implemented anytime soon. Just then, my gaze falls on the shelf behind him; it is dusty and empty, save for two old exhibition catalogues and a journal which have all gone past their sell-by dates.

This is where slaves were sold and shipped to the Americas - never to see Africa again. "We call it Point-of-No-Return because past there you will not see Africa again," says CornerStone, showing us the port where the slaves boarded the slave ships for the Americas. BattaBox reports from the Badagry Slave Museum in Nigeria which is currently undergoing rehabilitation and you can see the well that was dug by the slaves in 1847. Figures vary considerably, but it is estimated that nearly 3 million slaves were taken from the West African region (Togo, Benin, Cameroon, etc), particularly in & around Nigeria - 11 million slaves were taken from Africa as a whole by European and Arab slavers. An estimated 30% of all slaves sold from Africa - came from the Nigeria. Figures and report and map can be found here: http://www.bbc.co.uk/history/british/abolition/map/index.shtml "We call this one ankle shackle," says Cornerstone as he shows us a variety of historical artefacts in what was once a Barracon, which translates as slave cell in Portugues, who ran many of the early slave trading lines. There were forty rooms in this one building alone - "A minimum of 1600 slaves lived in this compound." In the 'Inspection Room' there were physical check the dental and health of the slaves - "to see if the slave is healthy enough to travel." Iron bars are on the small windows stopped anyone from escaping. Chains were used to emasculate and imprison the slaves are still available for viewing at the museum with photos to show how they were used on Africans. They even have an umbrella - used to shade local chiefs - that was exchanged for forty slaves, says CornerStone. Many of the slave forts and prisons have fallen into complete disrepair along the Nigerian coast - whereas in Ghana they still stand as a testament to the horror of the years of the slave trade. But Badagry Slave Museum is now being rehabilitated. **** CLICK HERE TO SUBSCRIBE FOR NEW BATTABOX VIDEOS EVERYDAY: http://goo.gl/vJfFY ... YouTube: http://www.youtube.com/user/BattaBox ...

This is arguably one of Nigeria’s finest museums. In 1884, the National Museum, which was once a residence of the colonial governor, was desigStaged at the height of the raining season (between thened and built in Glasgow, Scotland. It was then shipped over in pieces to the city via Morocco and set on a hill overlooking the waterfront from where the governor administered his colony. The old gardens surrounding the building have been carefully preserved, offering a serene setting for visitors. Colonial history, especially legal and constitutional documents in their original forms are well-preserved and documented in the museum. It also has exhibits of the slave trade, Palm Oil trade and Efik history.
