I now realize how true it is that God does not show favoritism but accepts from every nation the one who fears him and does what is right.” – Acts 10:34-35
Even if we go by this statement, it is clear that the Israelites never had a monopoly on God. To this end, akin to the Jewish prophets in the Bible, there would have been people in Africa with impeccable qualities before the advent of Christianity.
There would have been kings, priests, chiefs and ordinary citizens who pursued a just cause, and probably died in their plight like characters in the Bible.
In essence, like the fictional movie: Black Panther, the sense of identity and inspiration our children (especially those of us in diaspora) will draw from the stories of any of these unknown individuals surpasses the story of a thousand prophets in the Bible.
