The Pelasgians: The Black Original inhabitants of Ancient Greece

Ancient Greece is without question the beginning of Western Civilization, but the first civilization in Grecian history was the Pelasgians. The Pelasgian civilization sprung its roots around 2500 BC., but who were the Pelasgians and where did they come from? Before we address this issue, we must first go back to the beginning. The oldest race of mankind is the Hamitic, or Black race. The Hamitic people were civilization builders. They spread out into every culture of the world. When you look at the most remote civilizations of Asia and Europe, you will find that these Hamites, or Blacks, at the epoch. They were the founders of civilization in Europe. Blacks branched out from North Africa and spread across the Mediterranean and southern Europe, and then left its mark on the entire European continent.

The Pelasgians were undoubtedly members of this Hamitic race. Five of the main Greek city-states were said to be founded by descendants of Ham: Corinth (Phoenicians); Thebes (Cadmus from Phoenicia); Laconia (i.e. Sparta and Lacedemonia) by Lelex, an Egyptian; Athens by Cecrops of Egypt; and Argos was founded by the Phoenician Inachus. The Greeks own mythology states that these cities were founded by Hamites. According to Plutarch, the Pelasgians founded Athens, which equates the Pelasgians as colonizers from Egypt. The Pelasgians were made of of various tribes including the Carians, Leleges, Cadmeans, and the Garamantes.

The Pelasgians chief centers were Crete, Argos, Laconia and Attica. The Mycenaean Bronze-age culture belonged to the Pelasgians.

As previously noted, the Greek city-states were founded and developed by maritime colonizers from Phoenicia and Egypt. The Egyptians and Phoenicians were descendants of Kush. The land of Kush was the land presently known as the Sudan. The Greeks called it Aethiopia, meaning “land of the burned faces.” The Egyptians called it Nubia. The Phoenicians were great cultural diffusionists, who spread Egyptian culture to Greece and Rome.

The Pelasgians were described as dolichocephalic (long-headed) people who were short, black, dark haired, and dark eyed. (Celtic Myth and Legend by Charles Squire. London: The Gresham Publishing Company, LTD, 1905, pp 19-20.) Dolichocephalicism is a characteristic of the Black race. They spoke a non-Indo-European language. Herodotus confirmed that it was not Greek. They are identified as a “pre-Greek”, “pre-Hellenic” people. The Pelasgians were also described as “highly intellectual, receptive, active and simple people, chiefly occupied with agriculture; war like when necessary, though preferring peace. We are told that they built canals, subterranean water-works, dams, and walls of astounding strength and most excellent construction.” (Five Years of Theosophy Edited by George Robert Stow Mead. London: Reeves and Turner, 1885, pg. 417) The deities of the Pelasgians were predominately the same as the Egyptians. (Primitive History, from the Creation to Cadmus by William Williams. J. Seagrave, 1789, pg. 344) They were a matrilineal society and worshipped female deities.

The Pelasgians were eventually subjugated by the Hellenes, and later, assimilated into the Indo-European Hellenic population. But when we speak of Greece as the origin of western civilization, let us not forget that it was the Pelasgians, the black people who were the original inhabitants, who were the bearers of civilization in that area.
