"In 1876, in a mountainous region to the west of Lake Victoria, Africa, what is today Ruwenzori Mountains National Park in Uganda, the famed explorer Henry Morton Stanley encountered Africans with what he was convinced were light complexions and European features. Stanley's discovery of this African 'white tribe' haunted him and seemed to substantiate the so-called Hamitic Hypothesis: the theory that the descendants of Ham--the son of Noah--had populated Africa and other remote places, proving that the source and spread of human races around the world could be traced to and explained by a Biblical story. In [this book], Michael Robinson traces the rise and fall of the Hamitic Hypothesis"--Amazon.com.
