February 5, 2018 Josh Gates/Travel Channel along with NBC and the Today Show, revealed a Neferneferuaten Nefertiti likeness reconstructed with Egyptian remains with porcelain white skin.

While the physical structure may be true to her likenesses, her skin tone is not. DNA analysis extracted from the remains traces a royal  lineage between 16th – 13th century BCE, who’s wall descriptions depicted themselves as a darker tone with course, wired hair. 

I am calling on all people of conscienceness to pressure The Travel Channel and Josh Gates to retract statements and recreate a statue that is more suited towards her likeness with melaninated skin tone. For too long, black people have been subjected to the misrepresentation of historic figures and royalty,  we know for a scientific, geological fact to be people of color. 

Neferneferuaten Nefertiti would not have fair, white skin in a Countryin Africa with a temperature index upwards of 120 degrees F. 

Enough is enough. This is part of systemic and cultural racism and it misinforms our people, our generation and our children of color. It is an insult to our intelligence and the true nature of our history. 

This is a topic of conversation and a topic for change. Please join me in the signing of this petition. 

Old ways, won’t open new doors.
