What the Africans believe as knowledge is not disputed by Africans because they are of the same epistemology. What the question presupposes is that African knowledge differ from knowledge of other races. Africans know what they know as culture inherited from generation to generation. There is no nation on earth which has not received anything from its ancestors. The fact that Africans continue to live by the knowledge inherited from past generations is proof that their knowledge has no problem. If it had a problem the African race would be extinct.
