#17: Ancient Egyptian Queen Nefertiti with Dr. Joyce Tyldesley: Beauty, Fame, Power & a Death Shrouded in Mystery

Beauty Is Eternal

Ancient Egyptian Queen Nefertiti with Dr. Joyce Tyldesley: Beauty, Fame, Power & a Death Shrouded in Mystery more places The last dynasty of Ancient Egypt may have died out over two thousand years ago, but the legacy and mystery of the circa three-thousand year period lives on in the hearts and imaginations of those enchanted by it, as well as in the fascinating pyramids, beguiling sphinx and immortalized bust of Queen Nefertiti. No one knows where she came from or when or how she died, but everyone knows her bust. The basic anatomy and physiology of human beings has changed little since Queen Nefertiti’s life. They say that history repeats itself, so if modern humans are physically similar to those in Ancient Egypt, it makes sense to investigate what we can learn from them. Queen Nefertiti lived from an estimated 1370-1335 BC. She was the wife of the Pharaoh Amenhotep IV during one of the wealthiest periods of Ancient Egypt in which they moved the capital from Thebes to Amarna. Although enemies of her husband tried to erase him from history, ironically, she instead became one of the most famous women to emerge from Ancient Egypt. Nefertiti’s bust is currently in the Neues Museum of Berlin. Talk about Eternal Beauty! Joyce Tyldesley is a British archeologist and Egyptologist, academic and the author of over 20 books about Ancient Egypt including the female Pharaohs Hapchepsut, Cleopatra and Nefertiti. Joyce teaches at the University of Manchester, specializing in Egyptian historiography and the role of women in Ancient Egypt. She teaches online degrees in Egyptology – so if you are listening, you can actually study under her! She is the author of the books, “Nefertiti: Egypt’s Sun Queen” and the more recent book “Nefertiti’s Face” which focusses on the Berlin bust of Nefertiti.  We are talking to Joyce today, one of the world’s leading experts on Nefertiti, to un-earth and unbury information about Egypt’s elusive queen from the mouth of one of the world’s leading experts on her. Joyce studied archaeology of the Eastern Mediterranean at Liverpool University, before getting her doctorate in prehistoric archaeology at Oxford University focussing on handaxes used by Neanderthals. She holds an honorary doctorate from the University of Bolton and is a Research Associate of the Manchester Museum. Prior to joining the University of Manchester she taught prehistory and Egyptology at Liverpool University. You can read more about Joyce and contact her on her website http://joycetyldesley.co.uk.

4 Women of Virtue: Queen Nefertiti, Sojourner Truth, Carlota Lukumi, Marie-Joseph Angélique

Freedom Train Presents: On the Shoulders of Giants

The Freedom Train Network is celebrating black women for the entire month of May. So we will be celebrating and teaching you about great black women of the African diaspora. This episode we are focusing on "4 Women of Virtue": Queen Nefertiti, Sojourner Truth, Carlota Lukumi, and Marie-Joseph Angélique. NefertitiNefertiti was an Egyptian woman born around 1390 BCE who would become the Queen to Pharaoh Akhenaten. The name Nefertiti means "a beautiful woman has come," which was fitting because she was well known for her beauty. The identity of her parents is unknown in most circles, and little is known about her early life. She became the wife of Pharaoh Amenhotep IV who would change his name to Akhenaten because they were followers of Aten. Nefertiti would take on a name change as well, she was known as “Neferneferuaten-Nefertiti” which means “Beautiful are the beauties of Aten, a beautiful woman has come.” Akhenaten made a radical change in converting his kingdom to the following of Aten. Sojourner Truth In 1797 a young girl named Isabella was born into slavery in Ulster County, New York. Her parents were James and Betsey and they were owned by Colonel Johannes Hardenbergh. As a young girls Isabella did not speak English, she only spoke what is called low Dutch and she could not read or write. Isabella would marry a man named Thomas who was also enslaved at the time; together the couple produced five children. Between 1815 and 1826 she was sold to four different slave owners on four different occasions. In 1826, Isabella had enough and decided to escape slavery and claim her freedom. ​Carlota LukumiIn the early 1800’s a young girl named Carlota was kidnaped from her Yoruba village in Nigeria and transported to Mantanzas, Cuba. While living in Cuba, she was sold to a sugarcane plantation in Triumvarato where the conditions were poor and inhumane. Carlota was strong willed and vigilant, she refused to let her conditions break her. In 1843 Carlota met a fellow slave girl named Fermina who planned an uprising. Carlota was willing and able to help Fermina raid the plantation to gain their freedom. Unfortunately, the plantation owners learned of Fermina’s plans, she was beaten and locked in jail.  Carlota was not deterred by Fermia’s incarceration; she used the talking drum to communicate to the others of her plans. The slaves would often use their drums as safe way to communicate to each other. Using the drums Carlota organized a raid on the plantation which helped to free Fermina and others from jail. Marie-Joseph AngéliqueDuring the 1730’s a young slave girl named Marie-Joseph Angelique would start a rebellion history would never forget. Angelique was the property of François Poulin of Montreal; little is known about the history of slavery in Canada. She was a slave girl who was being prepared to become a mating partner with a fellow slave. Angelique was a woman of sound mind and she was resistant to the demands of her master. She was also engaged in a relationship with a white indentured servant named Claude Thibault from France. 4 Women of Virtue.mp3File Size:14704 kbFile Type:mp3Download FileOTSOG Book Series

Black Roots in Music & Comics (911, Timeline of White Folks Appropriating Black Music, Black Comic Characters, Janet Appreciation Day, Justin Timberlake, Queen Nefertiti, Scandal, Today Show)

Minority Korner

How did you spend Janet Appreciation Day (AKA Super Bowl LII)? We took a knee in support of Colin Kaepernick, and protesting Justin Timberlake's (Mr. King of Appropriation) performance after his participation of 'nipplegate' back in 2014, aiding in Ms. Jackson's dethroning, and riding his wave of white male privilege unscathed to the land of further success. Scandal seems to be showing some Janet love this week in it’s hot mess of a final season. Are you watching James’ “Auntie’s” (Angela Bassett's) show 9-1-1? Nnekay has a huge correction for the Today Show, and their unveiling facts about Queen Nefertiti, and who she really was. Note: she did not look like Gladys the soccer mom. Also King Tut was probably a bubble boy. Inspired by Justin Timberlake’s Super Bowl performance, James takes us on a magical journey through time exploring a timeline of white folks appropriating Black music, why this has been occurring for over a century, and American music’s roots in African culture. Nnekay continues her discussion from last week exploring Black comic characters you should know!
