African History is controversial because the mere way that we view Africa in our culture is contradictory to the notion that any history could be in it. Therefore, learning about the possibility of history in Africa is hard for some people to accept - people don't like change, and they don't like their notions challenged. This is further compounded by the association of black people with multiple stereotypes that would put them as "unruly" - the opposite of civilized. How could these unruly people build civilization? While many don't want to admit it, these ideas kind of undercut our culture, especially American culture.
