Scientists and archaeologist overwhelmingly agree that Homo sapiens, or the first "humans", evolved in Africa.

According to Chris Stringer, research leader at the Natural History Museum specializing in archaeology, human origin, and palaeoanthropology, argues that, "our African origins might be 'multiregional', with different regions of Africa playing a part at different times." Fossils discovered alongisde tools (Middle Stone Age) in northwest Africa, indicates Africa's importance in our early evolution.

East Ruin chose this Fair Trade African Mask pendant to enhance the bookmark set as a thought-provoking tool for beginner and avid readers alike, and to contribute to fair labor standards in Africa. The goal is to see the pendant and allow it to be a significant reminder to regularly question who we as humans are, where we came from, what history has told us, and what it has left out, and how through reading and better understanding facts from multiple sources we can come to a point of understanding of our past and better correct our future trajectory.

Made with Fair Trade African Pendant 19x14mm, 14k old plated 8mm jump rings, and Premium Metal Chain
