Where can I find the sources for your videos?
If you want to find out more about our topics, we try to provide detailed sources and further reading suggestions for as many videos as possible. You can usually find them in the info box of the video. If no sources are listed, this might be due to internal reasons (e.g., we used input material that is not available online)
Can I translate your videos into another language?
Unfortunately, no. We are thinking about providing our content in many different languages.
Can I reupload your videos on my website?
No, you cannot. You may, however, use the embedded link which refers to our channel on your website/Facebook page; our videos always have to be credited with courtesy of YUNIYA
Can I upload your videos to Facebook, Twitter, or Instagram?

How long does it take you to create one video?
Since the project began, there has been roughly one video a month, but this is subject to change based on our schedule. We are a small team, and it usually takes …. Hours to finish one
What’s the research like for each story? What’s the longest you’ve spent on a story?
It depends on various factors. There are books and articles about them based on historical texts. This is never perfect; accounts of people’s lives and cultures only capture a moment in time, where ancient African people lived but didn’t write anything down and oral histories have been so disrupted by colonisation.
Telling these stories will always be a challenge - there will be multiple viewpoints, some of which are difficult to find. If you have great sources that you would like to share with us, or you believe we can do better, please write to us at
