They Came Before Columbus


They Came Before Columbus

There is a solid body of historical evidence which calls into question much of the history we have been taught in school. For one, the story of the discovery of America and the so-called New World by Christopher Columbus is just that, a story. They Came Before Columbus and other historical research completely refutes that story. Secondly, there was unmistakably a landing in the Americas of people from the African continent before the Columbian era. Their culture, artifacts, and statues were left behind for us to see. To support this view, there is history written about ancient African kingdoms telling about a fascination of a certain West African king with the other side of the Atlantic Ocean. And there is a legend of this king building a very large fleet of ships to sail the Atlantic. That king and his entourage were never seen again in Africa, and his kingdom was inherited by a subsequent king because he never came back. Check out these videos and explore this issue for yourself. Among the available research is a great interview by Gil Noble with the acclaimed archaeologist, Ivan Van Sertima, author of, They Came before Columbus.
