With the skill of a novelist, Ivan Van Sertima reveals to readers compelling, dramatic, and superbly detailed documentation of the presence and legacy of Black Africans in ancient America. It is the marriage of twin crafts--the artist's and the scholar's--in a book that makes it possible to see clearly the unmistakable face and handprint of Black Africans in Pre-Columbian America, and their overwhelming impact on the civilization they found here.

The history has factual accountability.

Thoroughly vetted with strong research and reference tools. History has not been given its complete truth and this book covers many hidden hard truths about the journey of African origins. A thought provoking account. Leer reseña completa
