Ancient Africans in America

Before Columbus left for the New World, Melanated brothers and sisters were already living in what we call the Americas. Obviously we know, as does anyone with a brain, that it's impossible to discover a land populated by other people. The land may be knew to you, but that does not mean that it is a new land. That's like a bunch of strangers knocking on your door telling you that they just discovered your house. Well, weren't you living there before they "discovered" it? So would that not mean that you found it before they did?

Join Alex Primo, Asha Zuri, and Zhe Levels Scott Thursday September 24 at 9 PM EST as we explore and discuss the untold, or rather untaught, history of Melanated(Black) People who walked the shores of the Americas long before those who claimed to have "found" it.

Proof of the Melanated presence in America before Columbus comes from Columbus himself. In 1920, historian Leo Weiner of Harvard University, in his book, "Africa and the discovery of America", explained how Columbus noted in his journal that Indigenous Americans had confirmed that “black skinned people had come from the south-east in boats, trading in gold-tipped spears.”

Also the brother Dennis Jefferson will be stopping by for another informative and much needed episode of Healthy Matters.
