Ivan Gladstone Van Sertima (26 January 1935 - 25 May 2009) was a historian, linguist and anthropologist at Rutgers University in the United States.[1] He was noted for his controversial theory of pre-Columbian contact between Africa and the Americas, which he published in his book They Came Before Columbus (1976). While the book was a popular bestseller, it was "either completely ignored or generally dismissed by anthropologists, historians and other academic professionals."[2]
