    All hurricanes that reach the Americas start in Africa. So it's is likely that Africa reached the Americas many years before colombus.
    The olmec structures found in the Americas of heads look similar to African features with braided hair.
    Remember it was the Jews and moors that was expelled from Spain and Portugal.
    It was the Jews that started the atlantic slave trade. Colombus was of Jewish origin.

    Here's what happened. Some of the ships landed in the Americas in different areas. Two questions remain. 1. How many ships landed? Where did they all land? Tainos, Mayans, and whoever met Balboa were aware of them. Balboa met some Africans on his quest for gold, and he wrote it on his journal.

    No, it doesn't prove anything. In other words, if they had maritime knowledge, why could no African ethnic group reach and populate islands in the vicinity of Africa such as Cape Verde, Madagascar, Annobon, Sao Tome, Mauritius or Santa Elena? How do they want us to believe they got to South America?

    One would think Thor Heyerdahl's experiments would have silenced any arguments against the possibility of Africans reaching the so called "New World" but myths die hard!

    Black Africans are always so giving, even to a country that denied their Blackness because Mansa saw them as people of the same land.

    Al-Umari’s record of this conversation is the only account of this voyage, as it is not mentioned by other medieval Arab historians or West African oral tradition.

    I have no idea the truth of the legend. But if the technology for ocean capable ships existed, then there were fishermen going out into the sea. And traders plying the coast, so the current would be common knowledge, at least among the West African sailors. (Go out too far and you get swept away). But completely unknown to the Egyptians.

    I read a great book from the 70's (I think) about this topic called "They Came Before Columbus". I highly recommend that book, I learned so much. The author covers archeological evidence from South and Central America that, to me, seemed very conclusive that more than one African expedition made it to America and triggered a renaissance in their culture and religion. Super fascinating!

    Let’s get further into the weeds and address the real issue of who were the ancient Egyptians. You should not be surprised by my answer, but Yes, Africans did rule and build Egypt. In the 21st century, I wonder why this is still controversial. We are in a time where there is a continued push to censor black history. Egypt, for a time, was a multicultural nation as it traded with and was conquered by the Persians 100 years before Herodotus visited in the 5th century. Following the Persians were the Greeks, Romans, Arabs, Turks, French, and English, but overall, and beforehand, ancient Egypt was African! Other groups contributed to Egypt, but Egypt was an ancient Black African empire with black people of many shades and features.

    During a forum titled “The Africanity of Egypt,” Dr. Christopher Ehret, a Distinguished Research Professor and American Scholar of African history and linguistics, stated not only was Ancient Egypt in Africa, but it was of Africa.

    During the same forum, Dr. Ehret continued highlighting the Africanity and blackness of Egyptian culture, language, and people. He further clarified how the inhabitants of Nubia, a Subsaharan empire south of Egypt, migrated to, developed, and influenced Egypt over thousands of years. This same group of people were also highlighted in National Geographic Magazine as the 25th dynasty of Egypt. According to Susan Goldberg, the first woman hired in 2014 to be the magazine’s editor-in-chief, she was vocal about the magazine’s troubled past of portraying people of African descent as ‘natives’ and happy hunters, noble savages — every type of cliché.”

    The magazine and its scholars had a history of negating black excellence. However, even National Geographic recognized the black rulers of Egypt when they published National Geographic February 2008 Issue, The Black Pharaohs. This published research by National Geographic focused on the rulers of the 25th Dynasty in Egypt, who were Kushites from a Subsaharan kingdom known to have male and female rulers. They created one of the greatest empires in antiquity and are even mentioned in the bible when the Kushite King, Tarharqa, chased the Assyrians from Judah, saving King Hezekiah and the Jewish people.

    Why is this important? Because the term “Subsaharan” is synonymous with being “African” or “Black,” the region known as Nubia is now Sudan! It’s also important because it shows the strength of the Nubians (Sudanese) and their ability to influence Egyptian culture.

    During an interview on the Study of Antiquity and the Middle Ages, Dr. Rebecca Futo, the Director of the Denison Museum, confirmed research shows the ancient Egyptians were African. She also stated the ancient Greek scholar Herodotus provided a definitive statement when he compared the Egyptians, by their black skin and kinky hair, to the Colchians and Ethiopians.

    Why is this still an argument? Famed French egyptologist Gaston Maspero, who studied Egypt from 1868 to 1917, stated during his years of research, it was conclusive that “…by the almost unanimous testimony of ancient Greek historians, the Ancient Egyptians belonged to the African race, which settled in Ethiopia.” We can also look at Queen Tiye, the mother of the famous Tutankhamun, who was known for her political and religious knowledge. Looking at Queen Tiye’s bust, you can clearly tell she was African.

    According to the Washington Post article written in 1987, “The Black Roots of Egypt’s Glory,” France’s Count Volney visited Egypt in 1791. He was a scholar and a world traveler. He recounted how he saw ancient monuments and temples lying half-buried in the sand and had pondered the meaning of civilization, its rise and its fall — reflections that he gave free rein in his “Ruins of Empires.” Volney powerfully asked,“How is it, that a people, now forgotten, discovered, while others were yet barbarians, the elements of the arts and the sciences? A race of men now rejected from society for their dark skin and frizzled hair, founded on the study of the laws of nature, those civil and religious systems which still govern the universe.”

    Volney did not have any doubts the ancient Egyptians were African, and he wrote how the Greeks had unanimously proclaimed Egypt’s African origins. They believed the sphinx, which has since been damaged- confirmed it. Volner openly wondered what he perceived as a cruel irony of history that the “…people who had given the world civilization were now a race of slaves and outcasts?”

    The continued attempt to suppress black history is alarming. The effort to hide the fact that Black Africans built one of the greatest civilizations the world has ever seen is a result of western ideologies that diminish black people’s contributions to the world. These are the same tactics that thrived in the 18th century when western scholars perpetuated black inferiority to justify the enslavement of black people. I’m not going to get into how some western archeologists and explorers purposely tainted and revised ancient Egyptian artifacts to hide the Africanity of their appearance.

    Other ethnicities also have a great history. Nobody can discount the achievement of the Romans, Umayyad Caliphate, or Shang Dynasty. Hundreds of other civilizations made a considerable impact, but why is it that when black people highlight their history, it causes uproar and discontent? Why is there so much pushback when people of African descent speak proudly of their past? This is not “wokeness.” This is history and should be taught as such. I will add that the researchers and professionals I cited are renowned and distinguished in their careers and white! There are prominent black historians and archeologists of the same stature in their careers who I admire and could have cited.

    It’s a shame the current Egyptian scholars continue to push lies and eliminated black people from history. I recommend that Egyptians visit their own museums and read books by established researchers.

    When it comes to Africans having skills, intelligence, and creativity, there is always doubt. Even when the evidence is clearly African backed by writings, artifacts, and documents by witnesses during that time period proclaiming these facts. Then later comes "scholars" with their skepticism and prejudices to decivilize the true ethnicity of those historical and ancient Africans to a more acceptable race. Africans were the first for everything. African achievement incurred an "arrested development" when imperialism and colonization began.
