Blacks in America Before Columbus Kindle Edition by Aylmer Von Fleischer (Author)

Christopher Columbus was not the first person to ‘discover’ the Americas. Several other peoples had already been there, including the Chinese, Norwegians, Japanese, the Vikings and Romans. This work, however, proves that Blacks were the first peoples in the Americas.

They Came Before Columbus: The African Presence in Ancient America (Journal of African Civilizations) Paperback – September 23, 2003 by Ivan Van Sertima (Author)

They Came Before Columbus reveals a compelling, dramatic, and superbly detailed documentation of the presence and legacy of Africans in ancient America. Examining navigation and shipbuilding; cultural analogies between Native Americans and Africans; the transportation of plants, animals, and textiles between the continents; and the diaries, journals, and oral accounts of the explorers themselves, Ivan Van Sertima builds a pyramid of evidence to support his claim of an African presence in the New World centuries before Columbus. Combining impressive scholarship with a novelist’s gift for storytelling, Van Sertima re-creates some of the most powerful scenes of human history: the launching of the great ships of Mali in 1310 (two hundred master boats and two hundred supply boats), the sea expedition of the Mandingo king in 1311, and many others. In They Came Before Columbus, we see clearly the unmistakable face and handprint of black Africans in pre-Columbian America, and their overwhelming impact on the civilizations they encountered.

Several Prominent Greeks like Pythagoras studied in ancient Egypt under black priests/professors. Blacks constructed the pyramids and megalithic remains like Stonehenge. . Blacks have fought and died in all of America’s wars. The Black Moors ruled parts of Europe for close to 800 years and their efforts helped usher Europe out of the Dark Ages and into the Renaissance.

The Black Man The Father of Civilization: Proven by Biblical History Paperback – December 3, 2012
by James Morris Webb A. M. (Author)

“The Bible gives the first and only true account of the origin of mankind. It is the only book containing an accurate record of the progress of man toward civilization, and it is the indispensable reference of all searchers after the real facts of the birth of humanity and its progress toward the civilization of today; beginning with his creation, it is the only authentic record of man; authentic because it is first hand, not a copy of something else or a scientific or literary review, but a dispassionate record of man’s creation and progress, untrimmed, unshaped and unvarnished, to suit prejudice.” This is the historic and acclaimed work by the Seattle based minister James Morris Webb on the idea that Jesus and all the Biblical prophets were of African descent. Widely read within the Garvey Movement, the Rastafarians, and other early African identity and Black Nationalist groups. A follower of Marcus Garvey. Webb coined the phrases “Jesus is a Black Man” and “a Black Man is the Father of Civilization.”
