For hundreds of years, it has been believed that Christopher Columbus was the first to sail to the Americas. While people are allowed to believe what they want, there is evidence showing that Africans sailed to the Americas long before Columbus made the lengthy trip.
Here are five pieces of evidence that prove Africans sailed to the Americas before Christopher Columbus.
1. The discovery of Egyptian artifacts in North America
There have been many Egyptians artifacts found in North America. Dr. David Imhotep confirmed this in his book, “The First Americans Were Africans: Documented Evidence” when he stated “Egyptian artifacts found across North America from the Algonquin writings on the East Coast to the artifacts and Egyptian place names in the Grand Canyon.”
2. African skeletons unearthed in the New World
Both skulls and skeletons have been unearthed in the New World. It was found that the skeletons were of African descent and predated the arrival of Columbus, which is further proof of African beating Columbus to America.
Religion is another way Africa and North America can be connected to each other. There have been some similarities found between the religions of Africans and Native Americans. An example is the deities featured in Native American portraits that resemble African characteristics like dark skin and coarse hair.
4. Shipbuilding skills of Africans
It has been found that Africans were very skilled at building ships, as it was part of their tradition. The fact that they had the resources to build these ships and navigate means they could have easily made it to America long before Columbus ever did.

Yes, I also believe so. I have been in archeological sites in Mexico, Central and South America, and found that many of the images either carved or in the form of statue, have similarities to the Black race more than to what we know as “native”.
I also believe that the Black people are the Superior Race because the reason why they did not advance as much as their potential was because they were held back by slavery; with the white people intimidating them. Saying: “Too Black, Too Strong The Talking Drum. …. KEEP THE BODY TAKE THE MIND!” The black people dominated Egypt and the greater part of North Africa. The natives were strong warriors, more so than the Europeans.
There is no place on this planet that Black people have not been. Afterall, we have been here for trillions of years. Thus far, scientists have only been able to prove millions but as they continue to dig and research they will discover this truth. We were not only first in America but also in Europe, Asia, and every place else. WE named things long before there was ever a White person on the planet. For example, we called what is now The Atlantic Ocean, The Ethiopian Sea. We called what is now Earth, Asia – not because there were people who were, by today’s references, Asians, but because WE were and this was our planet.
Also, in the lie that they tell about Columbus, he wasn’t even the first White man to come to what they called “The New World”. Leif Erikison did it in the year 1000; 492 yrs before Columbus.
