"..but as I come to close, i want you to bear this in mind: the history of the world is not written,
the history of Europe.. perhaps.. There remains a great deal to be done. There's a whole world out there[..] a whole new set of things are emerging.. this is no closed chapter.. this last chapter has been written with a certain eye.. an eye that has been blind to the genius of the African. Therefore it is only by opening another eye.. by having a different kind of illumination, a different kind of vision.. that the history of the Americas.. that the history of the African can truly be written."

I can most certainly agree with Ivan Van Sertima that "We Came Before Columbus;" but I have strong doubts that those kingdoms/civilizations in the Americas "Came Before Kemet" as some authors may hypothesize.

Science has even attested that LIFE (Mitochondrial Eve) originates in AFRICA.

So, I have strong mis-givings that Africans developed the Americas BEFORE we developed AFRICA.
