Africans Lived In America Before Atlantic Slave Trade Ever Happened And Built Civilizations

“A race of people is like an individual man; until it uses its own talent, takes pride in its own history, expresses its own culture, affirms its own selfhood, it can never fulfill itself.” — Malcolm X

On almost every major land mass on planet earth you could find a giant stone with a “negroid” face on it, America is no exception. The original peoples of planet earth left their mark everywhere, and in a way that was obvious and undeniable.

Upon acknowledging this, it must make you wonder, what happened to those people? Did they all become extinct when the European colonizers brought disease, war, and captivity? If they’re not extinct, then where are these mystery people with negro features?

If they are extinct, isn’t a strange coincidence that most of the people classified as African American or Black Americans resemble the earliest accounts of ‘Indians’ in America, as well as the uncanny resemblance to the Ancient Olmecs?

Once you go deeper in your research you’ll understand how the numbers given to us about The Atlantic Slave Trade have been dramatically exaggerated to cover up the fact Europeans enslaved millions of Africans” that once cultivated and ruled the American lands, re-classified them as Indians and negroes, and convinced the Africans that their American history started with slavery, in order to keep the stolen land for themselves.

We have ALL been lied to. For hundreds of years we as a people have suffered an identity crisis manufactured by the intentional manipulation of European imperialism.

We can no longer allow our identities to be changed like the seasons while we stay ignorant of who we really are. Since the beginning of European colonization in America our national identity has changed continuously; from Negro, to Black, to Colored, to African American. All of these are mis-classifications. Why would you want to classify yourself as something you are not? Who are you?

Who were we before the first European settlers came to the land now commonly referred to as “America”? Some would say aboriginals. Some would say Africans. So would say Native American. I think people get too caught up arguing about a title, it causes too much division and confusion. The point is, the indigenous peoples of America share the same characteristics as other indigenous peoples of the world, we are essentially all apart of the same collective, the melanated masses. All melanated people on the planet originate from the same source.

When it comes down to it, we, the melanated masses, are the real ‘hue-mans’. We all came from the same original black man and woman, the original ‘hue’-mans. So keep that in mind and don’t get too distracted or defensive about my consistent use of the word “African” in this article. I’m only using that title so that you all know which specific segment of the melanated masses I am referring to.

When you re-examine the popular narratives about American history and the slave trade taught to us in school history books you will quickly realize that a majority of the ‘Black American’ population are descendants of the original African population that brought advanced culture and civilization to the Americas thousands of years ago.


Contrary to popular belief, the real aborigines of the American lands had ‘NEGRO’ features. European explorers saw people in the new world described as having dark skin, wooly hair, broad noses, big eyes.

“This, then, is the case for contact between Egypt and the New World in the 800-700 B.C period, a period in which the blacks of Nubia had gained ascendancy over the Egyptian empire and appeared, according to carbon-14 datings, in the Olmec world of Mexico as monumental figures, venerated and revered.”

Thousands of years ago Africans found a way to America and settled here.

If you go by the narrative, “All human life started in Africa”, then it makes since that the remnants we have of ancient civilization in the Americas all have people depicted with Negro or African features.


“It is in contradiction to the most elementary logic and to all artistic experience that an Indian could depict in a masterly way the head of a Negro without missing a single racial characteristic, unless he had actually seen such a person. The types of people depicted must have lived in America… The Negroid element is well proven by the large Olmec stone monuments as well as the terracotta items and therefore cannot be excluded from the pre-columbian history of the Americas.”

The issue is, some people are upset about the people (black americans) waking up to their ‘indigenous’ ancestry here, and claiming American lands instead of Africa.

There’s a serious misunderstanding here. It’s not about distancing from Africa, it’s about many so-called black americans have bloodlines that have lived on ‘American’ soil for thousands of years, long before the white man and the people of asiatic descent accepted  as ‘native americans’. Although the aborigines in America may have came from Africa thousands of years ago, it does not grant the so-called African-American any citizenship, sovereignty, or authority in Africa any more.

If, as of today, it’s commonly accepted that Africa is the ‘motherland’ of all civilization then why isn’t everyone alive on the planet considered African? How much time did it take before the original explorers from Africa settled in new lands, populated the area, and eventually renamed themselves in honor of the new communities and culture they established?

When you think of ‘natives of the American lands’ you think of people that look like the people in the photo below…


Although these people are indeed melanated, and have lived in America for allegedly thousands of years, they were not responsible for the high civilizations of the ancient Americas, Africans are. It’s believed that ‘Native Americans’, like in the photo below, migrated across the Bering Strait from Asia at some point in time.


Dr. Ivan Van Sertima notes in They Came Before Columbus, “It is generally admitted that the first people to inhabit America were Monguls from Asia who came to this continent via the Bering Straits some forty thousand years ago (the earliest date suggested by most research). They came as Ice Age primitives, with the barest rudiments of Asian culture, across a land bridge made possible by the weight of advancing ice sheets that buckled the earth’s surface, reducing the sea level by three hundred feet. This bridge was a plain one thousand miles long. As the ice retreated, the plain sank into the sea, reappearing about twenty-five thousand years ago to form once more a passage for wanderers from Asia.

After this second glacial epoch, America is assumed to have lived in total isolation from the rest of the world and to have developed all its cultures independently until Columbus came. This latter assumption is a myth that has been seriously challenged – serious enough to force second thoughts on conservative Americanists – only within the last few years.”

Although the East Asians, in the grand scheme of things, do in fact have African origins – it was the Africans who came directly across the Atlantic from Africa to the Americas that brought “civilization”. Not only was navigating to the Americas known to Africans, but it could easily be done on small ships with 1 to 2 people aboard.

A German doctor and sailor named Hannes Lindemann made two solo trips in the 1950’s across the Atlantic to the Americas to prove that the journey was physically possible.

It should be obvious that if this caucasian man can accomplish this voyage in the 1950’s, this voyage could have easily been completed by indigenous melanated minds who regularly crafted gigantic stone head sculptures and other supremely designed magnificent architecture that accurately aligned with the stars in the universe.

You’ll see in many ‘black’ people, “Indian features”, because the early Africans in American (so-called Black Americans)  and the ‘native americans’ (of East Asian descent)  have mixed bloodlines over time. This is realistic considering how much contact they would’ve had with each other, before and after the europeans.

Nonetheless, back to the main point, there are undeniable parallels between Ancient African cultures and Ancient Mesopotamian cultures. Not only the obvious cues we find in the gigantic Olmec heads, but in the specificities of both cultures.


“What confronts us…on both side of The Atlantic are arrays of cultural parallels and when these are dealt with as complexes, we are faced by amazing statistical indications…When the whole list of Mediterranean-American parallels are considered together as an entity the probability of diffusion rather then independent development does not increase arithmetically but exponentially; for instance, a cluster of 12 parallels grouped together say, in Mesopotamia and Mexico does not weigh twelve times heavier in the discussion than a single parallel, but rather, according to the laws of probability, has increased its significance by a truly astronomical amount. Among other things, this mean that Isolationist’s technique of negating these parallels one by one by labeling them ‘coincidence’ is mathematically invalid.”

There’s a good chance that if the so-called African Americans trace their family history they will discover that they are descended from the people indigenous to the lands now called the Americas, whom we know now migrated from Africa thousands of years ago.
