Stylistically compelling this book can be an enchanting read though its thesis is deeply flawed Behind the dramatizations Van Sertima asserts two different points 1 that Africans travelled by sea from Egypt to America about 3000 years ago thus sparking the first American civilization the Olmec and 2 that Afrikans from the Empire of Mali had extensive trading relations with the American peoples of the Caribbean from the time of Mansa Abubakari in the early 14th century Of these the latter is somewhat probable though Sertima really only proves that Mali sent fleets west and that was known before his book was published Sertima however fails to provide any conclusive proof of the extensive trading it s all circumstantialThe deepest flaws however lie with the first point Here Sertima uses arguments that are very strange such as that the famous Olmec Stone heads are obviously African and thus they must be depictions of Africans Mesoamerican scholars have disproved Sertima but their arguments have had little spread outside of academic circles Their article is available online here should be read at least as a counterpoint to this bookWhat really bugs me is that Sertima never adresses the most serious argument against his thesis the epidemiological one When the Europeans made extensive contact with the American civilizations the latter collapsed This was not due to some kind of European superiority but rather the result of Old world microbes against which the Americans had no resistance whatsoever Why Because they never had been exposed to those microbes never developing any resistance against them For Sertima s argument to be valid this lack of resistance on the part of the Americans must be explained Sertima however fails to do so From the epidemiological viewpoint any pre columbian contact would have to have been extremely marginal not affecting the American continents as extensively as Sertima asserts It is still possible to argue that pre columbian contact existed but one will need some kind of proof for this not the kind of wishful thinking Sertima engages in in this book
