The First Americans Were Africans Expanded & Revised, written by David Imhotep, Ph.D. Imhotep skillfully weaves together a well researched, insightful and peer reviewed thesis. Dr. Imhotep's book is by far the most revolutionary viewpoint ever published on this subject. After colossal Negroid stone head were first excavated in Mexico in the 1860s several Latin American scholars began to speculate that Africans had sailed to the New World in ancient times. Unlike his predecessors he does not claim that Africans simply sailed to the Americas before Columbus and influenced the Native Americans who resided in the New World. Dr. Imhotep proves that the Native Americans themselves were Black Africans who first reach the New World at least 130,000 years ago.
