Long Before Columbus Posted by. Taylor Gordon. Columbus Himself. According to renowned American historian and linguist Leo Weiner of Harvard University, one of the strongest pieces of evidence to support the fact that Black people sailed to America before Christopher Columbus was a journal entry from Columbus himself.
In Weiner’s book. "America," they said, refers to what is now the United States of America. "They immediately protested because they knew that Columbus didn't land in the United States of America.
In he may have sailed the ocean blue. But Christopher Columbus has duped people for centuries into believing he discovered America, a new book claims, reports the Telegraph.
