I have recounted one shred of history, the short period between 1280 to 1337.
Here was an African Kingdom of enormous power and wealth.
Here was a regent, Mansa Musa who took the throne when his predecessor, Abu Bakr went on a voyage of exploration to the New World, taking thousands of boats, and did not return.
Anyone who does the slightest research into Abu Bakr or Mansa Musa, or the Kingdom of Mali will find this information.
It is not ‘alternate facts’, it is real and documented.
Yet, these facts are unknown to the majority of people.
