Olmec Head at La Venta Park, Villahermosa. Tabasco, Mexico
The stone heads that remain at Olmec provide snap shots of the Kemet-Nubians that sailed from the Nile valley region from the horn of Africa to not only Europe and Asia, but to the Americas before the Christian-era. This documentary provides live footage of Dr. Ivan Van Sertima's on-site research in the Olmec regions of the Americas, such as the Olmec capital of La Venta, Tabasco, Mexico.
Africans in America are described by the local historian/tour guide in this documentary as a priesthood class. Dr. Van Sertima states that they were among the ruling elite of the Olmec, living alongside Mesoamerican native societies in relative harmony.
