Long before 1492, African sailors and travelers, many of them slaves or servants, helped to discover new worlds. Many black adventurers have passed unsung into history, and yet they played vital roles in innumerable explorations. Renowned author Jim Haskins describes the feats of those whose imagination and courage led them to new worlds, against all opposition.
