Family, today I accomplished something remarkable and perhaps unprecedented for an African scholar. I found my Olmec head! Here I am in San Lorenzo, near the little town of Tenochtitlan, Vera Cruz, Mexico. It was not cheap to get there, finding it was not easy and it took a long time, but mission accomplished! There are twenty known Olmec heads–seventeen of them are clear and distinct–and three more are bruised and battered–but as of today I have seen and photographed all of them. And this was the last one. It is a real accomplishment. All praises due Ivan Van Sertima and all of those pioneering scholars who paved the way. And for those who supported me and helped on the quest I cannot thank you enough. God bless you! I am eternally grateful. Ase!
In July 2017 I am going to lead an Olmec tour to Mexico. We will see every Olmec head and every major Olmec artifact in Mexico, on one tour. Get your money together!
In love of Africa,
