    • Synopsis
    • Did the first African to reach the Americas arrive as a king and not a slave?
      West Africa in the 13 th century saw the rise of a vast empire — the Mandingo Empire. 180 years
      before Christopher Columbus, its Emperor, Abubakri II, set off to cross the Atlantic with an armada of
      2,000 ships. He never returned.
      Drawing on both fact and fiction, this film sets out to restore the Mandingo civilisation to its rightful
      place in history.
