Spotlight on Pedro Alonso Nino

Pedro Alonso Nino also known as Alonzo Pietro was a black Spaniard who was both a navigator and an explorer. He was born in Spain in 1455,[1] and set sail with Columbus on the first voyage to the new world.[2] Nino later supervised his own expeditions in the West Indies in search of wealth. Upon returning to Spain, he was seized by the king for withholding the king's share of his profits. Nino died before his trial was complete.[1] (Side note: there are many artifacts that suggest Africans found South America long before Columbus.[3][4])

Lost History

Wasted history overflows pages

Overshadowed by untruths and

Β  Β  Β more favorable tales...

Time is stolen from us

While we decorate mad men

Honor murderers and liars,

Sing praises of the oppressors

And forget the lives of the oppressed.

Scripted and misshapen

Β  Β  the American dreamIs lost in the rubble

Of the untold it seems.
