Abu Bakr II: Did the King of Ancient Mali go to America?

History books still teach children that Christopher Columbus initiated the first contact between the Americas and the rest of the world. The great explorer opened up the new continent to trade, conquest and destruction. But as new discoveries are made, this version of events becomes more and more threadbare. A penny in Maine referring to King Olaf of Norway seems to point to Scandinavian settlers in the 11th  century.
Sweet potatoes crossed the Pacific from South America to Easter Island and even Polynesia tens of thousands of years earlier, and apparently Polynesian languages even include loan words for the tubers, suggesting human contact.
And from Africa come stories of a great king who took a long sea voyage to the Americas, 200 years before Columbus. The king or “Mansa”, Abu Bakr II, ruled the Mali Empire in central Africa in the 14th Century. He is said to have led the Malian sailors to the Americas, landing in what is now Brazil.

Also - und ich sag das rein gefühlsmäßig - ich halte das für ein Märchen aus Mali. ;)
