Columbus was the greatest hero of the Fifteenth and Sixteenth Centuries

As the familiar narrative has arisen in recent years of Christopher Columbus as a purported "villain", so have risen countless experts on Christopher Columbus to unanimously debunk this slander as the myth it is.

To name a few,

  • Professor Emeritus Carol Delaney of Stanford University, dedicated decades of her life traveling the globe to study documents and artifacts regarding Columbus first-hand, and is the premier Columbus expert on the planet.
  • Taino author Rafael Ortiz has written four books on Columbus in English and Spanish and collaborated with the National Columbus Education Foundation.
  • Philadelphia attorney Robert F. Petrone, was enlisted by City Council to research the primary resources and investigate the slanderous claims recently levied against Columbus in the bitter battle over Columbus's legacy in Philadelphia.

All three of these Columbus scholars recently appeared among a panel of experts hosted by Drexel University. They and the rest of the panel of experts all unanimously agreed that the portrayal of Columbus as a racist, rapist, maimer, murderer, slaver, swindler, and genocidal maniac is nothing more than a collection of bald-faced lies.


In fact, Columbus was the greatest hero of the Fifteenth and Sixteenth Centuries; specifically, he was the first civil rights activist of the Americas. This site is dedicated to promoting the works of the experts who have studied the primary sources who understand this truth, and to serving as a repository for grass-roots campaigns to fight the political forces bent on destroying the legacy of this paragon and icon of Western culture.
