“In several articles, [Professor Clyde Winters] has shown also the movement of Africans into Western Asia and the African origin of the Dravidians. It is the Dravidians, belonging to the C-group in Nubia, who are credited with the diffusion of several African domesticates to Asia. Winters has established many connections between the Dravidians, who are now Afro-Asiatic, with Black Africa in the far past, particularly through linguistic evidence and shared cultural traits. He also demonstrates that the crops we mentioned above, indigenous to Africa, appeared later in the Asian context in areas where these Dravidians settled.”
