About the Author

Marcel Gomes Balla is a Cape Verdean American. He has spent much of his adult life working to research and spread the word about the contributions of the people of Cabo Verde, a nation off the western coast of the continent of Africa. For forty years Balla has been investigating every aspect of Cape Verdeans’ contributions to history. And he is the only Cape Verdean American whom the descendants of the first Cape Verdean family decided to invite to an International Conference in Genoa, Italy to commemorate the 550 year discovery of Cabo Verde, 1460-2010. Balla is intensely committed to continue his research about Cape Verdean descendants.
