I was looking for famous Black queens and Kings of Africa when i saw Hannibal the Carthagian general of carthage. who is considered to be one of the finest military generals in history was on the list of the great AFRICAN KINGS... website here http://www.swagga.com/king.htm check him out on there.
However, I saw a statute of him a while back and he did not look black at all. http://www.layline.de/geschichte/Hannibal.gif check it out yourself.
Also, I decided to go a black history site and try to find out if Hannibal was truly an African. I got this picture of him by an artist on that webite....looks black on that pic...... I just recenlty found out that theres a move in progress staring Vin Diesel about Hannibal. Sounds like another passion of christ movie, you know how they say its so historically accurate but a white guy played jesus.... I know this may be a newbie question but i figure if someone would know if Hannibal was black my brothers and sisters on here would know....I hope
Help brotha out....peace
