The Ancient Hebrews Were Black People... .


An Assyrian soldier leads Hebrews into captivity in 701 B.C. The reliefs from the walls of the palace of Sennacherib, depicting the seige of Lachish, show definitively that the Hebrews were black men. The pepper corn hair texture is distinct to people of African descent.

The Torah, or Bible, indicates in Genesis 10:3 that the Ashkenazi Jews are descended from Japheth, not Shem. Thus the Ashkenazi (European Jews) are not descendants of Abraham, who descended from Peleg, a Semite.

Black History Month Update

Hannibal Barca, Commander of Carthage

This coin of Hannibal Barca is said to be carbon dated to the time of Hannibal, 247 – 183 B.C., while later European-looking images of the Carthaginian general are reportedly dated a century or more after his death.
Hannibal Barca, the historic Carthaginian commander, became famous for crossing the Alps with war elephants and his subsequent dominance of the Roman army during the Second Punic War.  

Hannibal’s troops won battle after battle against the Romans and were never defeated in Italy. In fact, he was set to breach the city of Rome but administrators in Carthage failed to send reinforcements and siege equipment needed to complete the campaign. In 202 B.C., Hannibal returned to Africa to defend Carthage against invading Roman military forces, and there he was finally defeated by Scipio Africanus at the battle of Zama.
