I have been reading some of the messages from those who claim to have studied the writings of scholars concerning the ancestry of Ancient Egyptians, and dispel the fact that Ancient Egyptians were Black peoples. The Greek Historian Herodotus, who lived 500 years before Christ and was known as the Father of History identified Egyptian people as being "black skinned and having woolly hair." That was not the only characteristic that defined Egyptians as Herodotus writes, "several other nations are so too."
