In this video Dr. Rebecca Futo Kennedy explores a much debated question and that is what kind of civilization was ancient Egypt?

Was it strictly an African Civilization? If it was strictly African then what kind? Indigenous North African mixed with populations that came in from the South?

Was it strictly Asiatic with only minor African influences? Or is it much more complicated with multi-cultural and multi-racial populations from the indigenous North Africans, Africans from the South and Levantine groups that migrated into North Africa from Canaan?
