In this video, we address and discuss whether or not the ancient Colchians that Herodotus described were actually Egyptian or Africans in general?

As many people have debated we discuss the possibility of this ancient people actually being black and why is that controversial?

Dr. Kennedy goes on to discuss the racial motivation behind these questions, how debates surrounding Black Athena contribute to this argument and she points out that the term black was often applied to ancient Africans including the ancient Egyptians and how black peoples in the ancient world were able to live quite well outside of Africa in Antiquity.
