Cleopatra's mother 'was African'

Cleopatra, the last Egyptian Pharaoh and renowned for her beauty, was part African, says a BBC team which believes it has found her sister's tomb.

Queen Cleopatra was a descendant of Ptolemy, the Macedonian general who ruled Egypt after Alexander the Great.

But remains of the queen's sister Princess Arsinoe, found in Ephesus, Turkey, indicate that her mother had an "African" skeleton.

It seem's that some white folks have discovered that Cleopatra's "mother" was an African. Dr. Clarke or Dr. Ben or Runoko Rashidi could have easily have told them that and more.

Well let's see what they have to say about this latest info.
