Black Athena Revisited
Mary R. Lefkowitz and Guy MacLean Rogers of Wellesley College examine archaeological data, and the surviving evidence of Egyptian elements in Greek philosophy and science and explain why the notion of a "Black Athena" as proposed in the controversial three-volume work by Martin Bernal "Black Athena: The Afroasiatic Roots of Classical Civilization" is at best misleading, factually inaccurate and a work that borders on racism.
