Discussion Questions
What do you think? Based on the evidence provided, what "race" would you say hannibal belonged to?

Why is Hannibal's "race" so important to modern historians? Would Hannibal's "race" have been important in 220 B.C.? Why or Why not?


Above: A marble bust, reputedly of Hannibal, originally found at the ancient city-state of Capua in Italy. Although White historians cry foul when Hannibal is depicted as Black or African, they have no objections when he is depicted as White, even though there are no images or verbal depictions or descriptions of Hannibal that exist that state that he is Black or White. Race and racism are modern ideas created less than 500 years ago by White people to justify the Trans-Atlantic Slave Trade, or more appropriately, the "African Holocaust" as Black historians refer to it.

HANNIBAL BARCA (THE NORTH AFRAKAN WARRIOR) (3:46 mins)

The History Chanel, in it‘s newest documentary series, Barbarians Rising, tackles the fall of Rome over the course of 700 years of invasions. However, the most recent episode that aired Monday depicts Hannibal of Carthage as a Black man, and many white history buffs are crying foul over the “historical inaccuracy.”

In the series, Hannibal is portrayed by Black British actor Nicholas Pinnock. The famous Carthaginian was a thorn in the empire’s side. He became a general at the age of 26 and managed to unite barbarian tribes to stop Rome’s imperial rise. The military genius was famous for climbing the Alps with war elephants whose sole purpose was to stomp the Roman army.

Hannibal ultimately wanted to invade Rome, but he failed to do so.

There have been debates over the race of Hannibal. This debate still continues till this day.
