Black Women in Antiquity provides an overview of the black queens, madonnas, and goddesses who dominated the history and imagination of ancient times. The authors have concentrated on Ethiopia and Egypt because of the documents of the Nile Valley are voluminous...because the imagination of the world, not just that of Afrika, was haunted by these women. They are just as prominent a feature of European mythology as of African reality.
