Most scholars, in my own opinion, have been shooting down the whole "Cleopatra is Black" theory; judging by documentaries and such. But, I kinda agree. Miroku4444 is correct as well. I had a friend in high school who's Egyptian. Funny thing is when he told me he was African American, I laughed at him and said, "Yeah, right! You're an Arab!" But passports prove me wrong each time. It's highly possible that she was Black, but colored like me (tan). Or, she could have very well have some Middle Eastern heritage. One thing is certain though. There hasn't been a dark Egyptian since before Christ.
