Blacks in Antiquity: Ethiopians in the Graeco-Roman Experience, 1970

book cover with title

Author: Snowden, Frank

One Black classicist, Frank Snowden, who taught for most of his life at Howard University, inspired fresh discussion with his argument that racism and color-based prejudice were distinctly modern phenomena.
