Queen Charlotte and Black Servant in Lady Keppel painting

The portrayal of Queen Charlotte as a true black woman, rather than the white woman with visibly negroid features she is usually portrayed as comes as a surprise, and the complexion displayed could be a device to highlight her black roots. There are those though, who believe that she was dark-complexioned enough to be described as black rather than mixed race. I'll grant her complexion may have been that of a mixed race, but I believe the physiognomy depicted in the painting are her true features.

I extended it into a blog post and it has languished for some years. I was going to through some unpublished articles and decided to publish it. It actually goes back to 2014 and that is why the topic seems and some of the facts may be so dated.

Dude!! Where's my Afro?

When you visit online forums which discuss Afrocentric theories of civilization you notice the taunting, the baiting and the insults bandied around by the opposing parties. It can be such a turnoff that even when I am able to make an some strong points in favour of the Afrocentric side, I just give up and leave because I don't like to engage the personality types involved.
