    In the Spirit of Sankofa,


    ... Good stuff, thanks for posting it:


    Trying to brush off Socrates’ origin in this facetious manner does not solve the issue. Of course, there are ancient portrait sculptures of Socrates showing him as a Black man, or Ethiopian, with broad nostrils, snub-nose, and a wide mouth. Socrates describes himself as “snub-nosed” in Xenophon’s Symposium. Also, Socrates’ pupil, Alcibiades (in Plato’s Symposium) compares him to a Silenus and a satyr (215b).

    Peace In,
