Queen Cleopatra

A story of wasted potential

By Natasja RosePublished 4 months ago 1 min read

Cleopatra was:

  • A skilled diplomat and politician
  • Gifted in languages and oration
  • Powerful and intelligent

Cleopatra was NOT

  • African-American
  • Sub-Saharan

I regret the missed opportunity to tell the stories of actual Black Queens.

I feel sorry for everyone who attached their name to this project, and had their credibility tanked.

    I'm sorry, Natasja, I'm not familiar with the project. But thank you for warning me away.

    I've seen the previews for this documentary and that was enough to tell me I did not want to watch it. I love all thongs ancient Egyptian, but this was not enticing at all. You are not alone in feeling let down by the execution of that project.

    Interesting. I have not seen this one. I would also like to see more black queens on screen!
