Hannibal Barca Bey (Hannibal of Carthage)

Last week, Duckworth of Tokyo 24, his photographer, and myself sat down in my living room, and had a very intellectual conversation about the merrits of Black History Month, and its relation to African Americans, and Africans.  Long story short, the conversation boiled down to us discovering one of the most bad-ass dark-skinned warriors of all time.  Hannibal of Carthage would legit make Leonidas piss in his red banana-hammock.   Check the video series below about this epic warrior who was credited as the father of advanced military strategy.  And if your a youth who’s still in school, when Black History Month rolls around, tell your teachers you want to learn about Hannibal Barca Bey.

  1. they need to make a movie about this guys. he was one of the only forces to truly put up a good resistance to the Romans before the Germanic tribes. this story needs to be told!!!

    Cathage was a great mini civilization in North Africa (modern day Tunisia???) and what Hannibal tried to do was nothing short of epic!!!!
