Hannibal of Carthage

Hannibal of Carthage may be the greatest military commander. I respect the courage that he had as he lead his people through many battles. He lived between 247 B.C.- 183 B.C. He is an example of the greatness that exists within us as African-Americans. I am thankful to be a black man without shame, guilt, or a desire to change that reality.
