Should Cleopatra be included in Black History?
Cleopatra was a member of the Ptolomeic Dynasty that ruled egypt from the death of Alexander the Great til the rise of Augustus Caeser of Rome. Like the founder of the Ptolomeic Dynasty, Ptolomy I Sotor, Cleopatra was ethnicly Greek. Therefore Cleopatra should not be a part of black history month.

Any ethnicentric view of history is by definition biased and an unreliable resource. It's not to be confused with "black history" which is the history of black people. Afrocentrism argues that all history should be viewed through it's association with black people.
Because it is part of history and all history should be studied, not just black history and not just white history.
Opponents of black history month (which got its start in 1926 as Black History Week, founded by a well-respected black educator named Carter G. Woodson) come from two strains of thought: the one believes that putting a focus on black history is unfair-- since there is no white history month, why does there need to be a black one? The other says that black history month has long since achieved its goals and there's no… Read More
Black history really started in the Americas with slavery. I think that the American people recognized that slavery was a fully American experience and that black Americans are a part of what America is, that the thought that we should have a special month set aside to acknowledge that and to celebrate black Americans' history and contributions to the history of the United States.
Rosa Parks she is a huge part of African-american history!
Cleopatra used to wear a long gown with a crown and lots of makeup. It is believed that she wore thick black eyeliner, and dark blue eyeshadow. She wore red coloured lipstick made from crushed beetles, and had almost pure black hair and eyebrows / eyelashes. It is also believed that some people came across one of the most beautiful women in history 'ugly', yet very intelligent.

No--makeup has a long history, and was used as part of everyday life for years before Cleopatra. Ancient Egyptians used black galena (kohl) to line their eyes, and used oils such as castor and sesame to fight wrinkles. Green eye paint was created from malachite, and lead was used along with red ochre to make red pigments for lips and cheeks.
Most likely she was Nubian (from Nubia on the Nile R.), which had some spectacularly beautiful black women.
To celebrate all the African-Americans that fought for their rights.
Depends, but you should ask the teacher of course!
We don't know for certain if Cleopatra was black or white. The reason for this is that we don't know for certain who Cleopatra's mother was. We know that her father was white. His wife was named Cleopatra, but we don't know if this woman was Cleopatra's mother, or if she were a child of a former wife.
She was the first black model to be on the cover of sports illustrated.

If Cleopatra wore a wig at all, it would have been black. The bust supposed to be Cleopatra and all her coin portraits show her with hair styled in the Greek fashion. She may have popped on a wig for a public ceremony, though, and it certainly would have been black.

I was told by my colleague that we should write in black pen. I don't know the reason behind it though. If it's up to me, any color should be fine as long as the writing is illegible. Even if people write in black pen, if it's unreadable then what's that point. Writing classes should be included in medical courses.
