By no stretch of any imagination would I call myself a Biblical Scholar. But….
Ten books into researching the Black Madonna Phenomenon and I get shoved into the Bible.
OK. I’ll start there.
Song of Solomon : I am black, but comely, O ye daughters of Jerusalem, as the tents of Kedar, as the curtains of Solomon.
 Look not upon me, because I am black, because the sun hath looked upon me: my mother’s children were angry with me; they made me the keeper of the vineyards; but mine own vineyard have I not kept.
