Black Athena: The Afroasiatic Roots of Classical Civilization , its three volumes first published in 1987, 1991, and 2006 respectively, is a controversial scholarly work by Martin Bernal . He discusses ancient Greece in a new light. Bernal's thesis discusses the perception of ancient Greece in relation to Greece's African and Asiatic neighbors, especially the ancient Egyptians and Phoenicians who, he believes, colonized ancient Greece.

Bernal proposes that a change in the Western perception of Greece took place from the 18th century onward and that this change fostered a subsequent denial by Western academia of any significant African and Phoenician influence on ancient Greek civilization.

Bernal rejects the theory that Greek civilization was founded by Indo-European settlers from Central Europe; that theory (which Bernal calls the Aryan model ) became generally accepted during the 19th century. Bernal defends instead what he calls the Ancient model ; the name refers to the fact that both Egyptian and Phoenician influences on the Greek world were widely accepted in Antiquity.
