Rome papered with what could be the ‘first black pope’
March 3, 2013
Peter Turkson of Ghana is one of the names that sound more to replace Pope Benedict XVI.
It is hoped the meeting of the conclave to elect a new pope, and the city of Rome is being plastered with the image of what could be the first black pope, Peter Turkson of Ghana.
Rome dawned covered of posters with one of the possible replacements of Benedict XVI, Cardinal Peter Turkson, and can be read “in the conclave vote for Peter Turkson,”.
If he is elected, he would be the first black pope in history and the first not European.
In the next few weeks the Cardinals will meet in the Vatican to decide who will be the new representative of the Catholic Church.
