 Nubians: a non-Arab people.  They were, it seems, Christian - or some of them still were - as late as the 17th century.

From my Christian sourcebook, Operation World, its discussion of minority groups in Egypt: 'The Nubians of Upper Egypt.  For centuries a Christian kingdom, but eventually under pressure [and we know what kind of 'pressure' that would have been- CM] Nubians became Muslim in the 17th century.  Today there are only a handful of Christians.  Only a minority still speak the two main Nubian dialects, but they are culturally distinct.  Many are poor, their ancestral lands flooded as a result of the Aswan dam".
