No. In general, various DNA studies have found that the gene frequencies of modern North African populations are intermediate between those of the Near East, southern Europe and Sub Saharan Africa, though the
frequency distributions of the non-recombining portion of the Y chromosome of modern Egyptian population appear to be much more similar to those of the Middle East than to any sub-Saharan African population.

Both Neil and Gray are both correct. The current political boundaries of Egypt (and peoples identified as "Egyptian" today) are primarily descendants of the northern portion of what was the expansive empire of Egypt during the thousands of years of its civilization. Therefore their primary genetic connections are within the Middle East. But at various points the empire of Egypt extended well into sub-Saharan Africa and at one point the Kushites, a "black" African kingdom to the south, took over Egypt's throne for 100 years before reverting back to being a tributary of northern Egypt. So a large proportion of the southern population would have had genetic input from sub-Saharan Africa, but their descendants are now in the nation of Sudan.
The ancient kingdoms also had trading and political ties across the Mediterranean and into Central Asia. In fact their last dynasty of pharaohs, the Ptolemys (which included Cleopatra) were of Greek ancestry. One only has to look at the many examples of the Egyptians very realistic depictions of themselves to see that they were a very diverse population during the long dominance of their civilization in the region.

Southern-Egyptians were, the Nubians, Egypt lies in a 'crossover' zone ethnicity-wise of course, so you have all kinds of ethnicities within ancient-Egypt.

No, they had nothing to do with Sub Saharan people. they were North African/Middle Eastern Caucasoids. Even though there are some who look like they are mixed with SSA, they still mostly look North African/Middle Eastern/Mediterranean.
