Ghana in Western Africa in the middle ages flourished due to growing trade with the Arabs. Ghana was very wealthy due to the mass amount of gold mines and salt too! Arabs had traded a religion called Islam the Ghana would truly accept. Many nations came for gold to trade and make coins and salt to preserve food when crops had failed. Due to the Gold-Salt trade, Ghana had flourished!
Mali (after Ghana) in West Africa in the Middle ages was amazing. Mali had become a empire after Ghana and Mali had grown. Mali was very open to change like when the Arabs had come to Mali and had witnessed Islam. Mali wanted to practice this new religion and was widely accepted . Due to that Mali had many places to learn and learn the Muslim faith. Muslim countries from around to world wanted to come to Mali for knowledge. Mali was a sure success.
Songhai in the middle ages started off well but later failed badly. Songhai started off as the small city of Gao but later grew power and conquered the city of Djennebé for itself. Songhai grew in size but later fell. The Moroccan kingdom had weakened the Songhai and was taken over by Moroccan rule. Songhai was strong but did crumble as a nation.
