Storyboard Text

  • 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.
