A storyboard I created to showcase a few events about the Mali Empire.

Storyboard Text

  • It is I, Mansa Sundiata Keita, your savior! 
  • There was a man named Sundiata Keita. He founded the Mali Empire
  • after the fall of the Kingdom of Ghana. 
  • Became Emperor in 1307
  • Founded in 1235
  • The Mali Empire started out as any kingdom would, they were very 
  • cooperative and did things to benefit the community as a whole.
  • Died c. 1255
  • Everything was going smoothly until the king drowned unexpectedly
  • one day. Everyone went into despair about who would take the throne! 
  • After many unsuccessful reigns led by his successors, the throne
  • passed on to Sundiata's nephew, who came to be known as Mansa Musa. 
  • Mansa Musa was a devout Muslim and built many mosques and 
  • schools dedicated to teaching others about the Holy Qur'an 
  • Mansa Musa continued to shape the Mali Empire into what we see 
  • today. Mansa Musa became so rich that he is one of the richest men in the
  • world to date.  He later died in 1337 due to natural causes.
