Storyboard Text

  • I traveled thousands of miles in a single journey, building mosques and universities in my honor across Africa.
  • We will miss you father.
  • The Mali Empire was located in West Africa. The empire became extremely rich off trade of gold and salt.
  • Mansa Musa was one of the kings of this empire, and was considered to be one of the wealthiest kings of all time.
  • You asked for this, now you shall suffer. We shall no longer stay with the failed Mali empire.
  • Mansa Musa died in 1337. The power went to his sons, who were to rule the Mali Empire after him.
  • A new, more powerful empire would take Mali's place. The Songhai empire would be wealthier and larger than the Mali Empire ever was, and it too thrived on trade.
  • His sons fought for power over the empire, and eventually they could no longer keep political control.
  • The empire began to fracture, and parts began to break off.
  • Eventually, the Mali Empire was no more.
