The Hidden History of Africa Before the Slave Trade is a visually stunning presentation that addresses one key question: What history do #Blackpeople have before the #slavetrade started?
This lecture discusses the #Empire of #Mali, the #YorubaKingdoms, Medieval Sudan, Medieval #Ethiopia and the #EastAfrican Coast. These civilisations have left behind a splendid array of evidence that is discussed in the lecture. This evidence includes wonderful #artefacts illuminated manuscripts, and impressive architecture. A discussion will follow the presentation.
