This course discusses the various forces that helped in shaping the history and life experiences of the peoples of pre-colonial West Africa.
Special attention will be paid to the rise and fall of such great empires as Ghana, Mali, and Songhay, and the importance of both the trans-Saharan trade and the trans-Atlantic slave trade in shaping that history.
Students must enroll under the Hist 3006 course number for this class to count toward the History major or minor.
