One of the most important parts of West African culture are oral traditions through the griots. The griots memorized stories, sayings, and the history of their city or town. Every village had its own griot. These people were living libraries of African culture and history. The griot kept records of all births, deaths, and marriages and cultural traditions through the generations of the village or family. Some griots could tell the ancestry of families going back generations.

The griot legacy goes back to the 15th century from the Mandinka empire of Mali. Up through the 19th century griots have told and retold the history of the empire through generations keeping the stories and traditions alive.

End of Presentation

The Muslims moved into Africa during the 7th century and spread quickly, due primarily to a healthy trade with West Africa. Over the next 200 years Mali and Songhai accepted Islam and the new faith brought many changes and left a lasting mark on the culture of West Africa.

Africans blended their new religions with their own culture. Whereas, they prayed in Arabic, they also prayed to the spirits of their ancestors as they had done for centuries. But Islam left a lasting impression on all aspects of the African culture.

In 1240 CE, the Mande people conquered Kumbi. They took over the trade routes to North Africa and built their own empire. The early leaders of Mali accepted Islam, but did not follow all of its teachings. In 1312, Mansu Musa, the new leader became a devout Muslim. Under his leadership, Mali became a major crossroads of the ancient Islamic world.

Power point #2 is entitled, The Influence of Islam and contains 14 slides and covers the following:
