This is the second lesson in a scheme of work about the Atlantic Slave Trade. In this lesson, pupils attempt to prove that "civilisation" existed in Africa before the start of the slave trade. In particular, pupils use evidence and sources to respond to a quote from David Hume.
This lesson includes -
*Attitudes of Europeans towards Africa during the slave trade.
* Examples of civilisation and technology in Africa before the slave trade.
* Investigation of the Mali Empire as an example of civilisation in Africa before the slave trade
* Homework task to get students to respond to European attitudes towards Africa based on the evidence they have considered during the lesson.
NB: The main tasks requires an information sheet. The link for these worksheets is included in the notes on slide 6
