Product Description
This is a 14 slide, highly animated, power point presentation on the Kingdoms of Medieval Africa: The Influence of Islam. All the slides are editable so you can adjust your presentation as you see fit.

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.

The presentation covers the following:
