If you want to discover the captivating history of West Africa, then pay attention....
Beginning in prehistoric times, West Africa has always been an incredible region. Early nomadic tribes settled into some of the earliest communities on Earth and learned how to work with metal. Various West African tribes then became adept at working with metal and were some of the most skilled artisans in the world.
As civilizations developed in West Africa, nomadic tribes turned into urban societies that built kingdoms. Eventually, some of the greatest leaders in the world created mighty West African empires. Men like Sundiata Keita, Muhammad I Askia, Mansa Musa I, and others were brilliant leaders who built some of the richest empires in the world.
As the empires collapsed, the age of the transatlantic slave trade began. Over hundreds of years, West Africa was destabilized by slavery and colonialization. However, after World War II, a surge of independence began.
