The Old African Empires grayson fuller

Modern Ghana

Ancient Ghana began about 7th century. This flag is a part of the Republic of Ghana, not ancient Ghana. Ghana was one of the first empires in West Africa. The people of Ghana grew wealthy from trade. They would trade gold for salt! Ghana began to fall about 11th century. Ghana today is a republic. It is located in the west part of Africa.

....................................... Mali's "PEACE"................................

Mali was one of the other west African empire. The image above is Mali's new peace accord. Mali, like Ghana, vazlued trade for wealth. At the beginning of the expansion, Mali conquered Songhai (Songhay). But when Mali began to decline, Songhai got their independence through rebellion. Mali today is a country that has a democratic republic, until a military coup in 2012. Mali got rich mainly from trading gold for salt. One of their most famous rulers was Mansa Musa. Mali began to decline the same as Ghana did....................................... ;0

Trade in Mali.

Songhai was the other west African empire. Early on in exsistence, Songhai was conquered by Mali. Then they got their independence from Mali through rebellion. after Mali fell, Songhai began to expand. Like the others, Songhai grew wealthy from trade. I don't know about modern day, because all the pictures are just people. Songhai is not a country, like all the others in this project. Songhai fell from the same reasons as Ghana and Mali.

The other empire of this project is actually in the south part of Africa. Like all the others, Zimbabwe grew wealth and fell like the others.
