Title: Mansa Musa and Islam in Africa/Crash Course World History

John Green teaches you about Sub-Saharan Africa! So, what exactly was going on there?

John not only covers the West African Malian Empire, which is the one Mansa Musa ruled, but he discusses the Ghana Empire and even gets over to East Africa as well to discuss the trade-based city-states of Mogadishu, Mombasa, and Zanzibar. In addition to all this, John considers emigrating to Canada.
