  16. 16.Describe how oral traditions, proverbs, and music are key features of Africa's cultural legacy.

    Oral traditions are messages that are transmitted orally from one generation to another. The messages may be passed down through speech or song and may take the form of folktales and fables, epic histories and narrations, proverbs or sayings, and songs. Oral Traditions make it possible for a society to pass knowledge across generations without writing. They help people make sense of the world and are used to teach children and adults about important aspects of their culture.

    17.How did the Songhai Empire strengthen Islam?

    "Askia the Great", was the ruler of the African Songhai Empire in the latter part of the 15th century. He was a devout Muslim. During his rule, he ordered the construction of numerous Mosques and Muslim Schools where he would later promote the visit and lectures from important Scholars throughout the region. He also recruited Muslim scholars from Egypt and Morocco to come to his kingdom in order to spread the word of Islam among the citizens.
    FROM THE BOOK...Askia Muhammad strengthened the influence of Islam within the empire. He appointed Muslim judges to enforce laws. These laws were based on the Quran, the holy book of Islam. Since the Quran was written in Arabic, Songhai’s laws were written in Arabic also.

    Muhammad further promoted scholarship as well. Songhai’s scholars learned to read and write Arabic to study the Quran. They copied old manuscripts and wrote new books in Arabic

    18. Which factors in West and East Africa allowed their cultures to endure?

    Both regions had very powerful rulers. The West was reigned by the kingdoms of Ghana, Mali, and Somalia which existed in the centuries around 800 CE and 1350 CE. These were localized along the Niger River. The East was reigned by the Egyptian and Nubian Kingdoms. However, these civilizations developed tenths of centuries earlier than the West. Around 1800 BCE to 1000 BCE.

    What both regions had in common were their extensive trade networks. The West traded goods such as gold, copper, and salt in exchange for manufactured goods such as textiles and leather from Northern Africa, The Middle East, and Europe. The East also had very active trading routes, setting the world's first connections with India and China.
