Today we talked about the strengths of West African civilizations that ultimately prevented the Europeans from colonizing West Africa. We discussed the contextual changes that made Europeans look to Africa for the slave trade, and ultimately started evaluating some arguments about the role West African societies played in this system.
We also started working on our West African Slave Trade evaluations, which are due on Friday. We'll spend time tomorrow and Thursday working on this assignment as well. I've linked a folder below that includes all three readings as well as the evidence/analysis table.
Here is the link!
