Ghana Empire
An advertisement is presented before the video. This two-minute video is about the Ghana empire, located in West Africa. It tells how it became a wealthy empire because they were in the center of the caravan routes and taxed other Muslims, during the gold-salt trade. The people of Ghana didn't want to adopt the Muslim religion, but later on, the desert Arabs invaded their territory and forced them to practice the Muslim religion, or else they would be killed.
