Guest Appearance in Mrs. Herlihy’s AP World
Much of the information presented here comes from John Reader’s book, Africa: A Biography of the Continent and The Henry Louis Gates video series, The Wonders of Africa. It is intended for Mrs. Herlihy’s AP World students . Thanks for inviting me to your class Mrs. Herlihy. Best of luck to the students taking the AP exam.
