Black Kingdoms Black Peoples. The West African Heritage.


The ancient societies of West Africa form an endlessly vivid tapestry of culture, history, art, religion and customs. For centuries their people were a mystery to the West, known manly as traders in gold and the source of forced labour, but also alternately misunderstood and admired as the makers of magnificent carvings and as the followers of potent cults.
