Between the 9th and 11th centuries, the kingdom of Ghana was so rich that its dogs wore golden collars, and its horses, which were adorned with silken rope halters, slept on plush carpets.

In this episode, we consider the idea, feeling, and practice of love. But love as a concept is too embattled, as a feeling too limiting, and as a practice inadequate. Then there is the concept of ɔdɔ, which pokes at deep connection. It is one thing for a person to love the idea of you and what you can do for them; it is quite another for that person to love you for who you really and truly are. How do we know the difference and what do we do with that distinction? Stay tuned.

The Empire of Wagadu (Ouagadou), more commonly known as the Ghana Empire, was a powerful state in the Medieval Sahel of West Africa, and one of the earliest in written record. With origins in antiquity and a reputation for wealth and glory in contemporary sources, it has long been an icon of Black history, though today it tends to be overshadowed by the later Mali Empire.

The Mali Empire was one of the largest and most prosperous empires in Africa, reaching its peak under the rule of Mansa Musa in the 14th century. However, after Mansa Musa's death, the empire began to decline. This decline was due to a number of factors, including succession crises, civil war, and the rise of the Songhai Kingdom.

In this video, we will explore the factors that led to the fall of the Mali Empire. We will discuss the succession crises that followed Mansa Musa's death, the civil wars that broke out within the empire, and the rise of the Songhai Kingdom. We will also discuss the legacy of the Mali Empire and its impact on the world.
