Then read “The Pilgrimage of Mansa Musa by Chihad Al-Umari writing between 1342-1349Pilgrimage of Mansa Musa.pdf
Discussion Question: What do you consider the most significant obstacle historians face in recreating Africa’s history and is Mansa Musa one of those good written sources that can fix the problem?
In your two-paragraph post:
Your first paragraph should discuss what you consider the most significant obstacle we face in recreating Africa’s past (use Parker and Rathbone for this). Don’t forget to cite your evidence.
Your second paragraph should argue whether or not “The Pilgrimage of Mansa” is a valid historical source. You may want to consider whether or not it is a primary source (it is often described as one) which would make it a strong piece of evidence.
