Although each empire rose to assert its power, they coexisted independently for centuries. At its peak (1200-1300), the Mali Empire covered an area that encompasses significant portions of the present-day country of Mali, southern and western Mauritania and Senegal. Note that the old kingdoms of Mali and Ghana are not the present-day countries of Mali and Ghana. Predominately a savannah, this vast region has two seasonsa rainy season and a dry season, the latter being the longer of the two. The Mande-speaking peoples living in present-day Mali (Bamana, Senufo and Dogon peoples) have inhabited this area since the days of the Mali Empire. Today, Mande-speaking peoples live in almost all parts of West Africa, having migrated in search of trade or having been displaced by war or climatic conditions. Their migrations are indicative of the mobility of African peoples in many parts of Africa.
African Masks The 2500000 Bambara people, also called bamana, form the largest ethnic group Having conquered the indigenous peoples, the Lunda gradually assimilated http://www.vub.ac.be/BIBLIO/nieuwenhuysen/african-art/african-art-collection-mas
Extractions: (of variable age, artistic quality, and degree of authenticity) Many African societies see masks as mediators between the living world and the supernatural world of the dead, ancestors and other entities. Masks became and still become the attribute of a dressed up dancer who gave it life and word at the time of ceremonies. The sculptor begins by cutting a piece of wood and leaving it to dry in the sun; if it cracks, it cannot be used for a mask. African sculptors see wood as a complex living material and believe each piece can add its own feature to their work. Having made certain the wood is suitable, the sculptor begins, using an azde to carve the main features, a chisel to work on details and a rough leaf to sand the piece.

Extractions: Race and Ethnicity African Ethnic Groups and Languages George Peter Murdock found about 2700 ethnic groups in his path-breaking classification of 1959 based on geography, social organization, language, and history. However, it is likely that such classifications will remain contentious for the foreseeable future. The question of defining ethnic groups and naming them has been extremely complicated because it was often Europeans rather than Africans who initially developed these schema. Furthermore there are many spelling variations for the names as they were written down. The following reference books help in sorting out this puzzle.

UN Chronicle | Languages As Historical Archives Many centuries before, peoples of the Guinea Coast of africa evolved a their agricultural productivity by domesticating african rice, indigenous to the http://www.un.org/Pubs/chronicle/2003/issue4/0403p68.asp
Extractions: In the eighteenth century, the British New World colony of South Carolina prospered from the raising and exporting of rice. What does this have to do with linguistics, agriculture and development in the modern day? The answer is a salutary warning against unexamined assumptions: African agricultural technology created the prosperity of colonial Carolina. Many centuries before, peoples of the Guinea Coast of Africa evolved a sophisticated and highly efficient technology for growing abundant crops of African rice, Oryza glaberima. Taking advantage of the tidal estuaries of rivers flowing into the Atlantic, they built levees and channels to redirect the ebb and flow of the tides onto their fields. Before the planting season, African farmers channeled to their fields salty seawater flowing into the estuaries at high tide. Some days or weeks later, they let fresh water flow onto the plots: the salty water had killed the weeds and seeds, and then the fresh water washed away the salty water and leached the salt from the soil. At the same time, it deposited a fresh layer of silt, enriching the soil for the rice crop to be planted. Carolina planters gained access to this technology in the eighteenth century by importing experts from the Guinea Coast. But unlike modern-day expatriate advisers, these experts crossed the Atlantic not as a privileged group but as slaves, and so their seminal role in colonial Carolina agriculture long remained unnoticed. Only in the past twenty years, through the work of scholars, such as Professor Judith Carney and Dr. Edda Fields, has their contribution finally begun to gain the recognition it has long deserved.

Extractions: David Robinson Here is a second edition of our newsletter. We have some new members of APAHS, who will now be incorporated into the electronic mailing list and receive this version. There is no reason why we could not publish this twice a year, given the simplicity of putting things together; the essential thing would be to receive copy via diskette or e-mail, so that I can put it directly in without having to retype. I apologize to David Conrad for not giving the Table of Contents of his first 3 items in the reports below; I had to type his material in, after failing to scan it. I will ask Jonathan Miran, one of our graduate students who is also working at H-Net here, to put this on the web page for H-Africa. You can find this by going to the H-Net home page: I do not have much to report here about manuscripts. See the minutes below for the Columbus discussion. The door is still open at MSU Press, but probably the press will require subsidy to publish. A number of things, as usual, are in the works in Madison. About the Chicago ASA, which I now see is located at the end of October and not around Thanksgiving. We should try to insure 2 events: the business meeting and the roundtable. Ideas for the roundtable? I thought we might try to focus on historical sources and teaching, along the lines of what Lonsdale talks of writing below. What are your ideas and suggestions for participants? Please communicate quickly, the deadline is less than a month away.
