  24. 32. culture The history of Africa and its economic and social development is not unitary. The contacts between peoples have been scarce due to the difficulty of communication, especially between north and south.  Both the Sahara Desert and the equatorial forest, this has led to significant barriers for people.  In the north, on the Mediterranean coast, there were great empires, among which are the of Egypt, Carthage, Rome and Islam, contact with Western civilizations.  In the Sahel there were also great empires that dominated part of the area, although not simultaneous, and there was no common border. It was in the region of Niger where there was a greater continuity of empires.
  25. 34. culture Africa was the birthplace of the human species between 8 million and 5 million years ago. Today, the vast majority of its inhabitants are of indigenous origin. People across the continent are remarkably diverse by just about any measure: They speak a vast number of different languages, practice hundreds of distinct religions, live in a variety of types of dwellings, and engage in a wide range of economic activities. 
  26. 36. culture The music, art, literature, and cultural practices of Africa have provoked interest and respect throughout the world. The old belief that Africa is somehow childlike in its cultural development has been denounced as people become more familiar with the rich traditions of the continent. The material and inherent value of African art steadily increases in the world market. The music and literature of these peoples have found their way into houses and classrooms around the globe. We are beginning to learn through the works of scholars, film makers, and writers that Africans can teach us much more than we can show them. 
  27. 38. Many cultural and linguistic innovations spread along trade routes, such as (  lingua francae  ), the  Fulfulde  (West Africa), the  Hausa  in  Nigeria  and  Niger  , the  lingala  , the  Congo  , the  Kiswahili  in East Africa and the Arab north.
