By Hassimi Oumarou Maiga

By balancing written background with the African oral culture, this publication conceptualizes the integrations between various peoples of Africa and particularly one of the Songhoy humans. Drawing from a few educational disciplines and unique study that records the oral and literate traditions of the Songhoy humans, Hassimi Oumarou Maiga deals a different interpretation of indigenous Songhoy-African views on African heritage, tradition and schooling from antiquity to the current day and from continental Africa to the global African Diaspora. In explaining the cosmology, philosophy, values and strategy of indigenous, non-Muslim schooling, this e-book additionally corrects and balances the notion of the Songhoy as a unconditionally Muslim society. The legacy of the Songhoy Empire, Maiga argues, is as a version of African integration via its administrative and political association, which is still appropriate even this day. This publication is a vital addition for students and scholars of African background.
