In my World Civilizations class, we had talked about the early civilizations in Africa. And for a part of our notes we only had to know that Mansa Musa was a very wealthy West African king, and that he gave away alot of gold. What exactly is the whole story? Someone had also mentioned Timbuktu before but I am still clueless about it's significance. If anyone knows any good sources that I can look up I would appreciate it! - Thanks!
