In the first segment, Harvard University professor Henry Louis Gates, Jr. travels through the old kingdoms of Asante and Dahomey in Ghana and Benin to learn the real story of the transatlantic slave trade. From slave castles on the coast to royal courts in the interior, he finds both pride in these powerful African kingdoms, and discomfort about the source of their wealth and power. In the second segment, Gates travels to Ethiopia to investigate the history of Christianity in the ancient civilization. For over 1600 years, Ethiopia was a Christian kingdom whose rulers traced their lineage back to Solomon and the Queen of Sheba.

Wonders of the African world. with Henry Louis Gates Jr. ( Visual )
1 edition published in 2005 in English and held by 7 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Two programs in a series that travels through twelve African countries and more than 5,000 years. In the first segment, Harvard University professor Henry Louis Gates, Jr. visits Egypt and Sudan in search of Nubia, an ancient African civilization which once rivaled Egypt. Pyramids, ruined temples and royal tombs survive in the deserts of Sudan. Along the Nile lie the ruins of an ancient Nubian capital: the oldest city so far uncovered in Africa. In the second segment, Gates travels along the coast of Kenya and Tanzania to the island of Zanzibar in search of the origins of Swahili heritage. Are the Swahili people truly African? On the island of Lamu, Gates finds people proud of their Arab ancestry only, believing their civilization owes little to Africa. On Zanzibar, two encounters--one with the Canon of the Anglican Cathedral and the other with a Black descendant of Zanzibar's most notorious slave trader--give him an insight into the Swahilis' troubled and bloody history
