Wonders of the African world( Visual )

10 editions published between 1999 and 2005 in English and held by 197 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. 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. Journeys to rock-hewn churches, mountain monasteries, royal shrines, and on to Aksum, birthplace of an ancient civilization, and home, the Ethiopians believe, to the Lost Ark of the Covenant
