Hey guys! As promised, our video is done! We hope you enjoy it as much as we did making it. Special credits to Elijah's African friend, Alvin Philemon, who helped us with this! 

Mansa Musa was one of the richest kings that lived in 14th century CE. His pilgrimage to Mecca made Mali so famous that even Europeans knew of Mali’s existence at that time. Mansa Musa also spread Islam as a religion to the countries that he had visited.
