The debut title in the acclaimed "From African Beginnings" series explores the complex and fascinating history of Africa's most ancient—and advanced—civilizations. Coretta Scott King Award winner James Haskins and Kathleen Benson take readers back in time to visit the kingdoms of Kush, whose black pharaohs ruled Egypt for nearly a century; Ghana, where between A.D. 450 and 1230 more gold was traded than anywhere else in the world; and many others. Lush illustrations by Coretta Scott King Honor artist Floyd Cooper evoke the richly layered heritage of the African continent and its people and how they made a powerful impact on world history.
