TITLE: SUNDIATA: LION KING OF MALI
AUTHOR: DAVID WISNIEWSKI
ILLUSTRATOR: DAVID WISNIEWSKI
DESCRIPTION: We relive the ancient tale of the founder of the Great Kingdom of Mali and the heroic tale of this young ruler’s triumphs over physical limitations and dangerous political rivals to found one of the greatest nations of all time.
WHY I LIKE THIS BOOK: An historical documentation of a great African ruler is an important tool to fill a tremendous gap in information regarding the ancient world and the role played by people of African ancestry. Though born under trying circumstances we see how the wisdom of elders and a mothers love encouraged a child to rise above his circumstances and found a great nation. Readers of all ages can be inspired by this story which has applications even today. This book can fuel vigorous discussions on how to overcome limitations and live our dreams . Furthermore, we have a springboard into the study of other great leaders and nations that emerged from the continent we know as Africa.
