  1. You have watched episodes from documentary series on Africa, those by Ali Mazrui, and Zeinab Badawi. Imagine that you have been commissioned to come up with a similar documentary series that confines itself to Africa before the Europeans arrived; the series is to have no more than six episodes. Write up a prospectus for that documentary series that outlines
    • what you intend to cover,
    • the order in which you intend to cover it.
    • Justify why you have chosen not only what to discuss in your documentary, but also why you are doing it in a particular way.
    • Make sure to include specific examples and details.
  2. It is the eve of European colonial penetration. You have traveled widely throughout Africa south of the Sahara, are familiar with the strengths and weaknesses of oral tradition as well as having an intimate knowledge of the geography, languages, and history of that part of the continent. Using this special knowledge, try to convince the European powers not to colonize the continent. You are also trying to convince these people by using positive, specific evidence in the form of details and examples and not by threats or bribery. Warning: avoid any lengthy discussion of European society.
