Summary: This documentary demonstrates that Timbuktu was a leading cultural, economic, scientific and religious center that made a significant and lasting impact on Africa and the entire world. The film documents that Africa had vibrant scholarly institutions and written cultures long before European intervention. It establishes the importance of preserving ancient manuscripts as an exciting and empowering legacy for Africana scholarship today.This disc is a recorded DVD and may not play on all DVD players or drives.
