African Studies Question

Learning Goal: I’m working on a african studies practice test / quiz and need an explanation and answer to help me learn.

Answer any THREE of the following FIVE questions. Please be sure to use quotation marks if including a direct quote and cite any sources used. A works cited list is not needed. Please be sure to avoid plagiarizing by doing this. Please include the question number and the question at the top of each of your responses. Points will be deducted for your failure to do so. Your responses can be anywhere between four sentences to a paragraph. There is not a minimum or maximum word/sentence count. But it is nearly impossible to address the full question with less than that (four sentences). All questions have been listed along with a lecture heading. This is to provide you with the corresponding ppt and reading dates where you can find materials to refresh your memory. You may find returning to that week’s lecture will also be of particular use in answering the questions. Please submit your quiz by Monday, December 6th by 11:59 pm.
