Religion: The article is a simple story about an African religion.  It talks about gods, settlers, traders, and interesting countries in Africa.

Cool article about where African got many of its main religions. This goes under religions because it talks about how Egypt was first known source of religion worshipping many gods, then their were the native Bantu people of Africa who introduced monotheism and that is where African started off with religions.

This photo shows how whites water fountains were very up scaled and fancy when the blacks had to drink out of a fountain with all of the pipes showing and room temperature water. The whites felt like the blacks were not there equal.
