Uganda - 1,477 words
The people of Uganda have had many types of governments during their long history, but until the coming of British Colonialism, there was no central government. Originally government was in the hands of the tribal groups who elected their own leaders and made their own laws, which all members of their group were expected to follow. Later some central authority was given to the kings of the various tribes, including the largest of these, the Buganda, whose ruler, the Kabaka, was considered the king and had ultimate authority over his people and their land ( Cavendish, 31). Mutesa II, whose full name was Sir Edward William David Walugembe Mutebi Luwangula Mutesa, was the Kababa of the East Afr ...

Was Colonialism Good For Uganda? - 2,084 words
Introduction The past is another country, where it is only possible to go as a tourist, and which we will never fully understand. We can describe what we see, but it is far more difficult to know why people acted in the way they did, or what they believed, and why they believed it. Uganda too is another country, which did not even exist before the white man went there. Even the name reflects the ideas of the first explorers, whose gateway into the new territory was via the Buganda tribe, whom they were later to use as their colonial agents as British rule was extended. Those who discovered Ugandan and the source of the Nile which the first explorers were seeking - men such as Speke and Stanl ...

African Traditional Religion - 1,285 words
... The other women chant: 'She has come into a world of trouble: sickness is in the world, and cold and pain; the pain you knew, the sickness with which you were familiar'. The mother prays on: 'Let her sleep in peace, for there is healing in sleep. Let none among you be angry with me or with my child'. The women take up their chanting: 'Let her grow, let her become strong. Let her become full-grown. Then will she offer such a sacrifice to you that will delight your heart' (56). In this prayer we see how close the women feel to the spirit-world. They enter into it and they solicit help from it. The physical and spiritual world mingles here in a harmony of 'going' and 'coming'. The women dep ...

Central American Civilization - 608 words
According to the evidence, Central American civilization was greatly influenced by East African culture, specially from Ethiopia, Kemet, or Meroe. It is believed that one or more of these civilizations crossed the Atlantic between 1200 and 400 B.C. Some scholars including Charles Joyner, Richard S. Price, and Gary Nash have recognized the cultural amalgamation and inter-mixing of Native Americans and Europeans or Europeans and Africans. Nevertheless, few focus on the widespread mixing that happened between Native Americans and Africans, the impact each had on the other, and how people like those in Indian Woods persist to endure as bi-racial and tri-racial people who have retained much of th ...

Saleh Aljabry - 879 words
Despite the tremendous growth of hip hop music during the late 1980s, it was not until the early 1990s that the first album of Tanzanian rap appeared. Saleh Aljabry (otherwise known as Saleh J) released the first Tanzanian rap album, Swahili Rap. The album immediately became a sensation all over the country and, in many ways, set a high standard for future Tanzanian tappers. Most of the songs were based on the music and rhythms of American artists, such as Vanilla Ice's "Ice Ice Baby" and Naughty by Nature's "O.P.P." Instead of translating the song from English to Swahili, however, Aljabry used the American raps as a framework to develop his own ideas--ideas pertinent to Tanzanian lifestyles ...
