In History (Core) we have been learning about some of the different things that the African's did for Mansa Musa. For example the Griots, slaves, etc. All these people would gather from all over the Sahara to trade, tell stories, etc. In our DBQ we got to chose from one of these examples, and play that role. I had chose to be a Griot. 
     What the Griot does, is that it tells lesson learning stories.  It also gives stories from their very own cultrue/religion. I like being a Griot, because all the others seem as if they were doing something boring. But, as a matter a fact, I get to share my generation stories with others, and give them maybe something great to learn and use in the future with their kids or family members.
