musa: Ryan Coogler and Michael B Jordan Looking to Bring The Story of Mansa Musa to Life @balleralert Ryan Coogler and Michael B. Jordan Looking to Bring The Story of Mansa Musa to Life-blogged by @thereal__bee ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀ With the success of their first three projects: “Fruitvale Station,” “Creed” and “Black Panther”, super Director Ryan Coogler and Hollywood Star Michael B. Jordan are already teaming up for more projects. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀ According to multiple reports, the duo is now looking to start a project centered around the life of Mansa Musa. Both Coogler and Jordan feel it is important to create influential films that reflect the Black community and the contributions that have been made throughout history. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀ “You got to tell stories in today, or in the future,” says Jordan. “Or can we go back even further? There’s always one period that people want to go back to, but can we go back to Hannibal? Or Mansa Musa, destroying economies as he traveled? Can we go back to the Egyptians?” ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀ Mansa Musa was an influential African ruler in the fourteenth century. He was emperor of the Mali Empire, a land filled with gold, which he casually handed out during his religious expedition to Mecca, ultimately causing economic crises to cities that were unfamiliar with such wealth. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀ In 1324, Musa became the first Muslim ruler to trek almost four-thousand-miles. During his travels, he encountered rulers of the Middle East and Europe, which helped to put Mali on European maps. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀ He helped improve Islamic education and he also brought back government bureaucrats and architects. With the development of mosques and a major university, the city of Timbuktu became more urbanized. Musa ruled for 25 years and during that time, Western Africa was said to be at peace. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀ While there is no word on when this project will take off, the duo is already in pre-production for another film titled “Wrong Answer,” about a 2006 standardized testing scandal in Atlanta. The sequel to “Creed” is also on the way.

musa: WE WENT FROM RUNNING KINGDOMS TO NOT RUNNING NOTHING IN OUR OWN COMMUNITIES Schools will teach them slavery. African history did not start with slavery. Slavery interrupted African history. When I was in school I got told my ancestors were enslaved and before that they were swinging from trees. Then I learned that my African ancestors created the first civilisations, while in Europe they were still living in caves. Now I teach in schools and I tell young black men about Kush, Timbuktu, Sudan and the Congo. I tell them about the Moors and there integral involvement in the renaissance, how they brought hygiene to Europe. If it wasn't for their ancestors fighting themselves free, slavery would have continued. I teach them about Mansa Musa I of Mali – the 14th century African king who was named the richest person in all history.(With an inflation adjusted fortune of $400 billion, Mansa Musa I would have been considerably richer than the world’s current richest man) I tell them that there are more pyramids in Sudan than there are in Egypt. I teach them that the enslavement of their ancestors was the worlds greatest crime, that without it there would have been no industrial revolution in England. That their ancestors built that White House, because the head Architect and construction Team were African. That the American civil war and how it would have never been won if it wasn't for the African regiments. I show them they're beautiful. Not that they are superior because supremacy is the reason why the world is in Chaos. Also to love their skin because it's full of melanin. I teach them that the Europeans at the time were stupid for having to steal people and resources, they should have just asked and traded, then there would be no imminent revolution, just peace and fair trade. I teach them that Christopher Columbus had an African Navigator called Pedro Alonso Niño, At the time of Columbus, African navigators were in advance of their white European counterparts. They had (already) established documented trade with China, Mediterranean Europe, India and Atlantic islands. I teach because in school I was told lies and mistruths. I taught myself and my friends-Fam taught me, not the schools. I teach them because I love them. chakabars
