Transcript of Three Cultures Meet

During different times, The West African, Native American and Renaissance had cultures that either shaped civilizations or had been destroyed by cultures. Let dive in.
Europe: Government and War
Europe: Culture
The Renaissance was a cultural movement that spanned roughly the 14th to the 17th century, beginning in Italy and later spreading to the rest of Europe. Its influence affected literature, philosophy, art, politics, science, religion, and others things. The Renaissance period had classical-based learning, the forming of different view on painting, and educational change.
Europe: Religion and lifestyle

The humanistic thinking did accept the older church institutions that were deeply involved in traditions and science ways of thinking. This causes religion to have a large effect.
West African: Culture and Religion
The West African nations have undergo a large impact from Muslims that came from North Africa. Early years had trading arrangement but over time they settled in the West African, too. This brought more religion and cultures that affected these countries. In fact the farther north you go in West Africa the larger the Muslim presence will be, in some cases they will represent nearly half the population. :p
In Conclusion, the Renaissance changed the influence of art, technology, astronomy, and other things. West Africa civilizations that prosper in ancient West Africa were all based on trade, so successful West African leaders tended to be peace makers rather than warriors. And the Native American contained many content of culture and tools.
