Negroland
Negroland or Nigritia, was a term invented and used by Europeans in colonial times, for an inland region in West African an area described as populated with "Negro people." The term "Nigritia" was used in 1823 to describe the region by Mercator's Chart. This area comprised at least the western part of the region called Sudan (not to be confused with the modern country). The term is probably a direct translation of the Arabic term Bilad Al Sudan meaning "Land of the blacks", corresponding to about the same area. Some of the greatest states of those considered part of Negroland was the Bornu Empire and the Sokoto Caliphate.
