    I really liked topic sentence #2 because you told a story with your wording. When I read this sentence (Portugal was mostly interested in increasing their fortunes threw slave trading which played a major role in weakening the Kongo Kingdom) makes me sad to think of the slave trade, but that makes it a good sentence because you express emotion. I wish that I could see the video but it is ok! Another two minor things are
    1. In the first topic sentence “Kongo Kingdom” should be capitalized, like in topic sentence #3
    2. I wonder why there is an ‘n’ in front of the works cited.
    I really liked this blog, thank you for uploading.

    I enjoyed topic sentence#1 and #2 because they spoke of how some people were welcomed and the history of this. I did not enjoy how the video was unavailable. that could have provided much more information towards this topic. when I read these they really tell a story even though they are not the most descriptive statements they were still interesting with their information. In my opinion it was overall good but with your wording and writing style well those could be improved.
