Colonialism in Africa: A Critical Look!
Using text, activities, cartoons, and prose, the publication encourages junior and senior secondary students to examine the history of colonialism in Africa and the importance of colonialism in Africa today. Chapter 1 provides an overview of 500 years of colonialism. Chapter 2 describes pre-colonial Africa from the year 1000 to 1442. The focus of chapters 3 and 4 includes the years from 1442 to 1833 when Africa became poor while Europe prospered. Chapter 5 describes colonialism from 1833-1884, and chapter 6 explains the dividing of Africa in 1884. Chapter 8 presents the patterns of colonialism from 1884-1967. Lingering colonialism in chapter 9 looks at the difficulties of African countries after 1960. Three case studies examine neocolonialism, the apartheid system in South Africa, and colonialism in Canada. Twenty activities in chapter 13 coincide with the chapter texts. A list of 11 audio-visual and print resources provides further information. (Author/CK)
