Semester Offered: First Semester

This course examines pre-colonial African political and social systems and how these were weakened by the imposition of colonialism. It also considers the rise of leaders such as Nkrumah, Kenyatta and Nyerere, the liberation struggles and the wave of independence that swept through Africa in the 1960s. While acknowledging Africa’s development challenges, this course also highlights recent developments such as relative political stability, democratic deepening and the emergence of the African Union as constituting grounds for hope.
