Decolonization in Africa

Based on your understanding of the reading and the videos, take bulleted notes on the following:

  • Why the French granted independence to most of its African colonies, but was willing to resort to violence to maintain a hold on Algeria.
  • Compare attitudes of Algerian independence supporters to independence seekers in other regions (e.g. India, Vietnam, etc.)
  • The role of black nationalism in Ghana's independence movement.
  • How the apartheid system in South Africa affected its independence process.
