African Independence Movements
South of the Sahara things were a bit more difficult, as the land had nothing to work with and the people weren't educated enough to do the things needed to suddenly keep up with a society standing on its own feet.
Because of the way the colonies were organized, there were a lot of fights within the states. It doesn't help that the Europeans sucked and organized things to where people who were already there had to live together despite the fact that they kinda hated each other.
The nations gained their freedom in different ways from all out war to more peaceful talks. Nice.
Lots of the nations dealt with violence within themselves even if things were generally alright hoooooo boi..........
Much of Africa is actually pretty rich in crops and precious metals so it's pretty great. B)
Rwanda was one of the colonies with difficulties such as fights between social groups in the nation-- in this case, the killing of the Hutu people by the Tutsi people. So many people died. This is a bad thing.
SOUTH AFRICA'S SITUATION SUCKED IT WAS AWFUL. There was a major imbalance between white and black people BY LAW and this led to the deaths of many due to poor living conditions leading to protests. At first, the people tried to gain their rights in a peaceful way, but they soon turned to violence. This lasted for decades until the white people, under pressure from the entire world and the people in the nation, finally decided... hey... maybe we SHOULDN'T suck so bad.
