The Imperialism Of Africa


Imperialism in Africa began during the 1870- 1900's when the Belgian King sent people to establish trade with Belgian Congo. This went on for many years until ninety percent of Africa was taken over by foreigners.


The Europeans started to imperialize the coasts of Africa due to the waterways, and then started to make their way inwards until they conquered almost all of Africa.
