AFRICA

1960 TROUGH THE 1980'S, A TIMEFRAME DURING WHICH AFRICA GAINED IT'S INDEPENDENCE FROM EUROPE. THE AFRICAN SEPERATION FROM EUROPE WAS SPURRED ON, BY SOLDIERS WHO HAD FOUGHT IN BOTH WORLD WARS. LEARNING OF INDIA'S STRUGGLE FOR INDEPENDENCE, NORTHERN AFRICAN NATIONS FELT EMPOWERED TO DO THE SAME.

IN SUB-SAHARAN AFRICA, THINGS WERE MUCH MORE DIFFICULT. WITH LITTLE UNITY AMONG THE NATIONS AN FEW SKILLED WORKERS, IT WAS A STRUGGLE TO BECOME SELF-SUFFICIENT AND PROSPEROUS.
