Please answer the following question. Your answer should be thorough and demonstrate your understanding of the material.
As stated in your text, Africa’s experience with colonial rule was, in some way, fairly brief. . . As a result, it is often argued that it is important not to “privilege” (credit) colonialism as having too much of an impact on African history. So, do you buy that argument? Or do you take the other side, that colonialism emerged in the midst of global (Western) powers jocking for supremacy, and therefore was so coimplete (economically, socially, politically) and the impact/damage thus destroyed the framwork of Africanism that had existed across millenia?
Make sure you support your answer with evidence from the readings.
