Storyboard Text

  • The French claimed a lot of land, expanding all over Western Africa. France competed with Samori Toure, in charge of a new empire. France beat Samori and claimed most of Western Africa.
  • Europeans protected the sea routes of Northeastern Africa. The Suez Canal was one of the most important things to Britain in Africa. The canal caused Egypt to pay great debt to Britain, which helped Britain.
  • Southern Africa held many precious minerals that attracted Europeans. Diamonds could be found down near the Orange River. The area would be crowded with a plethora of dark and light skinned people, in search of riches. Then, when gold was found, the area became crowded as well.
  • Trade was very important in Western Africa. The French have many active traders around the area, since it's claimed mostly by the French. Also, the British gained control over the Gold Coast after fighting four battles.
  • Egypt was financially struggling. They had lots of debt to pay Britain and the cotton industry in Egypt was becoming corrupt after the Civil War. Egypt had to reluctantly accept all offers of the French and British to take control of it's finances.
  • The Africans wanted to get away from the British, so the South African War broke out. Blood was splattered through the war until finally, losing hope, African surrendered. In result, the Britain government joined African and British colonies, and racial inequality was build upon it.
