Storyboard Text

  • Europian countries started to take over and control ( colonize ) parts of the continent of Africa in the late 1800s. Colonialism is when a country makes itself more powerful by taking over other territories and the people who live there.
  • We colonized Africa !
  • During the years 1884 to 1885, the Berlin Conference started to take place. It is a series of meetings of powerful European countries in Berlin, Germany. Its  purpose is to decide on how to divide and colonize Africa.
  • The south is rich in diamonds and gold!
  • Lets colonize these two areas first then
  • They will fetch a good price
  • The north area of Africa is rich in crude oil
  • There were lots of reasons and causes on why Europeans colonized Africa. For example, a reason was that Europeans wanted natural resources from Africa like crude oil, gold, diamonds, petroleum to help fuel up their Industrial Revolution ( mass production of goods in factories using machines. )
  • You have no right to control us
  • Quick! Unearth as many diamonds as possible!
  • We need to sell these!!
  • Another reason they colonized Africa was that it was least technologically powerful and easier to take advantage of.
  • They are so easy to take control of.
  • Some effects of the European imperialism is that Africans took in some of Europeś culture, like religion ( Christianity ). Many others like languages, government etc.
  • Another major effect was that after independence, many of African tribes fought countless civil wars over the last remaining natural resources that lay.
  • To War!!
