  • Europeans sailed to Africa in search of new land to conquer and to set up markets for trading.
  • Europeans thought that Africans were uncivilized. Europeans wanted the Africans to adopt their religion and language. 
  • They are so uncivilized!
  • I know, but I think we can help them.
  • Europeans held a meeting to divide Africa into colonies.
  • The Berlin Conference divided Africa into colonies.
  • The Africans were not happy with the Europeans. The Europeans walked into Africa acting like they owned it and the Africans had no say.
  • They treat us like children!
  • We have no say in any of this! This is not fair!
  • When Africans tried to stand up for themselves against the Europeans they would be killed, they were all terrified. African children were confused to what customs they should follow because they were taught different things at school and at home. 
  • Not only did we lose our land, we also lost many people because of them!
  • We lost our traditional customs and our children are having identity issues as well!
