This podcast episode provides an overview of recent history in Africa. Due to the late independence of many countries in the early to mid 1900s, many have experienced extreme birth pains as they have sought their own identity. The Rwandan genocide was a tragic result of many history factors, including the introduction of new ideas of race and superiority by some European countries.
