Africa

  • Heart of Darkness (extract) is a powerful indictment of the evils of imperialism. It reflects the savage repressions carried out in the Congo by the Belgians in one of the largest acts of genocide committed up to that time. Conrad's narrator encounters at the end of the story a man named Kurtz, dying, insane, and guilty of unspeakable atrocities.     §
  • Petition of the Chiefs of Brass Regarding Trade on the Niger, 1877 Native views from the colonial period are very rare. This gives a rare insight.  §
  • The Black Man's Burden Edward Morel, the British anti slavery campaigner in the Belgian Congo, drew attention to the abuses of imperialism in 1903. The Congo was perhaps the most famously exploitative of the European colonies.
  • Kenya: Imperialism and decolonisation detailed casahistoria netguide article (19 pages) based on a variety of web sources. For more casahistoria netguide revision go to IB/Alevel/K12 revision in the young casahistoria section.
  • Daily Life in Sierra Leone: The Sherbro in 1936-37 Exhibit of photographs with full contextual descriptions taken by Henry Usher Hall in 1936-37 during an ethnographic research trip to Sierra Leone. The photographic images presented here have been selected from a larger collection of photographs and records in the University of Pennsylvania Museum Archives and give a good insight into life in an African colony during British rule. The Archives include a broad selection of papers devoted to ethnographic and linguistic research in Africa, as well as photographs, films, maps, drawings, and tape recordings.
  • Colonial Kenya Missionary Laura Collins took these photos in the early 20th century. She worked as a missionary in Kenya for 45 years, until 1952.
  • Zuza BBC audio report (about 10mins) piecing together the life of an African woman brought to Britain in 1929 in Newcastle in 1929 an exhibition was designed to show the world what the region had to offer and  entertainment for the local population. In the amusement area an African village was set up, peopled with men and women brought over from Algeria. A 28-year-old woman, Zuza and her husband and baby son were among them.  Zuza died soon after her arrival and was buried in an unmarked grave in Jesmond. Lesley Gibson talks to researcher Lloyd Gibson about the forgotten history of the young woman and talks to those who still remember the African village.

As is clear here it was conditions in the Belgian Congo (and Conrad's Heart of Darkness online version) that acted as the catalyst for the 19th and early 20th century anti-colonialists.
