From Africa to the Western Hemisphere, the slave trade not only displaced millions of Africans to a life of exploitation, but also a painful death. Nobody knew the total number of people who died during slavery in Africa. The Atlantic slave trade Many died a slowly painful death during transportation and imprisonment, or in horrendous conditions during the Middle Passage. The voyage from Africa to the Americas was horrifying and painful for the slaves so many slaves considered suicide as an option.
Early America consisted of rebellion when the triangular trade brought thousands of enslaved Africans into the U.S. not thinking of the thousands of lives they were destroying. If anything, the slaves and children of slaves were being induced such a degrading mentality that could have lasted up till today, but humans tend to disobeying when we
“The revolution awakened black consciousness and black pride throughout the Atlantic world, but it caused great fear among whites and led many to tighten the grips they help on their slaves.” The increase in violence towards the slaves came from the threat Americans saw of their slaves hearing of the Haitian revolt.

Domiciled armed and non-armed conflicts are a vital problem in several countries that are located in the area at the moment. I chose to emphasise this fact because it affects many innocent people while the division of Africa during the Scramble of Africa is one of the causes to this. I also mentioned how the exploitation of Africa’s natural resources and means of production were exploited and how this affected the population back then, but also the present population and what it did to countries’ present economies. This was done to emphasise the fact that Imperialism did affect the general situation in the country and why this was

But after these colonies gained independence even more problems began to emerge. Both these regions experienced genocides as they were neglected by foreign governments, exacerbated with the little support nations gave, and in the end contributing to these mass murders.
From the sixteenth century, Europeans were satisfied with establishing colonies and carrying out trading and missionary activity in foreign continents. However, in the late nineteenth century, countries were determined to take control over large territories in order to expand their empires, a surge known as the new imperialism. Creating colonies acted as a symbol of prestige and dominance over rival nations. The Europeans also hoped to discover riches and valuable natural resources to open regions to commerce. Additionally, they felt it was their duty to civilize the native people by governing them and converting them to Christianity (Spielvogel and McTighe 226).
During the late 1800s and early 1900s, many people worldwide were affected by imperialism. How imperialism was perceived differed from which side they were on. A positive perspective of Imperialism was held by the Imperialist powers and a necessity for these people. They believed it was a way of helping them to better their civilization.
European colonialism in Africa was a violent process of exploitation and dominance in the political, social, and cultural sphere of native society. Pop culture music and dance are dynamic social products that provide insight into the shifting sociocultural formations of a society. Through this analysis of pop culture I will discuss the classist social hierarchies established by colonialism and defined power by proximity to whiteness. I will explore native actors’ response to colonial social hierarchies in their alliances or resistance to colonialism and their influence on music and dance styles. Finally, we will evaluate ways in which music and dance are forms of resistance that challenge the status quo in colonial societies.
Europe had an upper hand in its military strength and economic power compared to the African continent due to its technical superiority and efficient organization of labor. Europe was the first part of the world to shift from feudalism to capitalism. When Europeans arrived at the Americas, they recognized the immense potential in extracting gold, silver and tropical produce from the land. However, without adequate labor supplies, this possibility could not have been a reality. The Europeans had to substitute for the dwindling Native American population which failed to survive the diseases that the Europeans brought.
