    For a good historical background, I suggest enrolling in a class at your local community college (preferably taught be an African professor). For modern news check out this website: http://www.afrol.com even http://www.BBC.com has decent news. Brother anAfrican has some decents links at the top of this forum as well.

    The things on the Discovery Channel and National Geographic are just plain embarrassing, I think that's their whole purpose when they show us specials on Africa.

    True, if all anyone watched was the Discovery Channel they'd never know there are modern cities in African countries.

    White would combat that answer with saying "the only successful African cities are structured by whites." It's just a no when situation when you have to view it through their point of view.
