Unit 2: Peopling the Continent

In this unit, you will look specifically at human interactions with the African environment over a very long period of time. You will study the impact of climatic change upon hunter-gatherers and agricultural communities. You will also consider how agricultural innovation, metalworking, and commerce transformed the nature of early African civilizations. Finally, you will see how these technologies spread around the African continent, helping Africans respond to challenges and take advantage of opportunities.

Unit 4: Ancient and Classical Africa—Sub-Saharan

The same drying of the Sahara that concentrated Africans into the Nile River valley also led to the emergence of sophisticated societies in sub-Saharan Africa. The first highly structured societies probably developed in the Sahelian region of West Africa, but over time, the spread of technologies, the growth of populations, and the development of trade routes stimulated similar growth elsewhere. Nevertheless, many African societies chose not to go the route of centralized “states” in this period, preferring other methods of organization. In this unit, we will look at these societies in all of their diversity, beginning with a thematic exploration of the origins of complex states and societies and moving on to an examination of societies in the Sahel, the forests of West Africa, and then other regions of Africa in the period before circa 1500 CE.

Unit 5: Africa and The World Systems

Africa is a vast continent, and many of its regions are located at some distance from the main trading axes of the world. Nevertheless, African societies have been deeply integrated into global trends and transnational systems for long periods of time. Intercontinental exchange in the Mediterranean dates back thousands of years, and the Red Sea and Indian Ocean zone have for a long time been sites of trade and contact. The Atlantic zone (discussed in the next unit) was the last frontier breached, about 500 years ago. In this unit, we will look at the relationships between Africans and others. Part of this unit focuses on religion, as Africa has historically served as a major site of Christian, Jewish, and Muslim religious heritage and religious practice. We will also look at commerce and the movement of ideas.

Unit 6: Africans and The Atlantic World

After 1450, much of Africa was brought into the Atlantic trade system, increasingly through involvement in the slave trade. Through the institution of slavery, African lifestyles and cultural practices were transferred to the New World, where they developed as cultures of survival, resistance, and production in plantation societies and elsewhere. The first African slaves brought directly to Portugal arrived in 1441. As European relations with African rulers expanded, the export of slaves grew in volume. With the development of plantation agriculture in the Atlantic islands, and then the Americas, slaves became the primary component of the coercive labor system. By 1600, the slave trade was the most lucrative element of European trade with Africa.This unit, you will study the complex and brutal nature of the Atlantic slave trade.

Unit 7: The Industrial Revolution and Africans

In this unit, we will explore the industrial revolution and its impact in Africa, and examine the ways that Africans participated in it. We will also look at two specific situations—the production of oilseeds (palm kernels and peanuts) in West Africa and the settlement of southern Africa—that serve as particularly advanced examples of this process. Finally, we will explore the situation in Africa on the eve of colonialism.
