Unlike the primarily east-to-west conquest of the Americas, European incursions into sub-Saharan Africa proceeded south-to-north-an approach, climatically speaking, that did not favor the invaders. Cattle and crops failed to thrive, and indigenous diseases decimated the newcomers, yet still that vast region was subdued. How? This program tells a story of colonization and exploitation that shows how Europeans imposed their civilization on the tropics, to the lasting detriment of Africans. Also, the video considers the role the forces of technology and environment play in the world today.
