Colonialism in Africa: Yesterday, today and tomorrow | DW News Africa

As former colonial nations face a moment of reckoning over the actions of their forebears, DW News Africa looks at how colonialism has shaped the continent’s past, how it’s impacting the present – and asks what needs to change so that the future looks different. We meet a man in Cameroon who’s passionately tearing down statues of colonizers; get an update on the efforts by the Talai and Kipsigis people in Kenya to win reparations from the British government for land that was taken from them in colonial times. And we talk to a psychologist about decolonizing the African mind.
