Question and answer
What legacy did European colonization of Africa leave behind?
Primarily it was to obtain the raw materials that existed there. [ At the time, much of Africa was an unexplored land with untapped resources. Since Africa was technologically inferior to Europe at the time, and the populations there mainly primitive, establishing colonies was not prohibitively difficult. The Berlin Conference of 1884-1885 essentially "divided up" Africa into various European colonies and spheres of influence, many of which lasted until the middle of the 20th century. ]

European colonization of Africa left behind a legacy of political boundaries that often disregarded existing ethnic and cultural divisions, leading to ongoing conflicts and instability. It also resulted in the extraction of natural resources and exploitation of local populations, leaving lasting economic and social impacts in many African countries.
