Abstract

Africa has remained underdeveloped despite being politically free from the clutches of colonialism. The Continent has engaged in so many developmental exploits even with economic and financial supports from international, regional and world bodies most of these efforts have turned unsuccessful in bridging its development gap. This paper interrogated whose burden it should be to ensure success in Africa’s engagements in developmental process. The major inquisition of this paper is: Is Africa's development the burden of the black man or that of the white man? The paper employed the content analysis method of inquiry and took a position that both the Black man as well as the White man share equally in the burden of Africa’s development.

Keywords: africa's development, African nationalists, black man's burden, colonalization, cultural alienation, poverty, self-administration, white man's burden
