After reading this, you'll understand how Europe underdeveloped Africa. Before Europeans destroyed African cities and razed them to the ground in the 14th and 15th centuries, Africa had wealthy and prosperous cities that had nothing to envy from their European counterparts. The richest man ever in the history of humanity is Mansa Musa, emperor of the 14th century Mali Empire which covered modern day Mali, Senegal, Gambia, and Guinea. His wealth was estimated at $400 billion. The world's first encyclopedia was created in Mali in the 14th century, eons before the Europeans got the idea 4 centuries later.

100 Amazing African Cities That Were Completely Destroyed By Europeans

We only have a few drawings and descriptions by travelers who visited the places before their destruction. In some places, ruins are still visible. Many cities were abandoned when Europeans brought exotic diseases (smallpox and influenza) which started spreading and killing people. Most of those cities lie hidden. In fact the biggest part of Africa history is still under the ground.Please note – the research supporting this post is mostly derived from Robin Walker, a distinguished panafricanist
