Foster 1 Justin Foster Professor Lee, TA-Ann Hist 130-001 2 December 2011 Neo-colonialism was a common way that European nations stayed indirectly in control of African nations after they received their independence. Fanon, Nkrumah, and Wright are all African or African-American writers who wrote about colonialism/post- colonialism in Africa, and neo-colonialism is a subject that all of them focused on. In Fanon’s writing he discusses the limits of African independence and more specifically, how the previous colonizers kept partial control of their former colonies. Nkrumah was an African politician who led Ghana to be the first African country to gain freedom from colonialism. In his writings, he writes about how European nations exploit the resources of African nations that they had previously colonized, to benefit foreign capital and investors. Wright specifically writes about how Britain uses its former colonies in British West Africa to gain precious raw materials such as gold, bauxite, diamonds, etc. (Wright 156).
