Africa is the world's second-largest and second most-populous continent, after Asia. With more than 900 million people (as of 2005), it accounts for about 14% of the world's human population. Africa, particularly central eastern Africa is the birthplace of the human race.

Independence

By 1914, Africa had only two independent nations, Liberia, a nation founded in West Africa by free black Americans earlier in the nineteenth century, and the ancient kingdom of Ethiopia in East Africa.
