Africa Globally Connected: For millennia, Africa has interacted with the outside world.

This interaction has facilitated many African contributions and exports to the world, such as agricultural products, minerals and other material goods, as well as knowledge and cultural expressions. This interaction has also allowed African societies to benefit from imports from the outside world, such as information and other technologies. Special emphasis will be given to Africa's contributions to and trade with North America.
