Transcript of Chapter 19 How Africa Became Black

Jared Diamond's book, titled "Guns, Germs, and Steel" tries to answer why history has developed in the way that it has. This definitely ties into Chapter 19 - in the way it explains why the ancient people of Africa were so diverse and wide spread. An example of this are the Bantu people, and their farming and animal domestication techniques. This advancement in farming and animal domestication allowed them to spread across a large part of Africa, and claim large areas of land from other groups, such as the Khoisan and Pygmies of Africa.
Blacks occupy South Sahara and sub-Sahara Africa, and they speak mostly non Bantu and Bantu versions of the Niger-Congo languages
