Africa‘s history was hijacked and refurbished by the European colonialists and missionaries. They claim that there was no African history before the Europeans arrival in the shores of the continent. It is therefore imperative for Africa to go back and learn about her history, reconstruct her history before the invasion and colonization. The paper thus discusses the origin, sources and effect of the presence of the European in African education and history. The devastating effects of the slave trade era on the thought process of Africans around colonialism. It further stressed the point that slavery and colonization as being a lingering problem for Africa, with the emergence of western education learning process of Africa history, rather than African education. It also unearths the fundamental impact of African educational system and explores decolonization as the key process to re-discover Africa for development.
