It has been some 40 years since most of Africa achieved its independence. While hopes were high at independence time, many African states have experienced economic decline and political instability. The presenter, who has lived, taught, done research and traveled in much of Africa since the early 1970s, explores the reasons for these problems, what the African states are doing to improve their prospects and what the United States can do to help.
