It's just out of context if left to me when discussing the topic that civilization of Africa was brought by the Europeans. True this Europeans brought a more advanced civilization,but didn't meet Africa at her primitive state. Every historian because of the reason best known to them writes the history of Africa in favor of the Europeans.

Before the coming of the Europeans, Africa already has it's own civilization and there are many evidence of that.

To me, the Europeans claiming of bringing civilization to Africa I think is because of their way of life which they brought down to Africa of which some were imposed on the masses. They brought their values, culture and others to Africa of which many were very good and important while many are not.

I said earlier that there are facts backing Africa of being a civilised continent even before the coming of the Europeans. This are all evidences that are right before our nose. We are seeing it but don't want to believe it because of what we've been taught in school. There are so many facts to Africa's civilization before the coming of the Europeans which I believe you can find with the help of the search engine (Google, Wikipedia....) but here is a few I'm going to mention.

* The pyramid of Egypt.

Egypt was believed to be where civilization began before spreading out to the world. But that's not my point here but the pyramid is. The pyramid has been there since before the coming of the Europeans and this pyramid is said to be of a great architectural intellect. So tell me how can such be if Africa was still primitive before the coming of the Europeans.

* The Benin kingdom in Nigeria.

This kingdom is one of the oldest kingdoms in the world. Unknown to many, this kingdom has a wall way greater than the great Wall of China but because it has been destroyed when the Europeans invaded the kingdom so no tales was said of it. This kingdom when first visited by the Europeans before they came back to invade it, said, the building plan of the kingdom was like that being used in London and where surprised how people who didn't attend school could do something they can do only after going through training in school. If Africa was primitive, this wouldn't be.

* Art works of Africa

* Visitation of king Solomon by Queen Sheba.

There are so more facts that can be stated ( of which you can state yours in the comments section below) that shows that Africa was already in her own way of civilization before the coming of the Europeans.

I'm not in any way saying the Europeans didn't bring civilization to Africa. They did, but they met people who are already civilised in their own way.
