This chapter examines the intersection of African and European cultures and discusses the cultural changes that have taken place in Africa as a result of colonialism. Culture is an important and integral part of African life and history. For Africans, culture embodies their philosophy, worldview, behavior patterns, arts and institutions. Nevertheless, “Africa is a continent of great changes, instigated mainly by Africans but also through infl uences from other continents. The rise of youth culture, the penetration of global media, and the challenges of generational stability are some of the components of change.”1
