What was the process in which former African colonies gained their independence?
African Independence differed by country and by colonial power. Some movements were peaceful. In other countries, independence was only gained violently. However, in all cases there was a greater sense of the African people rising to the challenge, to lead themselves and to decide what to do for themselves. It all began when the young Africans began to travel out for further studies. They began to understand better a new way of life, new theories, and principles. They began to retrospect on who they are and what is happening on the continent. The desire for freedom and happiness made them go further with this calling. These students began to form unions and organizations. They began to make the Marcus Garvey's dream of the emancipation of the black people to come to fruition. These men and women toiled to make this dream a reality. The Africans back home as well began to resist some oppressive policies and economic deprivations they face during the colonial era. When the wind of change began to blow across the world, these colonial masters came under intense pressure to let go of these countries and to give them freedom, to do their things and to become sovereign.

What would the United States look like now if Martin Luther King, Jr. had not been assassinated?
In many ways Martin Luther King, Jr.'s assassination turned him into a martyr. His death both expedited the Civil Rights movement and also MLK's anti-war efforts to swifter conclusions. Both of King efforts became more prominent to Americans. However, I do not think his assassination made any major changes to history. The Civil Rights Act and the end of the Vietnam war would simply have happened sooner.

Was the British Empire as strong as it was made out to be?
Human history is the journey of influential civilizations through history. The long list of empires includes the Persians, the Roman Empire/Byzantine, the Chinese Han Dynasty, and the Mongols and the Spanish. Each civilizations had huge affects on their vast regional spheres of influence over prolonged periods of time. However, The British Empire/Commonwealth was the only Hyperpower in world history - starting in the early 16th century with North America and the Caribbean (West Indies. Reaching its zenith between 1815 & 1922 “Imperial century” & started to collapse in the aftermath of ww2, relinquishing control of Hong Kong in 1997, being viewed as the end of empire. Almost 1/3 of the countries in existence today were formed or founded by the British. So yes. The British Empire is as strong as it was made out to be.
