So for example, we have lots of great books in our catalog about Africa. One directly on the subject of independence would be Africa since independence: a comparative history. Am excellent introduction to the region would be Africa: a biography of the continent.
For articles try a general purpose database like Academic Search. A particularly rich source for foreign newpapers would be LexisNexis. We have some excellent encyclopedias too, like the online New Encyclopedia of Africa. Don't forget our library research guides either, like the one to African and African American Studies.
