Africa is the second largest continent behind Asia and covers 6% of the globe's surface or 20% of the globe's land surface.
By some accounts, the number of native languages on the continent of Africa number anywhere from between 1500 and 2000. It is home to the highest linguistic diversity on the planet.
Western mainstream information, however, still is Eurocentric and negative. One must know how to search and spend time in just finding an accurate, well-rounded, basic analysis of African countries.
Fifty-four sovereign and fully recognized countries make up the African continent - 6 of which are island nations.
The Ethiopian Highlands comprise nearly 45% of the total land area and supports over 85% of the country's 64 million people. It is Africa's largest continuous plateau.
