Black Africa(redirected from Black Africa (football club))
Also found in: Dictionary, Thesaurus.
a term used in scholarly works, political writings, and literature to denote African countries populated by negroid races. The French term Afrique noire first appeared in the second half of the 19th century, when France’s colonial empire was taking shape in West and Equatorial Africa. The German term Schwarzafrika has not gained wide use. In English, the term “Negro Africa” has largely been replaced by “Black Africa,” “Subsanaran Africa,” and “Africa south of the Sahara,” the last of which is also coming into use in French. The last term is accepted in Soviet writings.
