Colonialism and the Republic of Cameroon
Historical context: Chocolat was shot in Cameroon in the 1980s and the flashback is set in the late 1950s. Europeans (Germany) first colonized Cameroon in 1884, with France and Britain taking control as a spoil of war after World War I. The people of Cameroon began to advocate for independence in the 1950s, which was finalized by France in 1960 and Britain in 1961.
