Abstract: This article aims to propose a chronological subdivision in the history of African communication. African​ ​communication today is one of the most important axes for implementing development strategies,​ ​sustaining education, health, and schooling programmes, and so on. However, many of these programmes​ ​fail due to a lack of or ineffective communication between international organisations, local elite​ ​and lay people. The reasons for this situation must be found in Africa’s history of communication, which​ ​has undergone radical transformations in its different phases. Using the functionalist analysis drawn up​ ​by Jakobson, this article proposes a new chronological subdivision of Africa’s history of communication,​ ​reflecting on the current contradictions in contemporary communication in Africa.
