Maybe a few specific countries like Egypt, but not the continent itself.

Anything can happen. I suspect any rise of Africa will be on a relative basis compare to other continents/nation-states, not an absolute basis.

Step one, get their act together politically in order to unleash the human capital on the continent.

No. They'll just continue to be a major world burden.

Beyond South Africa, no. Egypt used to be a power but it died when the Ottomans took over. Though I think the new nation in the Horn of Africa may become a power if successful.

I read a paper once talking about the plethora of natural resources in africa... I'll see if I can find it, but for now I'll just paraphrase that essentially the outline involved a possible future where Africa becomes one of the only stable exporters of natural resources such as gold and silver, and gains an economic footing to build and sustain more stable nations. I'd like to think that if they can't do it in 100 years, it'll never happen.

Western Africa is a hotbed for rare earth minerals. I think it'll be a new Middle East type war zone between world powers excluding Africa before Africa can become stable, even in 100 years.

Pretty much the sentiment I was trying to express with the last sentence

But I agree
