That's a big and expansive question with no single answer.
The dominant ethos globally is one that wants to only
cultivate Africans and African descendents as consumers
of technology, and the disastrous legacies of Apartheid,
Slavery, Jim Crow, and Colonialism help feed that monster.
Even much of the supposed well-meaning dialogue around the
digital divides, between North and South (North America and
the African continent, for example), and the haves and
have-nots (poor Blacks and *still* wealthy whites in South
Africa, for example), is primarily based on the assumption
of consumerism and consumption, and not on technology
production or any other form of self-determination.
How continental and diasporic Africans begin to break out
of this Capitalist and White Supremacist box is the most
important question facing us in this century.
