Endurance hunting. I'd imagine some very crude weapons. Things like spears. I don't think Africa ever produced a sword or bow. Slings maybe?
Africa must be a hard place to live as the people never really became very innovative except in the nile region. I think a society needs to be able to settle in one place and have free time to produce the kind of innovations we saw in the rest of the world.
Look at native Americans. They were nomadic people and they werent that much more advanced than African tribes.

She's not native American. Also, you don't need to mention her everytime someone mentions Indians. We know she's Indian. She doesn't mention all of us whenever someone brings up white Americans. It's a weird thing to do, and possibly hostile and definitely a little racist.

Endurance hunting is not an invention. It is pretty badass, though. Do it once to show off, it's badass. Do it as the main way of catching animals in 2012 you're a fucking spastic moron.

Peanut pastes were used for thousands of years by the Aztecs, but the earliest modern form of "peanut butter" was created by Marcellus Gilmore Edson, a white Canadian. Red/green traffic lights were first used by a white Mormon, Lester Wire.

Civilization = innovation?
Lol! In fact, I would say it's quite the opposite. In hunter-gatherer tribes everyone must be innovative and inventive to survive. Not so in civilization. In civilization only a tiny fraction of the population is inventive. The rest—just drones.
PS — Both Africans and Native Americans had bows and arrows, duh! Africans also had iron and steel technologies, so, yes, they had swords as well, duuuuh!!
OK, yeah, bro, I was "wrong" about peanut butter. George W. Carver was not the first or only one to "invent" it. However, he came up with loads of other more significant innovations and inventions that allowed people to survive and live better lives. Look him up, bud. You may learn something as I just did.
Now about the traffic signal... Garreth Morgan may not have invented "the" traffic signal, but he did invent and patent one. Apparently, that exact type was not used, but in cartoons made early in the last century you can see very similar signals in use. However, as Carver did, G. Morgan invented many other even more significant devices and methods, including a protective fume hood for firefighters that ended up saving several lives of miners trapped after an accident.
The topic point is that "Africans invented nothing", and I had already proved that they did, even if others had invented the same things independently, so you already had been proved wrong. Now however you have proof that they also invented unique systems, so now you can kindly shut your mouth and learn something for a change:
