Why are most Africans so poor when Africa is so rich?

I know that this question can only spark off a heated debate. But, let’s avoid polemics and try to build a constructive conversation.
Are Africans poor? What is poverty? Who determines any level of poverty?
Whatever is your definition of poverty, I hope we can agree that Africans are poor.
Why?
Colonization? The slave trade? Witchcraft? USA? Western Imperialism? Wars? Why???
