Important is a relative term, it means different things to different people. For me, one of the most important events in human history was the development of writing and written language. It "happened" in many places in the world at various times. It was the basic tool that enabled people to spread knowledge and pass knowledge down through history.

Too many to list, because every country in the world could make its own list of what was 'significant' for them. Some events that had a worldwide impact were in the last 100 years: the First and Second World War, the Great Depression in the 1930s, the rise and fall of Communism in Russia and Europe, decolonization in Africa and Asia, the Cold War and the rise of the US as a world power, and the rise of China as an economic power.

Were africans denied 2000 years of history?

No, it is not possible to deny anyone of history. This question needs improvement, as it does not specify the time over which history is said to have been lost. Even without knowing what it is that this question is referring to, it is not possible to deny someone of history. The events that occurred is the history of that person or that people. It might not have been the ideal course of events for that person or that people, but it is what happened regardless.
