Wouldn't Africa's sub continent have flourished, if Europeans and North African Arabs left Blacks to their own device and survival?
into an advance society if Tribal Black Africa had no contact what so ever.

If Europeans had not sailed beyond the Sahara desert there may not have been a Trans-Atlantic Trade directly with Sub Saharan Villages or Kingdoms, the Arabs would be a monopolized middle men with the product castrated. If Europeans & Arabs left the Sub-Saharan Sub Continent alone to their own device & survival, Sub Saharan population may not have grown to 1 billion & remained under 30 million due to endless tribal warfare, tropical African disease, sacrificial voodoo (witchcraft) cults/religions, & exhausted resources. Human sacrifices would be more frequent due to the slave trade with Arabs & Europeans would not exist Sub-Sahara Tribal Africa as they brutally compete for territory controlling the population with warfare & human sacrifices along with tropical African deseases such as Small Pox, Malaria, Yellow Fever, HIV, Ebola... Development into an Advance Society may not happen, just as it didn't with uncontacted tribes of the Amazons & N. Sentinel Island. Without trade outside Sub Sahara Africa & a written language to record things, it wouldn't have happened, even if Sub Sahara had Vibranium. Trade & Commerce is what enriches & advances any Nations. Going the communist route of shutting down the economy depresses society into dependency inactivity, unproductivity, irresponsibility, & corruption.

I think they would have improved it may been at slower pace, the difference is they were more tribal and it would have taken longer for them to work together.

Africa did flourish thousands of years before The West was even a thing. There may even be Egypt like cities under the Sahara - and we think we have climate change issues!

Depends on how "flourish" is defined. Technology? The arts? Social justice? Individual happiness? Military might? Economic might?
