Not sure what this topic means?

Although i'm finished my essay i'm still unsure of this topic:
The topic is that I have to research the colonical history of the Belgian Congo, and discuss Heart of Darkness' portrayal of and commentary on it.
Does this mean I have to discuss Heart of Darkness' portrayal and commentary of the Congo or am I discussing the portrayal and commentary of Colonialization in that area?
Discuss how accurately the Belgian Congo described by Conrad compares to the Historical record of the Belgian Congo.
Caution: There are a lot of subjective interpretation here, both in the novel, and in historical records. But try to filter that out, and compare the two. Did Conrad describe accurately the Congo of that time? If he didn't, what were the differences?
