In the 400 years after Columbusís voyage to the New World, some 15 million Africans were carried to the Americas in chains. But beginning in the 18th century, some African Americans found their way back to their ancestral continent. Here, Campbell examines two centuries of African American journeys to Africa, from the arrival of the first colonists in Sierra Leone and Liberia to the heritage tourism of our own time. Subjects include many of the central figures in American intellectual, political, and artistic life -- Martin Delany, Langston Hughes, W.E.B. Du Bois, Richard Wright, Malcolm X, and Maya Angelou. The journeys recounted here illuminate African Americansí ever evolving relationship with Africa and, their complex relationship to the U.S. Illustrations.
