Abstract:

Clegg discusses the role of Africa in the African American imagination and the nature of African Americans' diasporic consciousness. The author surveys the history of Africa in African American thought from the 18th century, highlighting the perspectives of slaves such as Phillis Wheatley, who were often born in Africa, and Paul Cuffe's role in the origins of movements to return to the continent. The development of the Liberian colonization movement in the 19th century and black nationalism to the time of Marcus Garvey is discussed. Clegg overviews African American perspectives on Africa during the colonial era from the Harlem Renaissance, noting that diasporic political engagement with Africa tended to crest during times of tension and conflict between Africans and their colonial rulers, such as Belgian colonial abuses in the Congo and the Italian invasion of Ethiopia. African American relationships with contemporary Africa are explored, such as the search for undocumented ancestors and contemporary travel narratives. Following the essay, a bibliography of recommended reading, a chronology of events from 1619 to 2006, and a glossary are presented.
