In Exporting American Dreams, Mary Dudziak recounts the untold story of Marshall's journey to Africa. African Americans were enslaved when the U.S. constitution was written. In Kenya, Marshall could become something that had not existed in his own country: a black man helping to found a nation."--BOOK JACKET.
