This introductory chapter sets out the book's purpose, which is to analyze over the course of a quarter century and a series of specific events, major shifts in the salience and significance of contemporary Africa in African American intellectual and political life. By examining more fully black America's engagement with African freedom struggles and independence, we reshape and internationalize our understanding of the freedom struggle in America while gaining insight into the development of racial identity and political consciousness during these critical years of twentieth-century freedom movements.

Keywords:   African Americans, Africa, independence, freedom movements, racial identity, political consciousness
