This chapter summarizes the preceding discussions and presents some final thoughts. African Americans had turned to contemporary Africa and included it in their lives for a number of positive reasons: for the inspiration it provided for the struggle in America; for a sense of solidarity; and for the pride and confidence that came from seeing black men and women win their freedom and run their own countries. A transforming Africa had enabled black Americans to reject old negative images of Africa, rethink ideas about redeeming and uplifting Africa, and embrace contemporary Africa.
