African Americans have experienced competing impulses toward Africa—ranging from ambivalence and disregard to solidarity and return—and have waged vigorous debates about them. This chapter discusses African American engagement with Africa during the late nineteenth and early twentieth centuries, and how established patterns of thought and behavior carried over into the mid-twentieth century.

Keywords:   African Americans, Africa, nineteenth century, twentieth century
