This chapter examines African Americans' responses to the violence in Kenya. The Kenya Land and Freedom Movement, popularly known as Mau Mau, launched a war to overthrow white supremacy and to reclaim the land. As black Americans grappled with different approaches to gaining rights and freedom, most did not accept, let alone embrace, violence. Legal avenues, and then nonviolent protest, were the preferred ways to effect change in America.

Keywords:   African Americans, Africa, war, insurgency, nonviolent protest
