The goal of this book is to restore the severed links among Africans in Africa and their descendants in the Americas, and to prove the presence and influence of a particular ethnicity in the Americas. Specifically, it challenges the widely held belief among historians that African ethnicities had little demographic and cultural influence on the Americas. Because they deny the roots of peoples in Africa and render them invisible, the book attempts to make the invisible Africans visible. In order to understand the roots of Africans in the Americas, patterns of their introduction over time and place are explored. This conclusion highlights the impact of the specific African regions and ethnicities in the formation of new cultures developing throughout the Americas.
