This chapter discusses the debates over the efficacy of colonization; the various motives behind the colonization movement; and the consideration of Haiti as a potential destination for African Americans. In early 1825, the brig Hunter approached the coast of West Africa with the first of thousands of black North Carolinians who would migrate to a colony named Liberia, meaning “a settlement of persons made free.”
