Wegman maintains that spreading Christianity and overseeing the conversion of Africans played a significant role in motivating black Americans like Lott Cary to emigrate to Africa. This chapter focuses on African American theologists and leaders who went to Liberia with missionary goals in mind. These black evangelicals immediately formed churches such as Providence Baptist Church and worked tirelessly to spread the gospel to Africans.
