New Directions in the Study of African American Recolonization

Debra Newman Ham

University Press of Florida

This chapter examines the role of African American women in the African recolonization movement. Newman-Ham points out that more women than men sought passage to Liberia and that, once they arrived in the colony, they contributed immensely to the growth and development of Liberia, especially in matters of education and religion. She maintains that these women, from divergent cultures and backgrounds, interacted with and supported each other, becoming distinctly Liberian women.
