The End of Emancipation Street

“Civilization,” Race, and Cartography in Colonial Liberia

(p.267) 13 The End of Emancipation Street
New Directions in the Study of African American Recolonization

Robert Murray

University Press of Florida

Using the historiography of “whiteness studies,” Murray looks at race in new ways by examining the racial attitudes of indigenous Africans toward Liberian settlers. He also examines the attitudes of Liberians themselves. Through the process of emigration, black Americans became theoretically white, at least in the minds of their indigenous neighbors, and he explores this racial transformation. He also examines the geographical layout of the colony in terms of race and racial exclusion.

Keywords:   Cartography, Liberia, Whiteness, Civilization, Americo-Liberians, Race
