Paul Cuffe was one of the earliest black supporters of African recolonization efforts but this fact became inconvenient for abolitionists in the 1830s as they worked hard to resist the movement. A hero of many and revered for his independence and leadership, Cuffe’s interest in emigration complicates the story of black resistance to colonization. Antislavery leaders of the 1830s realized this and sought to rewrite the historical record and erase this aspect of Cuffe’s life. This chapter traces this process and seeks to restore the complex side of Cuffe and his work.
