By Marie Tyler-McGraw

The nineteenth-century American Colonization Society (ACS) undertaking of persuading all American loose blacks to to migrate to the ACS colony of Liberia may well by no means be comprehensive. Few loose blacks volunteered, and larger numbers may have beaten the meager assets of the ACS. on condition that fact, who supported African colonization and why? No country used to be extra concerned with the venture than Virginia, the place white Virginians supplied a lot of the political and organizational management and black Virginians supplied a majority of the emigrants.

In An African Republic, Marie Tyler-McGraw strains the parallel yet seldom intersecting tracks of black and white Virginians' pursuits in African colonization, from revolutionary-era efforts at emancipation laws to African American church buildings' challenge for African missions. In Virginia, African colonization attracted getting older revolutionaries, republican moms and their daughters, bondpersons schooled and emancipated for Liberia, evangelical planters and retailers, city unfastened blacks, opportunistic politicians, Quakers, and gents novelists.

An African Republic follows the stories of the emigrants from Virginia to Liberia, the place a few grew to become the management category, consciously looking to display black talents, whereas others discovered better problem and early dying. Tyler-McGraw conscientiously examines the tensions among racial identities, household visions, and republican citizenship in Virginia and Liberia.
