An African Republic: Black and White Virginians in the by Marie Tyler-McGraw PDF

By Marie Tyler-McGraw

The nineteenth-century American Colonization Society (ACS) venture of persuading all American unfastened blacks to to migrate to the ACS colony of Liberia may perhaps by no means be complete. Few unfastened blacks volunteered, and larger numbers may have beaten the meager assets of the ACS. provided that truth, who supported African colonization and why? No kingdom was once 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 lines 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' crisis 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 studies of the emigrants from Virginia to Liberia, the place a few grew to become the management type, consciously trying to display black skills, whereas others came across higher trouble and early loss of life. Tyler-McGraw conscientiously examines the tensions among racial identities, household visions, and republican citizenship in Virginia and Liberia.
