INTRODUCTION; Ch. 1: The First "Africans"; Ch. 2: Toward a Transformed Africa; Ch. 3: An African Homeland?; Ch. 4: Out of America; Ch. 5: Becoming African in the English Atlantic; Ch. 6: African Churches and an African Nation; EPILOGUE: THE FUGITIVE SLAVE LAW OF 1850 AND RENEWED ASSERTIONS OF AFRICAN IDENTITY
Becoming African in America reveals how African identity emerged in the late eighteenth-century Atlantic world, tracing the development of "African" from a degrading term connoting savage people, to a word that was a source of pride and unity for the diverse victims of the Atlantic slave trade.
