From the first African American diplomats to the special mission of W.E.B. Du Bois to Liberia in 1924, Skinner demonstrates the shared commitment of African American leaders to protect and defend Liberia as a symbol of black nationality in Africa. The study discusses the emergence of Pan-Africanist ideology, the spread of the African Methodist Episcopal (AME) Church and examines the efforts of African Americans to use Pan-African Congresses and the Garvey and missionary movements to influence United States policy towards Africa.
