This review examines three recent historical studies that chronicle African American diasporic travels to Africa. Centering Africa as a key location in African diasporic imaginings and affiliations, these studies trace the shifting political and cultural meanings African Americans have mapped onto Africans and the African continent. Taken together these works highlights a new range of scholarship in the field and reveal some of the central questions shaping African diaspora studies.
