Abstract:In the period immediately after the abolition of the slave trade many of these dispersed Africans found their way back 'home', among whom were those who settled in Ghana. This paper looks in particular at the returnees from Brazil, those form the USA, Canada, Britain and the West Indies, who came indirectly through Sierra Leone, as well as some Jamaican Christians who came in as what may be called 'auxiliary missionairies' of the Basel Mission. The author also considers the interesting case of some African-American immigrants brought in by the Ghanaian entrepreneur, Chief (Prince) Alfred C. Sam in the years 1914-1915 in an aborted experiment. Bibliogr., notes, ref. [ASC Leiden abstract]
