Abstract:This essay is a description of a research project that the author undertook in 2010 when African slavery diasporans were attempting to connect to Cameroon, a country little discussed in the history of the Transatlantic slave trade. The essay addresses the impetus for this research which is grounded in the age-old desire of human beings to know their roots, claim their history, and own their identities, and spotlights Bimbia, a Transatlantic slave trade site and the first recognized in the country as a national heritage.
