Review "A welcome addition to scholarship in Arkansas, African American, and southern history. . . . Highly recommended." -- Choice "This is a serious work of scholarship. Barnes should be commended for meticulously and analytically treating a painful but important aspect of Liberian-American relations." -- American Historical Review "Drawing upon an impressive trove of primary and secondary materials. . . . Barnes demonstrates his skill and sensitivity as a thoughtful historian. . . . [A] substantive history. Meticulously researched and clearly written." — History "A poignant portrait of the overlooked back-to-Africa movement in the American South." — W. Fitzhugh Brundage, University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, editor of Booker T. Washington and Black Progress "Anyone interested in the lives of poor black men and women will find this a compelling read."— James H. Meriwether, author of Proudly We Can Be Africans: Black Americans and Africa, 1935-1961 From the Inside Flap Founded in the 1820s by the American Colonization Society as an African refuge for former American slaves, Liberia in the late 1800s received more emigrants from Arkansas than from any other state. Barnes explains why the back-to-Africa movement was so strong in Arkansas and how Africa figured in the thinking of poor black farmers of the rural South.
