For over 400 years Africans in the United States have fought to realize the principles embedded in the Declaration of Independence and framed the in the US constitution. This book considers the position of African-Americans within American society as a whole, within the context of black non-state-nation status, and in connection to foreign policy relating to other black nations. The book looks at cases such as Italy's invasion of Ethiopia, the use of the African-American community's political power to influence foreign policy regarding South Africa, and the practice of turning back Haitian refugees. The spiritual roots of Pan-Africanism are examined, and the role of the oral tradition, Ethiopian christianity and African culture in the early slave revolts are focused on. Also examined are the emigration debate, nationalism and Pan-Africanism strategies of Martin Delaney, repatriation efforts, the back-to-Africa movement, the impact of Malcolm X, the activities of various African-American organizations, and the role and influence of black legislators on US foreign policy.
