“The African Book of Names addresses the complexity and cultural sensitivity of descendants of enslaved Africans in the western hemisphere. Since the 1960s, African descendants have renamed ourselves or given our children African designations. [Askhari Hodari’s] work is a tremendous resource as it not only provides names but offers context for such decisions. Her book will contribute to reconnection and community-building throughout the African world.- Akinyele Umoja, Associate Professor, Black Studies, Georgia State University
Liberia was settled by former American slaves, who came back to Africa.
