Senegal : Senegal offers land to Haitians

Awhile back:

I do recall hearing and reading about those early attempts to resettle freed black slaves...

Some were supported by the Senegalese, i. e., whereas there was a island where the returnees were reacquainted with their african roots, etc....

All of this took place long before the fall of the U. S. southern state backed plantation economy after the Civil War, etc.

So what today's Senegalese mainstays are doing is more of the same...

:fyi:

Don't know about the Senegalese, but resettlement of freedmen is the birth of Liberia. Also the reason for a group of English speaking descendent's up on the north coast around Samana. This was done during the time that Haiti was in control of the Dominican Republic. 1822-1844.

Jean-Pierre Boyer, President of Haiti, sent some Haitian families to live in Tessón, to the north of Santa Bárbara de Samaná. Boyer brought ex-slaves from Philadelphia to live in the country, and 200 of them were taken to live in Samaná. Both the Haitian and the American populations kept their languages and traditions.

Chuck:

At least this is the story I've heard and read about too?

But time will tell etc. if it's true or not...

After having said and written that:

The resettlement of ex black slaves in Liberia and Sierre Leone, which ironically enough was actually a bid by white investors to advance their colonialist dreams and schemes on the African continent itself, came by the way of sometimes former house slave/former white slave holders favorites, and-- in particular-- that wreaked havoc, i. e., since most (if not all) of the black returnees were little different than their former enslavers, i. e., via their anti traditionalist viewpoints etc.

Think black skins/white masks (mindsets):

Such was and is what the late Frantz Fanon was doing more than to just allude to...

But not to digress (too much)....

And-- it was only in more recent decades-- that the original inhabitants of Liberia have taken back control of their destiny-- and/or control of the nation itself...

I believe that the present Black President is a Krio...

FYI...

Lastly:

Luck and best wishes, as regards her ushering in a better present and future, for all of today's Liberian citizens...
