My great grandfather and family were on the docks at Savanah, Ga in 1873 with the intention of returning to Africa, but my great grandmother and the children, including my grandmother, were being told by white planters trying to hold on to workers tha they would be killed and eaten by cannibals. My grandmother reported they were all crying and begging my great grandfather not to make them go; he finally relented but instead of staying in Ga, they wagon trained out West. Most african american by this time had no knowledge or connection to Africa, because the African slave trade was technically over in early 1800s; however in my great grandfathers case he was illegally brought to this country as an 11 year old in 1845, and he had actual knowledge of Africa. I often wonder what my life would have been like.
