How many people in Africa are African-American?

Not a significant number. Though some could consider those in Liberia to be the most "african-american", since Liberia was established to send black slaves from the US "back" to Africa. To be African-American presumably means that your ancestry is in Africa and you are in America. This is a rather outdated term and not descriptive, however, since most "African-Americans" living in America know little of their ancestry in Africa and as are established in America as any other person. They feel the same culture shock, etc, while in Africa.
