Travels with Tooy
University of Chicago Press

This chapter discusses the lessons about Africans that can be learned from Tooy's life. It comments on Tooy's remark about what was lost in the Middle Passage and some of what his captive African ancestors successfully carried to the Americas. This chapter also applies Tooy's wisdom to break the ideological logjam that continues to make it difficult for scholars to provide clear answers to the question of how Africans remade themselves in the Americas, particularly as African Americans.

Keywords:   Africans, Tooy, Middle passage, ideological logjam, African Americans
