  1. Please these research should also be conducted to the loss people on the street. I am equally sure most of them are from Cameroon too

    • Please no no no!!! We don’t want more street people in Cameroon. We just want the most famous african americans. I suspect that given their success, they may be all Bamileke

  2. We have published testimonies from regular people would have traced their ancestry back to Cameroon in one of our print issues.

    Very cool! Us, African Americans, are a mixture of various tribes predominately originating from west Africa. That is one of the reasons we are called “African-American” instead of a particular area… Another being that when slaves were taken there were empire and kingdoms in Africa as opposed to “countries”… Anyways… I love this article. I’ve always wanted to know where my ancestors were taken so that I am able to connect with my ancestral homeland… ❤

    Africa will forever be the motherland ❤ Peace to my brothers and sisters in the motherland and to my ancestors! ❤

    Jeremiah 29:10-14; the Lord says “When Babilonian 70yrs r over, I will show my concern for you n keep my promise to bring u back home. I de Lord knows the plans hv for you , plans to bring you prosperity and not disaster, plans to bring you the future you hope for. Then you will call me. You will come and pray to me, anď i will answer you. You will seek me and you will fine me because you will seek me with all your heart. Yes , I say, you will fine me and i will restore you to your land. I will gather you from every country and from every place that i have scattered you, i will bring you to the land from which i have sent you into exile”. Seek God , call on Him n he will restore you back to ur land. Don’t be discouraged, God has heard ur cry nwill eventually mk a way for you. Just trust Him for de best.
