“Two supplementary forces drove Ethiopianism.

One was the will to believe, in the face of the manifest diversity of so-called Africans in and out of the vast continent, that there was such a thing as African identity, a soul of black folk.
The other was the idea that, partaking in this mystical soulfulness, black people exiled in America formed, in Du Bois’s phrase, “a nation within a nation.”
— Ichiro Takayoshi
