In 1811, Paul Cuffe, "a black man who was a wealthy man of property, a petitioner for equal rights for blacks"  began to explore the idea of Black people returning to their native land; convinced that "Opportunities for the advancement of black people were limited in America, and he became interested in African colonization."With the help of Quakers in Philadelphia, he was able to transport 38 blacks to Freetown, Sierra Leone in 1815.
