    The African Americans were originally taken as slaves from the continent of Africa (not the country!). The majority came from West Africa and the Maghreb which are basically the following countries:

    Benin (Dahomey)

    Burkina Faso (Upper Volta)

    Cote d'Ivoire

    Gambia

    Ghana (Gold Coast)

    Guinea

    Guinea Bissau

    Liberia

    Mali

    Mauretania

    Niger

    Nigeria

    Senegal

    Sierra Leone

    Togo (Togoland)

    The names in brackets are the old names of those countries.

    If you google it, you will find the african tribes and their respective countries which they were brought from. Mostly from west africa. Africa is a continent not a country.
