The New Ship of Zion explores the dynamic Diaspora dimensions
of the African Hebrew Israelites, a spiritual movement of
African Americans who have traced their roots to Zion. With
the successful establishment of thriving
model communities in Israel and Ghana they have built up a
framework for repatriation to the motherland.

The resulting constructions of ethnic and cultural identity
are the subjects of this book. It also sheds light on the
ideological concepts of other communities that travel the same
waters as the New Ship of Zion, such as the Rastafarians.
