Ndubueze Mbah is a West African Atlantic historian. He will examine how marginal West African intra-regional and trans-colonial migrants across Sierra Leone, southeastern Nigeria, Equatorial Guinea, and Gabon used forgery, smuggling, human trafficking, and intransigent itinerancy to express anti-imperial and abolitionist notions of freedom as well as to articulate rebellious Afropolitan belonging in ways that redefined British, Spanish, and French colonial labor and subjecthood policies in the 19th and 20th centuries.
