Paul Cuffe: His Purpose, Partners, and Properties


Paul Cuffe(1759-1817), was born on Cuttyhunk Island in Massachusetts to African and Native American parents. Largely self-educated, he rose to become a widely-known paragon of virtue and commitment to improving the well-being of his fellow man, especially the people of African and the African diaspora. 

This book focuses on clarifying or resolving uncertainties about three aspects of his remarkable life : the purpose of his travels to Africa; the nature of his relationships with several important persons who contributed significantly to his success; and the various properties that he owned in and around the town of Westport - including their locations, how and why they were acquired, and the purposes for which he used them.
