|The Society for the Colonization of Free People of Color of America, or the American Colonization Society, was a group founded in 1817 to send free African-Americans to Africa as an alternative to emancipation. In 1822, the Society established a United States colony on the west coast of Africa, from which the U.S. would benefit in perpetuity. In 1847 the colony became the independent country of Liberia. Henry Clay was a supporter of this movement. The Kentucky Colonization Society was formed in 1828.
