This chapter attempts the explication of gender and identity in Africa and among Africans in the Diaspora, and how this crisis of identity, occasioned by a multiplicity of issues affecting the immigrant, pushes them to leave the Diaspora back to their home countries in Africa. It discusses the phenomenon of reverse migration as captured in a play entitled Legacies by Tess Akaeke Onwueme, a Nigerian playwright. The play, itself, is a trenchant and convoluted narrative that dramatizes the effects of nineteenth century slavery, love and betrayal, which results in Mimi, a woman living in America, embarking on the quest to trace her Nigerian homeland. Historically, the migration of Africans to Europe and America took place in at least two 'waves'—the first, according to Toyin Falola, was the transatlantic slave trade begun in 1444 when Portuguese traders started raiding for slaves in the Senegal river.
