If you go to the National Geographic human migration atlas at this link:

At the top of the atlas is a timeline starting at 200,000 BC. If you click on 20,000 BC, your M2 people have emerged in human history. Move your cursor into Africa and you can see how they branched off from M lines and headed south.

If you click on M2, you will get an overview of the people and E3a haplogroup. Most African Americans have ancestors from this group.

African Ancestry is a company that says they can perhaps give you a more exact location for your ancestors. This is what they say in their FAQ:

"Can you tell what tribe I am from?
We cannot necessarily tell you the particular tribe with which you share genetic ancestry. However, we can tell you the present-day country of Africa with which your lineage shares"

And this is their link:

I hope this helps.
