Haplogroup L1c2b1a'b is an African branch on the maternal tree of humanity.
What we know of it comes from two published studies (Kivisild et al., 2006 and Torroni et al., 2006). Both papers found this lineage in people from the Dominican Republic.
Geno 2.0 data includes people whose maternal origin traces to Cuba, Jamaica, and the United States.
Some people from the L1c2b1a daughter branch are present in both African Pygmy and Bantu tribal groups. This indicates that Africa was the origin for the line and that modern descendants reached North and South America through historic slave trade.
mtDNA Haplogroup L1c2b1a'b Phylotree History
Phylotree.org is the maternal (mtDNA) tree of humanity. It is maintained by Dr. Mannis Van Oven. Each build is a major update to the tree. The current build is #17.

mtDNA Haplogroup L1c2b1a'b Data Sources
GenBank is a database of genetic sequence data. It is run by the United States National Institute of Health. It serves as the main repository for mtDNA full sequence profiles. Samples come both from published academic literature and donations from genetic genealogy community members. In addition to GenBank samples, listings below may include other samples published but not submitted to GenBank such as those from the HapMap project.
Note: GenBank results currently use Phylotree build 16. I am working on changing resuts over to build 17.

Geno 2.0 Data
Data from Geno 2.0 is derived from the The National Geographic Society’s Genographic Project — the DAR. The Hg ID is specific to this site and is used to protect the identities of those who take part in Genographic research. Birth Country, Mother's Birth Country, and Maternal Grandmother's Birth Country have been normalized from DAR database fields. The Maternal Origin is determined based on the three previous fields.
Note: Geno 2.0 results currently use Phylotree build 16. I am working on changing resuts over to build 17.
