From the inhuman bondage and overwhelming weight of slavery, black ‘freemen’ from America and the British colonies returned to Africa; along with native Africans and slaves rescued from seized slave ships found their own nation. “There is no other country in the world quite like Liberia,” says Ophelia, of this African nation that has been independent and self-governed since its establishment. “There is a certain pride that comes with every person that traces his/her roots to Liberia.”
Liberians enjoyed freedom until the civil war in the nineties. My Dear Liberia brings to life the enjoyable days of the past.
