My Dear Liberia

(2 customer reviews)


SKU: 2001MDL Categories: , Product ID: 525


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.

    An insight into Liberian culture – I have just read “My Dear Liberia – Recollections”, and was very impressed with both the content and style. As an American, I really felt like I gained some insight into Liberian life and culture. I would recommend this book for a wide audience, including those who teach courses covering African/African-American studies. It is very readable (right down to the crossword and word scramble), and yet provides a window into the life of those who are of Liberian heritage.

    I lived in Liberia for over 20 years. It is a wonderful place and Ophelia takes us back to those wonderful years, the traditions of family and honor that we should never forget. I recommend MY DEAR LIBERIA to those who know Liberia, and those who wish to know Her. I am very proud of Ophelia and her writing for future generations. Love always, Thelma J.
