People have had enough, especially after President Sirleaf conceded in her last State of the Nation Address that she failed in reconciliation and anti-corruption. It is shame that though we have had more than a decade of the silence of gunshots we have not been able…

Marcus Garvey and UNIA Failed Liberia Expedition

By Morgan Files Widespread misconceptions surround the aborted plans for a UNIA settlement program in the Republic of Liberia in the 1920s. Chief among these is that the Liberian upper classes were averse to Garvey’s plans which would have undermined “Americo-Liberian hegemony” over the country. The more complicated truth has less to do with “Americo-Liberian hegemony” than a curious combination of French, British and American interests in Africa, an all-too-human rivalry between Garvey and African-American scholar W.E.B. Du Bois, and Marcus Garvey’s own failure to keep his grandiose plans under…

Making Sense of Anti-Dual Citizenship in Liberia

The Editor, Let’s say all things are equal…, before, during, and now in post-Civil Wars Liberia. Which ordinary Liberian can turn down an offer when ask to board a plane or ship for the citizenship of Europe or the United States? Acceptance will be overwhelming… not because of disloyalty to “Mama Liberia”. It is simply for opportunity for better livelihood, which is beyond the reach of majority of the Liberian population. But do you know accepting such an offer is interpreted a “crime of disloyalty” to Liberia in comparison to…
