Liberia Rising

Liberia was a nation founded by the United States in 1821 as a place to send its newly freed Black slaves. This was an idea superior to colonization but filled with unintended consequences that reverberated for 175 years culminating in civil war between the descendants of the American freed slaves and indigenous residents. Sagamore senior fellow Donald Cassell leads a portfolio of work to help Liberia achieve its full promise as the nation turns from post-war recovery to a thriving modern society.
