Description : Read Now Another America The Story Of Liberia And The Former Slaves Who Ruled It by James Ciment and you can download with pub, pdf, txt, doc, and more file format with free account. the first popular history of the former american slaves who founded, ruled, and lost africa's first republic in 1820, a group of about eighty african americans reversed the course of history and sailed back to africa, to a place they would name after liberty itself. they went under the banner of the american colonization society, a white philanthropic organization with a dual agenda: to rid america of its blacks, and to convert africans to christianity. the settlers staked out a beachhead; their numbers grew as more boats arrived; and after breaking free from their white overseers, they founded liberia—africa's first black republic—in 1847. james ciment's another america is the first full account of this dramatic experiment. with empathy and a sharp eye for human foibles, ciment reveals that the americo-liberians struggled to live up to their high ideals. they wrote a stirring declaration of independence but re-created the social order of antebellum dixie, with themselves as the master caste. building plantations, holding elegant soirees, and exploiting and even helping enslave the native liberians, the persecuted became the persecutors—until a lowly native sergeant murdered their president in 1980, ending 133 years of americo rule. the rich cast of characters in another america rivals that of any novel. we encounter marcus garvey, who coaxed his followers toward liberia in the 1920s, and the rubber king harvey firestone, who built his empire on the backs of native liberians. among the americoes themselves, we meet the brilliant intellectual edward blyden, one of the first black nationalists; the baltimore-born explorer benjamin anderson, seeking a legendary city of gold in the liberian hinterland; and president william tubman, a descendant of georgia slaves, whose economic policies brought cadillacs to the streets of monrovia, the liberian capital. and then there are the natives, men like joseph samson, who was adopted by a prominent americo family and later presided over the execution of his foster father during the 1980 coup. in making liberia, the americoes transplanted the virtues and vices of their country of birth. the inspiring and troubled history they created is, to a remarkable degree, the mirror image of our own.

Description : Read Now Liberia by Frank Sherman and you can download with pub, pdf, txt, doc, and more file format with free account. this work is a general introduction to liberia. it is comprehensive in scope covering a wide range of subjects from a historical and contemporary perspective. it is intended for members of the general public. but some members of the academic community may also find this work to be useful in their fields. subjects covered include an overview of the country and its geography including all the regions - known as counties - and the different ethnic groups who live there. the work is also a historical study of liberia since the founding of the country by freed black american slaves. one of the subjects covered in the book is the conflicts - including wars - the new black american settlers had with the indigenous people. the freed slaves who, together with their descendants, came to be known as americo-liberians, dominated the country and excluded the indigenous people from the government and other areas of national life for almost 160 years until the americo-liberian rulers were overthrown in a military coup in 1980. it was one of the bloodiest military coups in modern african history. the soldiers who overthrew the government were members of native tribes and were hailed as liberators by the indigenous people who had been dominated and had suffered discrimination at the hands of americo-liberians throughout the nation's history. some of them were even sold into slavery in panama by the americo-liberian rulers in the 1930s, prompting an investigation of the labour scandal by the league of nations. others were forced to work on various projects within liberia itself and became virtual slaves in their own country. americo-liberians saw the natives as inferior to them and treated them that way. the mistreatment of the members of native tribes by the americo-liberians was one of the main reasons native soldiers of the liberian army decided to overthrow the government. the book also covers the liberian civil war which destroyed the country in the 1990s and early 2000s, a conflict which also had historical roots. the conflict is attributed to the inequalities between americo-liberians and the indigenous people which existed throughout the nation's history. but its immediate cause was the brutalities liberians suffered under the military rulers who overthrew the americo-liberian-dominated government. another major subject covered in the book is the ethnic composition of liberia. the work looks at all the ethnic groups in the country and their home regions - counties - as well as their cultures, providing a comprehensive picture of life in contemporary times in africa's oldest republic. the national culture of liberia in general is also another subject addressed in the book. the author has also addressed another very important subject: indigenous forms of writing invented by the members of different tribes or ethnic groups in liberia. the indigenous scripts are a major contribution to civilisation and liberia stands out among all the countries on the african continent as the country which has the largest number of these forms of writing. people going to liberia for the first time, and anybody else who wants to learn about this african country, may find this work to be useful.

Description : Read Now The Price Of Liberty by Claude Andrew Clegg III and you can download with pub, pdf, txt, doc, and more file format with free account. in nineteenth-century america, the belief that blacks and whites could not live in social harmony and political equality in the same country led to a movement to relocate african americans to liberia, a west african colony established by the united states government and the american colonization society in 1822. in the price of liberty, claude clegg accounts for 2,030 north carolina blacks who left the state and took up residence in liberia between 1825 and 1893. by examining both the american and african sides of this experience, clegg produces a textured account of an important chapter in the historical evolution of the atlantic world. for almost a century, liberian emigration connected african americans to the broader cultures, commerce, communication networks, and epidemiological patterns of the afro-atlantic region. but for many individuals, dreams of a pan-african utopia in liberia were tempered by complicated relationships with the africans, whom they dispossessed of land. liberia soon became a politically unstable mix of newcomers, indigenous peoples, and "recaptured" africans from westbound slave ships. ultimately, clegg argues, in the process of forging the world's second black-ruled republic, the emigrants constructed a settler society marred by many of the same exclusionary, oppressive characteristics common to modern colonial regimes.

Power-Greene and you can download with pub, pdf, txt, doc, and more file format with free account. against wind and tide tells the story of african american’s battle against the american colonization society (acs), founded in 1816 with the intention to return free blacks to its colony liberia. although acs members considered free black colonization in africa a benevolent enterprise, most black leaders rejected the acs, fearing that the organization sought forced removal. as ousmane k. power-greene’s story shows, these african american anticolonizationists did not believe liberia would ever be a true “black american homeland.” in this study of anticolonization agitation, power-greene draws on newspapers, meeting minutes, and letters to explore the concerted effort on the part of nineteenth century black activists, community leaders, and spokespersons to challenge the american colonization society’s attempt to make colonization of free blacks federal policy. the acs insisted the plan embodied empowerment. the united states, they argued, would never accept free blacks as citizens, and the only solution to the status of free blacks was to create an autonomous nation that would fundamentally reject racism at its core. but the activists and reformers on the opposite side believed that the colonization movement was itself deeply racist and in fact one of the greatest obstacles for african americans to gain citizenship in the united states. power-greene synthesizes debates about colonization and emigration, situating this complex and enduring issue into an ever broader conversation about nation building and identity formation in the atlantic world.

Description : Read Now Mississippi In Africa by Alan Huffman and you can download with pub, pdf, txt, doc, and more file format with free account. when wealthy mississippi cotton planter isaac ross died in 1836, his will decreed that his plantation, prospect hill, should be liquidated and the proceeds from the sale be used to pay for his slaves’ passage to the newly established colony of liberia in western africa. ross’s heirs contested the will for more than a decade, prompting a deadly revolt in which a group of slaves burned ross’s mansion to the ground. but the will was ultimately upheld. the slaves then emigrated to their new home, where they battled the local tribes and built vast plantations with greek revival–style mansions in a region the americo-africans renamed “mississippi in africa.” in the late twentieth century, the seeds of resentment sown over a century of cultural conflict between the colonists and tribal people exploded, begetting a civil war that rages in liberia to this day. tracking down prospect hill’s living descendants, deciphering a history ruled by rumor, and delivering the complete chronicle in riveting prose, journalist alan huffman has rescued a lost chapter of american history whose aftermath is far from over.
