Understanding the Liberia Community
This chapter places the story of Liberia in an academic context. A Prologue outlines the book’s major themes. A review of the historical, anthropological, sociological, philosophical, and critical black feminist theory literature contextualizes the story of Liberia for an academic audience. Liberia is an example of African American resistance, resilience, and agency -- a “freedom colony” similar to others in the US and world. The chapter also summarizes and critiques the methods and sources used for the book.
