Official website of the Association of Liberian Journalists in the Americas.
Americo-Liberians are/were the relatively wealthy elite of Liberia. They are descended from former slaves,
freed blacks who immigrated in the 1800s to Liberia from America.
Some 13,000 were settled in Liberia between 1817 and 1867 by the American Colonization Society.
They adopted Christianity and lived on the coast. They based their society on U.S. culture and
political organization. Governing through the True Whig party, Americo-Liberians controlled the
country from its foundation in 1847 until the coup of Samuel Doe in 1980.
Under their rule the economy of Liberia rapidly developed, but their power rested largely on the
repression and exploitation of the indigenous African majority.
The Analyst believes that the Press must help to identify the way forward and monitor
the unfolding progress. The Analyst believes this prime objective can be institutionalized
and dispensed. In pursuance of these objectives, The Analyst ascribes to the following public
service role to itself:
Archbishop Michael K. Francis
Religious leader/Politician. Archbishop Michael K. Francis, is a respected opposition figure. The Monrovia diocese provides many of the social services the government has ignored, including the country's only respected school system. Francis, an irrepressibly jovial man, first championed the idea of sending international troops to stabilize Liberia after 14 years of civil war.
The Association for the Advancement of Liberian Girls is a not for profit organization established
as an advocate for the advancement of Liberian females through education, philanthropy, and social activities.
What started a casual conversation in a restaurant between a group of elderly Liberian men and their sexual
exploitation of young girls in Liberia has turned into a powerful network of young Liberian women wanting
to bring change to the country’s traditional male dominance.
The Association hopes to recruit more members who are willing to help in the fight for equity in education
and social standards for Liberian women and girls.
