Abstract:In order to find the roots of the civil war that exploded in Liberia in the last decade of the 20th century, this paper looks into the question of whether, in this context, there is any evidence of historical significance that can be determined as legacies of the African Americans. It traces the African Americans' actions from their arrival at Africa's West coast in the beginning of the 19th century onward up to the beginning of the civil war in 1989. Bibliogr.
