Did you know

Liberia is Africa's oldest Republic since July 1847. Liberia’s name derives from the Latin word "liber" meaning "free"; so named because the nation was created as a homeland for liberated African-American slaves. Facing the Atlantic Ocean, the coastline is characterized by lagoons, mangrove swamps, and river-deposited sandbars; the inland grassy plateau supports limited agriculture. In 1979, dozens of protesters were killed and hundreds injured in rice riots following a proposed increase in the price of rice in Liberia.
