Replants Liberia into the soil of African history
The Honorable Marcus Garvey said, “A people without the knowledge of their past history, origin and culture is like a tree without roots.” Dr Burrowes has replanted Liberia into the soil of African history by smelting this book, Between the Kola Forest and the Salty Sea, like a Kissi blacksmith who smelts iron to make a currency. This book is rich with historical, theological, political and economical realities of Liberia that we must read.
Very few authors have presented historical details about Liberia before 1822 and this book set the standard for younger Liberians and Africans to research and rewrite our history. Malcolm X said “Of all our studies, history is best qualified to reward our research,” and Dr Burrowes has excellently researched and brought the past into the future.
