Awhile back:

I do recall hearing and reading about those early attempts to resettle freed black slaves...

Some were supported by the Senegalese, i. e., whereas there was a island where the returnees were reacquainted with their african roots, etc....

All of this took place long before the fall of the U. S. southern state backed plantation economy after the Civil War, etc.

So what today's Senegalese mainstays are doing is more of the same...

:fyi:

Don't know about the Senegalese, but resettlement of freedmen is the birth of Liberia. Also the reason for a group of English speaking descendent's up on the north coast around Samana. This was done during the time that Haiti was in control of the Dominican Republic. 1822-1844.

http://simple.wikipedia.org/wiki/Samaná_Province
Jean-Pierre Boyer, President of Haiti, sent some Haitian families to live in Tessón, to the north of Santa Bárbara de Samaná. Boyer brought ex-slaves from Philadelphia to live in the country, and 200 of them were taken to live in Samaná. Both the Haitian and the American populations kept their languages and traditions.

Chuck:

At least this is the story I've heard and read about too?

But time will tell etc. if it's true or not...

After having said and written that:

The resettlement of ex black slaves in Liberia and Sierre Leone, which ironically enough was actually a bid by white investors to advance their colonialist dreams and schemes on the African continent itself, came by the way of sometimes former house slave/former white slave holders favorites, and-- in particular-- that wreaked havoc, i. e., since most (if not all) of the black returnees were little different than their former enslavers, i. e., via their anti traditionalist viewpoints etc.

Think black skins/white masks (mindsets):

Such was and is what the late Frantz Fanon was doing more than to just allude to...

But not to digress (too much)....

And-- it was only in more recent decades-- that the original inhabitants of Liberia have taken back control of their destiny-- and/or control of the nation itself...

I believe that the present Black President is a Krio...

FYI...

Lastly:

Luck and best wishes, as regards her ushering in a better present and future, for all of today's Liberian citizens...

Good news; NRA filed for bankruptcy.
Bad news; Police often kill mentally and handicapped people.
I despise these racist killing NYPD. I'm glad Attorney General Letitia James filed a law suit against NYPD for using "excessive, brutal and unlawful force" against Black Lives Matter protesters! The law suit also targets the Mayor, police commissioner Dermot Shea and Chief of Department, Terry Monahan! Several NYPD cops have been suspended, along with many other racist violent killer cops across this nation.
Will the 3 white GOPs in Congress, Gosar, Biggs and Brooks, be charged with sedition and felony murder for inciting and helping Ali Alexander plan the insurrection? Ali Alexander, black trump supporter who started Stop The Steal and organized the insurrection, threw these 3 white terrorists under the bus. All of them should get long prison sentences. Alexander, a convicted felony, will likely be charged first.
2 things to share;
a. 33 more days to go before I hit 200 straight days of exercise.
b. Pls visit orangeseahorse . com. Not selling anything! It's a free site to post true short stories, poems, etc. Also free to read. We have 500,000 views and some writers have been published. These true short stories are poignant and life changing. Thanks,
Why aren't the white domestic terrorists charged w/felony murder and terrorism? YES, I answered my own question with the phrase 'white domestic terrorist'. But let's see if black traitor "Ali Alexander" will be charged w/felony murder for helping organize the deadly insurrection. His white comrades will blame him for influencing them to commit violence. His butt will be tattered after they throw him under the bus.
