The Myth “Africa had no writing” is a persistent as it is entirely false. Africa had knowledge of the written word before Europe.

Above, and under the Sahara different scripts were used. Africans made great advances in the arts & sciences.
Writing was independently invented in Africa centuries before the written word would be introduced to Europe.
In fact Europe needed to be reintroduced writing 3 different times! No other continent managed to gain and forget so much knowledge. The west uses Phoenician letters.

Early Liberia’s biggest political conflict was not between Settlers and indigenous people but between the liberal elitist Republican Party against the Populist True Whig Party.

The power struggle between them would turn Liberia into a one party state.
#Liberia 🇱🇷 #History a🧵…
Contrary to popular belief “Americo”Liberians never really saw themselves as one ethnic group.

They where actually just groups of repatriated families coming from all over America and Barbados.

Individual family ties and status where far more important than ethnicity.

The Battle of Trade Town was on April 9th 1826.

The first Liberian pilgrims aided by their Native Allies, an American ship and a Colombian ship attacked a Spanish-French Slave Factory.

The Liberians saw wiping out slavery as their god given duty.

A Thread🧵…
#Liberia #History

This image isn’t actually trade town many of the images you will see are not actually trade town but random pics of black militias fighting white slavers for the ascetic
This is actually for Lomboko that’s why you see a Union Jack. Trade town had a different for but they where owned by the same slaver Pedro Blanco
When the first Liberian settlers went back to Africa they where embraced by the indigenous locals, there was just one major issue, the
Slave Trade was still active.

France and Spain had coastal slave factories enslaving many Africans. The forts all needed to be destroyed.

Black Americans aren’t indigenous to America and that’s ok!

African Americans are being bombarded with false propaganda like #SecureTheTribe claiming they’re the real Indians and they’re not Africans.

These claims are easily proven false but let’s look deeper into this. A🧵…

The Acronyms cults believe that is a disconnect from Africa they will be fully embraced into American Whiteness and get reparations.

SecureTheTribe inccorectly believes Native Americans got reparations(they’re stupid). So by claiming indigenatiy the government will cut checks.

They fought over one issue, slavery.

Dei captives held by Gatumba escaped him and ran to the new Liberian town of Millsburg.
Gatumba attacked the town to get his slaves back...
#Liberia #History a🧵…
Millsburg was a small town on the St. Paul river a few miles away from Monrovia.
The Americo Liberians and Dei fortified the town, but Chief Gatumba was able to surround the town and attack.
The Gola warriors killed the defenders and sacked the town capturing many captives.

Vai ꕙꔤ Script was invented and perfected by Momulu Duwalu in 1830 but characters are said to have existed long before that.

Since then Vai script has inspired different groups of Africans in #Liberia 🇱🇷 and overseas to invent their own scripts for their languages.

A THREAD🧵 Vai is written like hieroglyphs. The Scripts letters indicate sound and meaning.
For instance ꕀ (Ji) means water and the pictograph is shaped like a wave.
Another example is ꕒ (ba) meaning mother.
The bump on the letter ꕒ is supposed to look like a mothers baby bump🤰🏿.

Mansa Musa was NOT a white man!! 😂💀
Right wingers are circulating a video white washing the history of the Mali Empire, made by fraud grifter and #snowtep ❄️ @robertsepehr.

This thread will breakdown and debunk this stupid video.
ImageImage The video begins by asserting Mansa Musa was a white beber and the ruling class of the Mali empire where all white moors.

This issue is Musa and the Keita dynasty where not moors at all they where black Mandinka(Mande).

The Anglo-Vai war began this month in May 1883, 140 years ago.

The Vai people of the Gallinas in modern day #SierraLeone 🇸🇱and #Liberia 🇱🇷 fought the #British Empire 🇬🇧.
Manja Gbili led a Guerrilla war against the odds resisting the British imperial army.

A #history thread🧵… ImageImage The British excuse for attacking the Vai and take their territory was to wipe out the slave trade in the area.
The issue is the Vai hadn’t participated in the Slave trade for decades.

The British just wanted to take control of the local trade in palm oil and salt and steal land. Image

On November 12 1985 President Doe was nearly overthrown.

Ex ally General Quiwonkpa attempted a coup to end Doe’s tyrannical rule over #Liberia 🇱🇷.

Liberian #history would’ve changed if not for soldiers from #Israel 🇮🇱 who came to aid of Doe.

These events led to civil war. Image After the 1980 Coup the “People’s Redemption Council” governed Liberia.
They invited members of the former opposition, the Progressive Alliance to help govern the Country.

They would end up leaving the government when it was clear the PRC was just a bunch of corrupt thieves. ImageImage

The 1980 coup in #Liberia 🇱🇷 altered the course of the country’s #history. The Coup was supposedly led by illiterate Master Sergeant Samuel K. Doe.

He didn’t really plan the coup against President Tolbert however, he served greater #CIA 🇺🇸 interest.

A Thread🧵… ImageImage Liberia in the late 70s was going through turbulent times. Long standing issues such as the price of food, wealth inequality and political freedom where present.
