Liberian writers and their books
List of Liberian writers - WikipediaBefore delivering a lecture at a university in Hungary two years ago, I presented some slides to the professors of the board along with two wooden masks I had brought from Liberia, holding them in my arms as if they were my children. The professors of the board asked about my choice. I chose them because of the power of supremely well organised forms, the unification of form and expressive power. These masks belong to an art with origins before recorded history; their images were chosen to illustrate permanence, universality, perfection. Thus, they are culture carriers across time and borders. They have a definite role in the evolution of culture, ensuring its continuity and bringing about innovation. A nation survives through its culture.
