Simone moved to in 1974 on the invitation of South African singer Miriam Makeba. Simone had been disheartened by the American struggle for civil rights, as well as the deaths of Martin Luther King, Jr. and her friends Malcolm X and Langston Hughes. Liberian president William J. Tolbert, Jr. had developed a progressive agenda that spoke the language of black consciousness and narrowed the gap between the native-born and the country’s educated elite. For a time, Liberia ...

“Anybody can be great because anybody can serve.” - Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. A life of service is what leads to great achievements taking place in humanity. Let us never fight for honor or leadership before we fight for who can do more to advance those who need help advancing and to lift those who need help being lifted. The greatest leader is the greatest servant. Dr. King knew this and for that, we honor him. #thankyou
