The Republic of Liberia is a country on the West African coast bordered by Sierra Leone, Guinea and The Ivory Coast. Liberia began in the early 19th century as a project of the American Colonization Society (ACS), which believed black people would face better chances for freedom and prosperity in Africa than in the United States. Liberia was the first African republic to proclaim its independence and is Africa’s first and oldest modern republic.
