On Afric's Shore

A History of Maryland in Liberia, 1834--1857

The enthralling story of the eleven hundred brave souls who chose to emigrate back to the west coast of Africa under the auspices of the Maryland Colonization Society. In spite of terrible hardships, the colonists created a settlement that exists to this day.

About the Author

Richard L. Hall began work on this volume in 1983 while studying at Johns Hopkins University. Under the auspices of a grant awarded by the State of Maryland, he transcribed the entire African correspondence of the Maryland State Colonization Society. In 1985--86 he was a fellow in the Writing Seminars at Hopkins.

Reviews

"Splendid... Hall has constructed not only the community's great events -- its trials, elections, and wars -- but also the thoughts and hopes of countless people striving to create a new society." -- New York Review of Books
