Vamba Sherif – Land of my Fathers

Friday 4 November, 7pm

In 1822 more than 15,000 freed slaves and Black Americans are paid to leave and settle in Liberia. Against a backdrop of French and British colonialists, and tribes unashamedly trading in human bondage, the hopes and dreams of the newly arrived become entangled in the reality of building a new life in a foreign land. It is not the ‘home’ they had dreamt of returning to. Where men should stand shoulder to shoulder, they turn on each other instead.

Profoundly evocative, Liberia ‘s most successful author Vamba Sherif’s Land of my Fathers draws a compelling portrait of colonialism, slavery, immigration, identity and the forging of new lives within disparate populations
