I’ve got a piece up on Compare Afrique (a DC-based blog on Africa with a wider scope than Africa in DC) that reconsiders Americo – Liberians and the True Whig Party of Liberian settlers that ruled the country until 1980.

Liberia’s black settlers and Zimbabwe’s white settlers are two of my major African historical interests.

On a note pertaining more specifically to the Africa in DC theme, a few weeks ago the Young Professionals in Foreign Policy Africa Discussion Group hosted a senior USAID official who discussed US development efforts in Somalia.  Read about it here.
