African Americans


After the cold war, the American society had gone through a number of changes. The biggest change was the proper recognition of the Afro-American people in the country. The Afro-Americans founded a movement to ensure proper and fair treatment for the black people all over America. In the year 1954, the Supreme Court of USA had given a ruling that separate education for children of black people was not in equality with the children of white people, and that the children of blacks should study with the white children. Martin Luther King led this movement. After this movement, the black people got an equal status in the American society.

They settled in Liberia between 1820 and 1865 and after.

Unfortunately they behaved with respect to indigenous controls and Senegal as a conquered country and refused to share power. This divide between Americans and indigenous was instrumental in the recent civil war that brought Liberia to fire and sword. Charles Taylor, one of the ringleaders is of U.S. origin. Today the black community is composed of a major class and an underclass (underclass) between which the gap is widening. Those who remained in urban ghettos live in unimaginable conditions at the turn of the century, poor housing and unsanitary, substandard schools, broken families, teenage pregnancy, drug-related crime, spread of AIDS, etc.
