Thousands of Liberians marked the bicentenary of their country with a mass rally in the capital, Monrovia, while US President Joe Biden sent a presidential delegation to take part in the celebrations. “We have made and endured 200 years of freedom and liberty and self rule and self government. After 200 years… We’re at a crossroads. We have to look at how we are going to lead our African American continent into the next 200 years” said John Henderson, an activist and descendant of freed slaves.
