Liberia: When Darkness Falls: Liberia's Conflict Through Images (Paperback)
Liberia, once a beacon of hope and safe haven for oppressed people everywhere, went into flames on Christmas Eve in 1989. Instead of people escaping suppression in other countries, running and seeking a refuge to call their new home, Liberians ran from hell fire seeking refuge outside their country. This book, When Darkness Fall, tells the sad, shameful story of an ethnic and political blood bath that this once peaceful nation brought upon itself. Written and photographically illustrated by an icon of Liberian photography, Greg Stemn, the book is an exposition by a photojournalist who not only witnessed the events of this horrific war, but felt the pains and agonies it inflicted on the Liberian people. "Masterpiece of Photography .... A cry for reconciliation and justice and peace ... What do you see?"
