A small nation in West Africa, Liberia has deep ties to the United States; it is the only African nation that was colonized by freed American slaves in the midst of indigenous Africans already occupying the area. From 1989-2003, Liberia underwent a brutal civil war that killed approximately a quarter of a million people and decimated this tiny country. AfroApparel’s Liberia tee pays tribute the pride that Liberians feel of their connection to America by featuring a unique design inspired by the Liberian flag. The red and white stripes, similar to that of the United States, represent independence, bravery and moral excellence, while the white star symbolizes freedom for the once-enslaved.
