About the Project
This online platform aims to make the works of Kona Khasu (*1942) - one of Liberia's foremost poets, dramatists, and critics - more widely available. In particular, the project intends:
- to contribute to the urgent task of salvaging Liberia's cultural heritage in the aftermath of two civil wars (1989-2003);
- to provide low-income readers – in Liberia and elsewhere – with free online access to carefully edited texts;
- to help foster scholarly interest in Khasu's work, and in Anglophone Liberian literature more generally.
Martin Mühlheim, in collaboration with Kona Khasu (a.k.a. James Emmanuel Roberts) and Kona Khasu, Jr.
