The Exportation of American Higher Education to West Africa: Liberia College, 1850-1900
Livingston, Thomas W.
Journal of Negro Education, 45, 3, 246-262, Sum 76
Noting that Liberia College, although not operating until 1862, happens to have been the first American collegiate institution proposed specifically for the higher education of blacks, this article discusses what the first degree granting college in West Africa was, and how it could have been generated or sustained by a Liberian population of between five and six thousand, only one-fourth of which was literate.
