Description

The Topic

“The Land Beneath Our Feet” is a captivating film that depicts the conflicts between Liberian communities and corporations, governments, and one another. The film follows a young Liberian man who uncovers explosive footage of the 1926 corporate land grab in West Africa. It sets in motion decades of broken promises, wars, and food and health crises. What can this ghostly footage offer in the debate over radical land reforms?

Dr. Vera Tolbert, Liberian Association of Pennsylvania Senior Advisor
