      Why don’t you come by the show tonight or tomorrow at Theater for the New City 155 First Ave. When I was in Liberia I met many Native Americans who were descendants of US Native Americans, who were sent to Africa as part of the organized immigration of freed slaves to Africa from the United States, which departed New York harbor to Freetown, Sierra Leone, in West Africa. Many of those families migrated to Monrovia. Originally the work of the American Colonization Society, a U.S. organization founded in 1816 by Robert Finley to return freed American slaves to Africa. Many Native Americans were also transported from the northeastern (Massachusetts and Rhode Island) and south eastern parts of the US (Florida) to the Caribbean as well. This was also partially funded by the U.S. Congress, which in 1819 had appropriated $100,000 to be used in returning displaced Africans, illegally brought to the United States after the abolishment of the slave trade in 1808, to Africa, yet many Natives were included as well/
