    This might be a new development in modern times (since independance). However there have been many great black civilizations led by women: Nanny of Jamaica's legendary Maroon community, Queen Nzinga of Angola, and Queen Nana Yaa Asantewaa of the Ashanti, are but a handful of examples. Many African societies are historically matriarchy. Women have always been key figures (beyond sex and child bearing) in black societies...especially ones not perverted by European influences!

    Amen to that! I just hope she isn't a front for nonblack and/or male supremacy....especially since she supposedly comes from the class of "oppressionist" repatriates back in the day...

    Well one of her major tasks will be to end the tribalism that exist between the indigenous population of Liberians and the descendents of African American revolutionary war veterans.
