Summary: Rozyna, mother of four and a lifelong teacher, was born in Monrovia, Liberia, in 1960. Currently, she holds an A/AA MS educatoras license. Threatened by an inevitable civil war in her country, she was forced into voluntary exile in 1987. In search of peace and tranquility, she relocated to Batesville, Mississippi. Rozyna tells a riveting story of the sufferings and pains that her paternal grandmotheras family had to undergo as slaves in the American South, as well as the kindness of their master
in obtaining their passage on the schooner Elizabeth, which sailed from America to Africa in 1820. Once on African soil, her family was confronted with many dangers while attempting to start life all over, literally, from scratch. For her family, slavery was not a life sentence of poverty, only a costly source of inspiration. Refusing to continue living in a state of nothingness, once set free, they put forth all their efforts to live respectable, productive lives from one generation to another, so that the blood and sweat of their forefathers would not be in vain. Since the country was founded, Liberiaas roles as Americaas bastard, step and foster child, over the years, are casually examined.
