Munah Smith, an immigrant from Liberia, sits in the living room of her apartment in the Park Hill neighborhood of Staten Island with Blessing, the daughter of a young couple currently living with Munah, stands beneath her.
The Park Hill neighborhood is home to the largest Liberian community outside Liberia, an African country founded by freed American slaves in the 1840s. Many Liberians fled their country due to The Liberian Civil War that took place from 1986-1997. Munah lost both her husband and later her son to the conflict.
