Eclipsed: A Horrible Job Telling Liberian Women Story

Danai Gurira
5 African women, including the much-celebrated Lupita Nyongo, commanded the stage at the Golden Theater on Broadway as they have for the past many weeks. Their final moving performance will transport the audience to the makeshift camps and traumatized villages and towns of Liberia, where civil war spilled into homes and destroyed the lives of thousands of civilians. Oh, what a heartbreaking story to share with the world? It would have been even better if there was an effort made to know the Liberian woman.  The Liberian accent is what makes us so unique, so special and so original.  A Liberian story without the Liberian accent is just tacky and lazy.  

Dear Danai Gurira
I am not knocking your hustle girl, do you and make that money. You are about to make millions from telling the Liberian women story your way in Eclipsed. Girl, the least you could have done was to make an effort in getting the accent right. You guys made zero effort. That's a shame
