Patricia Jabbeh Wesley's project is to collect, compile, edit, and anthologize the literary works, including poetry, short stories, and photographs of established and emerging Liberian writers in a book titled, Breaking the Silence: Anthology of Liberian Literature. My fall semester will involve the project of collecting and compiling these literary and artistic works, a project that should take an entire calendar year to complete, and now probably longer with COVID-19. The anthology will also include the works of emerging and younger Liberian writers, works by her generation of Liberian writers, including her own work, the works of older generations of Liberian writers, and the oldest generation of Liberian writers from the 1800-early 1900s.
