Talk Around Town: Barkue Tubman

4 May

As always, the “Who’s Who in Monrovia” makes sure to be seen conducting business in City Hall, and today was no exception. Barkue Tubman of Miss Boss Lady Entertainment International Group stopped through to give us her opinions on the progress of our capital city.

MCC: What do you think is the most pressing issue the Mayor’s office should be taking on?

BT: Regulating parking to free congestion in the city. The cleaning and environmental awareness is on its way. The trash cans are great and the word is being spread about cleanliness, but parking is the next step for better business in Monrovia.

MCC: We can’t work to restore our city to the way it was in 1980 or 1990, because the rest of the world has advanced, so how can we use the principle of sankofa to take our past and make our future even better?

BT: Well there are a lot of Liberians outside of Liberia, because of the war, that are doing really great things in fashion or in sports or in other great industries. Now we need to just impact the youth here and expose them to things like the fashion show coming up in May featuring Korto Momolu (view the press release here). The most pleasant surprise I’ve met in Liberia has been the willingness of young people to learn, grow, and adapt as future leaders despite the conflicts. I’ve been here about 4 or 5 years now, and young Liberians are intelligent, hard working, and progressive and I believe in the ability of all of us to bring about a brighter Liberia.

International fashion designer, Korto Momolu, will return to her home country of Liberia, in May 2011, accompanied by her public relations manager, Leonard T. DeShield, Jr., to show a 27-piece collection designed specifically for Amani Liberia’s “Sankofa Fashion Show,” to be held Saturday, May 14, 2011, 8:00 p.m. (GMT) at City Hall in Monrovia.
