On ‘Radio Times’: Local Liberia community thanks ‘Princess’ Fatu Gayflor

There are between 15-30,000 Liberian immigrants living in the Philadelphia region, many of whom fled after the Liberian civil wars.

On Radio Times Thursday, host Marty Moss-Coane talked with Fatu Gayflor, artistic director of the Liberian Women’s Chorus for Change.  Gaylor is known as the “golden voice of Liberia,” because of her singing.

In this clip, callers thanked Gayflor for using her music for peace relations, women’s rights, comfort, and addressing other concerns of the local Liberian community.

“I was nine years old when I was in the war in Liberia,” one caller said. “Thank you for everything you do for Liberian women.”
