What are Ellen Stofan's plans for the nation's most visited museum?
Charles Taylor is best known as the infamous warlord — and later president — of Liberia who led civil wars in that nation and Sierra Leone in the 1990s. Perhaps less well known is the story of his son Chucky, born and raised in the U.S, but who later joined his father in a brutal, lawless suppression of Liberia’s citizens. Chucky’s reign of terror under his father shocked even Charles Taylor himself and would ultimately lead to his being sentenced in the U.S. for war crimes. Kojo explores how the young Taylor went from average American kid to brutal warlord.
