It Is Time For Change: Selected Speeches of William R. Tolbert, Jr. (Paperback)
Speeches of William R. Tolbert, Jr. President of the Republic of Liberia, 1971-80 Chairman of the O.A.U., 1979-80 President of the Baptist World Alliance, 1965-70 In the pantheon of Pan-Africanism, Dr. William R. Tolbert ranks in the same category as the late Kwame Nkrumah of Ghana, Julius Nyerere of Tanzania and Kenneth Kaunda of Zambia. Twenty years after his tragic death, his fame as a Pan-Africanist has not diminished. President Tolbert had a vision for Liberia, a vision of greatness, prosperity and advancement, a vision he had hoped to execute firmly. His contributions to the development and progress of Africa deserve to be recognized and remembered. Olusegun Obasanjo State House, Abuja, Nigeria September, 2000 Former President the Federal of Republic of Nigeria There is assurance of victory. It is not by might nor by power, but with a changed spirit. There is a call for fostering forgiveness and reconciliation. Likewise, there is a need to build new institutions of cooperation and solidarity. Our only hope is a replacement of hardened hearts with ones filled with Christ-like love. It is time for change Christine Tolbert Norman Abidjan, Cote d'Ivoire, 2002 Present Mayor Bentol City, Republic of Liberia Liberians scattered far and near must now turn to the spiritual dimension, which is life-giving, and reach beyond the daily struggle. Liberians must rededicate themselves to the national spirit. May the spirit of Dr. Tolbert move on eagle's wings across the horizon, transporting Liberia and "our one world" from despair to hope, inspiring humankind to turn from greed and violence, helping brothers and sisters and nations to grow and live in peace.
