Nairobi based journalist Steve Bloomfield recently wrote a fascinating story for gobal briefing publishers Monocle about Liberia ‘newspaper’ editor, publisher and designer Alfred Sirleaf – aka the blackboard blogger.

Alfred’s “Daily Talk” newspaper acts as the primary source of daily local, regional and international news for thousands of Monrovia’s citizens.

The photo’s have been taken by Ugandan based photographer Glenna Gordon and a short video of Steve’s report can be found on Youtube.
