Ken Harper is an award winning designer, photojournalist and media educator. He is the project director of Together Liberia, a digital news agency that brings together universities and leading Liberian media to empower Liberians to speak for themselves.
Liberia experienced decades of civil war that left over two hundred thousand civilians dead. Suffering from trauma, still immersed in extreme poverty and corruption, the storytellers and journalists of Liberia struggle to move forward. Together Liberia is dedicated to telling the stories of the Liberian people through word, audio and visual media.
