Former law professor and Supreme Court justice David Kpormakpor served as Interim President of Liberia between 1994-95, during its disastrous civil war. He now lives alone, on welfare, among thousands of Liberian refugees, many of whom question why he did not simply take the money and run when he had the chance.The Professor takes us into Kpormakpor's everyday life in New York City's "Little Liberia". 25 min., 2007. Free admission. Refreshments served.
