Dragutin Lerman, member of the expedition of the famous British explorer of Africa Henry Morton Stanley, in 1888 lived in Monrovia the capital of the Liberian Republic where he met an educated African dr Edward Wilmot Blyden (1832-1912) a West Indian scholar who settled in Liberia where he published a newspaper and built up a college. In his diary Lerman wrote about this intelligent and hearty person, prototype of a true African. Lerman was impressed by Blyden's book "Christianity, Islam and the Negro race" first published in 1887. Blyden tried to establish an independent African Church with strong Islamic features, believing that Christianity alone was less suitable for the Africans. In Blyden Lerman found, in many ways, a right handman. Today we know that Blyden's ideas on race relations foreshadowed the philosophy of Aime Cesaire and Leopold Senghor.
