Algassimu Bah (b.1986) was a young child when his family fled the violent civil war that broke out in Liberia in 1989. Bah's family moved to Senegal and then Gambia before his father, who had worked for the American embassy, was able to move the family to the United States when Bah was eleven years old. When they were about to leave, people were really nice to them, because they wanted them not to forget about them when they arrived. After a brief stay in Philadelphia with relatives, the family moved to Detroit, Michigan.
