Today’s Holiday: Joseph Jenkins Roberts’s Birthday

Today’s Holiday:
Joseph Jenkins Roberts’s Birthday

Joseph Jenkins Roberts (1809-1876), Liberia’s first and seventh president, led the movement for an independent Liberia, established in 1848. This day (also known as J. J.

Article of the Day:

According to Greek mythology, Marsyas was a satyr—a half-man, half-goat creature prone to merrymaking—who found a flute discarded by the goddess Athena and became so proficient at playing it that he challenged the lyre-playing god Apollo to a contest.
