Barkue Tubman '92 spoke about her successful career in the entertainment industry and her choice to return to her native Liberia in an May 14 article published on BET.com.
Tubman, who left Liberia with her family in 1980 following the violent overthrow of the nation’s government, graduated from Elon with a degree in business administration and went on to achieve success in the music and entertainment industry. In 1999, after serving as vice president of producer management and artist manager for Violator Records, she launched Miss Boss Lady Entertainment International, a full-service event planning and marketing firm with offices in Baltimore, Md., and Monrovia, Liberia.
She returned to Liberia in 2005.
The BET.com article touches on Tubman’s family history in Liberia – her grandfather once served as the nation’s president – and her passion for encouraging young Liberians to become active participants in the future of their country.
