Biafra button
This was a button, circa 1969, worn in support of the Igbo people, who lived in the Southeastern portion of Nigeria. They broke away from Nigeria, and fought a war against that nation for their freedom. Eventually, the war ended in a stalemate with Biafra remaining part of Nigeria. Many nations and notables supported Biafra. There was a student from Biafra at WestConn in Danbury, where I attended classes. He spoke passionately about his country's fight for freedom to my class on African Studies, and distributed the button to me and my classmates. Copyright: Marc Catone 2011
