Published by the American Colonization Society, the journal was first known as The African Repository and Colonial Journal. In 1850 the title was changed to The African Repository, then in 1892 to Liberia.

The publication contains reports, records, and activities of the American Colonization Society, including the names of slave owners, estates, and the freed slaves who were to be colonized in Liberia, Africa. An example of the listings can be found under the heading "African Colonization in Kentucky" at the Google Books.
