In 1930, when Philippa was conceived by Josephine, George Putnam, the publisher of the New York Evening Post, asked George Schuyler to go to Liberia for a secret mission. At that time, there were some reports that a new form of slavery had sprung up in Africa. In Liberia, boys were being sold to work on Spanish plantations and there were some allegations that the president and highest Liberian officers were involved. George spent weeks in the forest gathering information and by early April of that year, George caught malaria at the mountain town of Sublima. He had been totally out of touch with Josephine, who was pregnant with Philippa. He was again called for another secret mission, NACCP's journal, resulting his absence on the first or second birthday of her daughter.
