In the early 1990s, Wilmot Collins and his wife, Maddie, escaped the Liberian Civil War. Broke and starving, they ended up in Helena, Mont.
“Why do you think we fled?” Collins asked. “We fled because we wanted a second chance.”
Soon after moving to their first home, a neighbor knocked on their door and alerted Collins to hateful graffiti outside his house.
“On my wall was ‘KKK, Go back to Africa,’ ” Collins said.
