She hosted "Straight from the Heart," a radio call-in program in Liberia started by Kamara-Umunna in 2004, with funding from the United Nations Mission in Liberia. It allowed Liberians to phone in live and share their stories from the second civil war (1999-2002.) Former soldiers, many of whom were child soldiers at the time of the civil war, were frequent call-in guests, in particular. Kamara-Umunna’s call-in show was a daring experiment in how radio could be used to facilitate open conversations among perpetrators and victims about the shared devastation of war, conversations that would likely not have taken place elsewhere. She discusses that and newer projects.
