Leaders of Haiti 1804 - 2001
Historical Overview
Max Manigat   (More from this author)
 
With the poverty and political upheaval that has plagued Haiti throughout its existence as an independent nation, the country has been nothing more than a footnote in many history books. Because numerous second and third generation Haitian-Americans have no real sense of the struggles their ancestors had gone through, this book is specifically written with them in mind. Often a sense of shame inhabits those descendants of the African slaves who astonished the word in 1804. Living in an organized and rich society, they do not realize the hopes and expectations that presided over the creation of that unique sanctuary of Black freedom in the Americas; a bleak present tends to obliterate a glorious past. These pages are a contribution to a better knowledge of what Haiti represents, even if the results of two hundred years of constant fighting for survival do not amount to any kind of success. How do you build a Black nation from scratch in a hostile world? Although the answer, to this day, has not been found, the long march continues.
