I just gathered together some links to make sense of the disaster in Haiti. I wanted to dig a little deeper about the people who live and love in Haiti. Haiti is the First Black Republic in the Western Hemisphere as a result of the Haitian Revolution a slave revolt, led by Toussaint L’Ouverture. I wanted to humanise the people for myself and for people interested in art and culture too. Haiti’s debts started when they had to buy their freedom from France to compensate the slave owners for the loss of income. Here are some links I found.
