The Deep Past of Haiti
History is like the earth, it has many layers. 'Deep Past of Haiti' will peel back the layers so that you can see what is really inside. It will go into the core of history....the told and the UNtold.
The thesis of the book is that Haiti is an island that has always been rich in resources, and that because of colonization, slavery and exploitation it has been robbed of its wealth. It is also a celebration of Haiti’s “indomitable spirit”, as the first country which was liberated by slaves.
