Haiti’s history is an epic filled with triumph and treachery that if ever done honestly and intellectually, a movie would be an instant classic. 

This Nation’s ancestors freed themselves from slavery, defeating one of the wealthiest empires of the 18th & 19th centuries. While battling one of the giants of oppression, Haiti caused for France to have to sell huge swathes of land it owned on our continent that originally stretched from Louisiana all the way to Canada... this became widely known as the Louisiana purchase... for some reason we weren’t taught about Haiti’s involvement as kids. Haiti upon freeing itself went on to help other oppressed and enslaved people free themselves. These actions and plenty more surely qualify for Haitian Americans to have a nationally recognized day in this country and should lead to changes in the way we educate... starting with us actually telling the truth. 

The truth will over time help shed away the fear and ignorance associated with the people and country overall and help to bring tourism and better global policies. 

Let’s change the world!
