Poetry is certainly a form of art that I appreciate. When I want to express myself, I write on paper, and then I read my words out loud. What I love most about poetry is that it has no boundaries, and I personally believe that freedom of expression is poetrys best friend. Poetry allows me to evolve in so many ways and challenges me to learn more and create art for the mind. Sometimes Im at a loss for words to write; at times it takes minutes, hours, days, and months for me to write a new piece. Just like any relationship, poetry requires patience, dedication, and understanding. Anyone can write a poem if they put their mind to it, but to write continuous poetry, you need the passion for it. Some may view my work as prose or spoken word; to me personally they all come from the same family, so if you are probably wondering what I write, I write poetry.

Hers is one of eleven essays and four poems included in this volume in which Latina women of African descent share their stories. The authors included are from all over Latin America-Brazil, the Dominican Republic, Haiti, Panama, Puerto Rico, Venezuela-and the United States. They write about the African diaspora and issues such as colonialism, oppression and disenfranchisement. Diva Moreira, a Brazilian, writes that she experienced racism and humiliation at a very young age. The worst experience, she remembers, was her mother's bosses' conviction that Diva didn't need to go to school after the fourth grade, "because blacks don't need to study more than that."

A Haiti Chronicle

Counselor for Public Affairs at the U.S. Embassy in Port-au-Prince in 1999-2001, Daniel Whitman was haunted by the country's people and landscapes, its nuanced language, and complex and rewarding friendships. His friends included neighbors, art gallery owners, gas station attendants - but mostly Haiti's intrepid journalists and broadcasters. Unlike others, Whitman believed that the three elections of 2000 could advance Haiti's democracy and its development from the bottom rung as poorest nation in the Western Hemisphere. He was wrong; they did not. Local supremacists killed, torched and rushed to fraud while foreigners forgave and even blessed the electoral debacles without posing the resistance even of meaningful public comment. However, seeds also germinated to make Haiti one day fit for its inventive, humor-loving and too often betrayed people. The effort was kept alive largely by Haiti's gritty journalists, going into hiding when necessary for their survival, but newly organized in October of 1999, into a tenacious and daring national federation. The nation-wide Haitian Press Federation advanced against all odds, and held eight regional meetings which changed political discourse forever in Haiti. The country now enters a post-Aristide interlude. The failure of one regime does not guarantee success for the next. A Haiti Chronicle offers recent context for understanding Haiti's current crisis, and opportunity.

Mouths Don t Speak

Honorable Mention in the 2019 OCM Bocas Prize for Caribbean Literature Longlist! "After the 2010 Haiti earthquake kills her parents, a woman returns to Haiti after leaving it as a child, 25 years ago. A powerful and engrossing story, this read cannot be missed." --Bustle, 35 Most Anticipated Fiction Books of 2018 "In this fascinating novel about Haitian life, Ulysse beautifully braids together the struggle for personal redemption with the struggle for dignity and human rights." --Rain Taxi Review of Books "Ulysse gives readers a riveting story of a woman who is trying to make sense of a homescape that, if not wholly disappeared, is irrevocably altered." --BuzzFeed "With lush descriptions and Creole-inflected dialogue, Katia D. Ulysse frankly and deftly writes about the nuances and class differences in Haiti. Mouths Don't Speak explores how trauma touches us at home and abroad, wherever those places may be. This includes the experiences of the underserved kids Jacqueline teaches, American veterans, the earthquake victims, and children and their parents. Ulysse illustrates the complicated but unbreakable connections we have to family and home, and shows how privilege doesn't necessarily keep you from tragedy." --Shelf Awareness "A captivating portrait of a woman plagued with worry about family and homeland, this beautifully written novel recalls Toni Morrison's Paradise." --Library Journal "Powerful...As Ulysse explores grief, she moves beyond her protagonist to consider the murky motivations and emotions of other characters. This is a harrowing, thoughtful dive into the aftermath of national and personal tragedies filtered through diasporic life." --Publishers Weekly "Ulysse punctuates...descriptions of the lush Florestant plantation with insightful observations about strained family dynamics. The ties that bind can also constrict us." --Booklist "In Drifting, Ulysse's 2014 story collection, Haitian immigrants struggle through New York City after the 2010 earthquake that destroyed much of their county. In her debut novel, Ulysse revisits that disaster with a clearer and sharper focus. Jacqueline Florestant is mourning her parents, presumed dead after the earthquake, while her ex-Marine husband cares for their young daughter. But the expected losses aren't the most serious, and a trip to freshly-wounded Haiti exposes the way tragedy follows class lines as well as family ones." --The Millions "Within minutes of starting Katia D. Ulysse's novel--with settings in contemporary Haiti and America, and characters caught in the aftermath of Haiti's earthquake of 2010--the reader is drawn deep into an intricate tale of family and relationships across cultures...[Main character] Jacqueline Florestant's route is no easy one, but her story puts an individual face on the generalized social stigmas of Haiti." --Island Origins Magazine, included in Summer Reading Roundup No one was prepared for the massive earthquake that struck Haiti in 2010, taking over a quarter-million lives, and leaving millions of others homeless. Three thousand miles away, Jacqueline Florestant mourns the presumed death of her parents, while her husband, a former US Marine and combat veteran, cares for their three-year-old daughter as he fights his own battles with acute PTSD. Horrified and guilt-ridden, Jacqueline returns to Haiti in search of the proverbial "closure." Unfortunately, the Haiti she left as a child twenty-five years earlier has disappeared. Her quest turns into a tornado of deception, desperation, and more death. So Jacqueline holds tightly to her daughter--the only one who must not die.

Conversations with Maryse Cond

This book is an exploration of the life and art of Maryse Condi, who first won international acclaim for Segu, a novel about West African experience and the slave trade. Born in Guadeloupe in 1937, Condi lived in Guinea after it won its independence from France. Later she lived in Ghana and Senegal during turbulent, decisive moments in the histories of these countries. Her writings-novels, plays, essays, stories, and children's books-have led her to an increasingly important role within Africa and throughout the world. Frangoise Pfaff met Maryse Condi in 1981, when she first interviewed her. Their friendship grew quickly. In 1991 the two women continued recording conversations about Condi's geographical sojourns and literary paths, her personality, and her thoughts. Their conversations reveal connections between Condi's vivid art and her eventful, passionate life. In her encounters with historical and literary figures, and in her opinions on politics and culture, Condi appears as an engaging witness to her time. The conversations frequently sparkle with humor; at other moments they are infused with profound seriousness. Maryse Condi is the recipient of the French literary awards Le Grand Prix Littiraire de la Femme and Le Prix de l'Acadimie Frangaise. She currently teaches at Columbia University and her most recent works include Tree of Life and Crossing the Mangrove. Born and educated in Paris, Frangoise Pfaff is a professor of French at Howard University. The translator of this book, she is also the author of Twenty-five Black African Filmmakers: A Critical Study, with Filmography and Bio-Bibliography and The Cinema of Ousmane Sembene, A Pioneer of African Cinema. Entretiens avecMaryse Condi was first published in France in 1993.

The Awakening of Miss Dana

Real Strength Is In The Mind And Not The Fist You seem to have forgotten who you are here. This is my house. This is not your room, it is mine. When I want you to do something, you will do it. How quickly relationships can build you up and then, like a swift hurricane, tear you down and apart blinding you with helplessness. What began as an over seas journey to teach at a school in Haiti with her new found love Raffy, becomes an unexpected storm of the misunderstood and misaddressed throws of abuse and violence. In a country where she has no family or friends except for the children she hopes to inspire and protect, Miss Dana finds her life in danger and her entire reality blown apart within the bile of the exploitation and domination of herself and those she cares most for from communities, institutions and even her lover, Raffy. How can she both protect herself and stay with the children she has fallen so in love with? Through suspense and emotional uprise, Taylor Johnson pulls the reader into a world seldom understood by outsiders and those unwilling to open their eyes to oppression and violence. A story of empowerment and hope, The Awakening Of Miss Dana brings a dark truth about the exploitation, and physical and psychological abuse that occurs within families, institutions and entire communities, into the light. ~ Opeyemi Agbaje, CEO and Executive Director of OROL (Our Right, Our Life) initiative empowering the young with knowledge of sexual and reproductive health, rights, education and gender equality.

1959

Diederich, a correspondent for Time magazine, draws from his weekly newspaper the Haiti Sun to provide an account of the impact of Fidel Castro's victory over dictator Batista in Cuba in 1959 on the rest of the Caribbean. He describes how Haiti's dictator Francois Duvalier was caught in the middle, while Dominican Republic dictator Generalissimo Rafael Trujillo Molina saw him as a dangerous communist. He recounts events from Castro's first press conference and his interview with Duvalier to plane hijackings to Cuba and other upheavals, and even visits to the islands by Hollywood stars. This is the third book in a series recounting events reported in the Haiti Sun.
