I really think The Louverture Project is a tremendously valuable ressource and the more people participate, the better it will become. Thanks so much Stuart! doe - Dominique Esser

we miss you so very much...

Jean-Jacques Dessalines.
From ashes and dust, Jean-Jacques

rose, bronze eagle, binding
wretched of new world, to burn, sack
and hack fresh tracks through the dark
jungle of white dominion.

Black iron clash and blue blood shed
as armies fled the wrath
of gilded African oppressed.
who would be free . . . or dead.

il repoussera par les racines, parce qu'elles sont profondes et nombreuses <<
