Nou se Rasine Kreyol!
If you thought the Haitian-Revolution was over,
Re-igniting the flames of Liberté, Egalité, et
Fraternité, Rasine Kreyol (Creole roots) redeems
Toussaint L’Ouverture’s prophecy to Napoleon
Bonaparte that a generation hungry for change will
spring up from the roots of Haiti.
“In overthrowing me, you have done no more than cut down the trunk
of the tree of the black liberty in St-Domingue-it will spring
back form the roots, for they are numerous and deep.”
