Marlene Daut:

I think that there have to be more and larger stories told about Haiti in various media outlets. I think that the story of Haiti becoming the first nation to permanently abolish slavery after the Haitian revolution is so important, because I still see people, you know, journalists claiming that that rule for England or for France without any acknowledgment of the fact that Napoleon Bonaparte had tried to reinstate slavery, which is exactly what led to the Haitian independence movement and which was struck in January of 1804 and resulted in Haiti becoming after that a couple of years after that, the first, quote, unquote, black republic of the New World.
