  1. Eye was intrigued today by the radio program “On the Ground” interview of Dr. Gerald Horn on the Apocalypse of Africans Diaspora was a history lesson on the 1st Freedom campaign and liberation of our enslaved ancestors in Haiti in 1803. And why America bought the Louisiana purchase from bankrupt France, reparations to wealthy whites in New Orleans and the continued resistance, struggles and triumphs!!!
    I produce a play years ago titled “Dessalines”and the Vudun religious influence in the independence of Enslaves people’s victories in the Caribbean, slavery in America and beyond. It was written by Percy Johnston and I would love to do it again.
