AYITI!! THE NAME OF THE NEWLY INDEPENDENT SAINT DOMINGUE IN 1804!! IT IS NOW KNOWN TO THE WORLD AS HAITI. FROM THE TIME OF THE REVOLUTION THAT GAVE IT IT'S NAME, HAITI HAS BEEN BESIEGED WITH PRESSURES AND MALADIES FROM ALL SIDES. AND AT THE SAME TIME IT ALSO STANDS AS A BEACON TO THOSE WHOSE MANTRA AND LIFEBLOOD SCREAMS "LIBERATION!!!" HAITI WAS THE SPARK THAT PUT ALL OPPRESSORS ON NOTICE THAT YOUR TIME IS NEAR, AND FREEDOM FOR THOSE YOU OPPRESS IS NEAR! IT WAS IN THE REVOLUTIONARY STATEMENTS FROM NAT TURNER TO WINNIE MANDELA! AND THROUGH ALL THAT THEY HAVE BEEN THROUGH AND ARE GOING THROUGH, THE PEOPLE OF HAITI STAY RESILIENT, STRONG, HOPEFUL AND PROUD!! A TRUE TESTAMENT TO HUMAN SPIRIT! TONIGHT, ON THIS IMPROMPTU SHOW, HOSTED BY GREGORY TAYLOR, WE'LL LOOK AT THE HISTORY OF HAITI AND HOW SO MANY NATIONS HELPED TO UNDER DEVELOP IT AND TRY TO BRING IT DOWN. BUT THE SPIRIT OF WHAT JEAN JACQUES DESSALINES, THE LIBERATOR OF HAITI, CALLS "THE IRRITATED GENIE" WILL NOT LET HER DOWN!! THE SPIRIT OF AYITI LIVES ON IN HER PEOPLE!!! ASHE!!
