Masters of the Dew

By Jacques Roumain

Recommended by Haiti Projects.

From Amazon: A new English-language edition of this novel, which tells of the traditional rural life and people of Haiti, dominated by the natural world. This is a deeply powerful story of the harsh existence of peasant farmers struggling in a world both beautiful and unforgiving.


Unbreakable: A Story of Hope and Healing in Haiti

(Contains graphic video) From Amazon: On January 12th, 2010, a magnitude 7.0 earthquake struck Haiti, bringing devastation to an already impoverished nation.

1804: The Hidden History of Haiti

From Amazon: 1804: The Hidden History of Haiti is a documentary film about the untold history of the Haitian Revolution. Produced by the creator of the best-selling Hidden Colors film series, 1804 goes in-depth about the four principal players who were instrumental in Haiti s independence: Makandal, Dutty Bookman, Toussaint Louvature, and Jean-Jacques Dessalines. This documentary gives a competing look into the strategies, the motivation and the mindset that led to Haiti being the only slave population who successfully overthrew their oppressors.
