Day 28: The Black History Month Series: Year 2021: The Index and the Haitian Perspective

Day 28: The Black History Month Series: Year 2021: The Index and the Haitian Perspective

Today is the last day of February (02/28/2021); we close our Black History Month series entitled “We Have Changed the World”: Haiti’s and Haitian Contributions to the Black History Month (Year 2021).

Our goal was to offer a Haitian perspective on the Black History Month while being conscious about the significance of the African American history of the United States and the global history of the African diaspora in the world. In the month of February, we posted 29 posts on the HTN website, relating to how the nation of Haiti and the Haitian people have changed the world, contributed to human flourishing, and continue to make the world a better place for their people and for all people.

As a note of reference, below, I provide an index covering all the topics featured on the website of Haiti: Then and Now. I hope the contents covered in this series will continue to be a source of inspiration, empowerment, and reference to all of you, especially students of Haiti’s national history.
