I keep thinking of the artist, Jean-Michel Basquiat, who was the first Haitian I met, who was my introduction to Haitian culture. It was the first window that opened to me of Afro-Caribbean, or at least African-Caribbean culture in Diaspora. He'd be working so hard right now to help, if he were still alive
Soon after I met LoLo and the members of his Boukman Eksperyans group, then Richard Morse and Ram. Lolo is a houngan. He provided my first introduction and instruction in Vodún
Now there are Michelle and so many others.
