I was listening to Sargewp on the generation x website when he mentioned that Danny Glover has had some difficulty getting his movie about Toussaint Louverture a Haitian military general that help to free Haitian people from slavery in 1791. General Louverture and Jean Jacques Dessalines lead the Haitian army of blacks against the French, Spanish, British and Polish armies in a battle that lasted from 1791 to 1804.

The New Haitian Television Network Will Provide Exciting Programming For Haitians
They will offer both pre recorded Haitian show and newly filmed and produced show from Florida. The venture is to be sustained by revenue generated from ads.
The History of Haiti and Simone Bolivar
He was a white aristocrat in Venezuela from a Spanish family of great wealth that spanned generations.
His family had Encomienda’s which were native American slaves and later on used African slaves to run their many enterprises which included gold mine and sugarcane plantations.
Simone Bolivar had a privileged and tragic life. Both of his parents died before he reached 10 years old. He was passed around to different people but his family wealth kept him at the top. Bolivar had the best teachers in Venezuela. His black nanny served as a companion to him in all ways.
Here is a video of the Yele Foundations good works in Haiti, during and after the earthquake of 2010. Wyclef Jean has been getting some slack for his foundation but I know he has been doing good works in Haiti for years before the earthquake, before all of the NGO’s and media.
