Cultural Literacy: Haiti

Here is a Cultural Literacy worksheet on Haiti. This is a full-page worksheet, so it is suitable, I think, for a number of uses besides the rather limited do-now scope of the shorter, half-page Cultural Literacy worksheets posted on this blog.

Have you, by any chance, read C.L.R. James’s well-regarded history of the Haitian Revolution, The Black Jacobins? I just started it yesterday, and it is all it is reputed to be: classic, at once passionate and analytical, infused with a rich contempt for tyranny, and and endowed with a welcome and edifying scholarly apparatus. I should also mention that Mr. James wrote with verve, and used his gifts as a prose stylist to produce fiction and drama as well.

If you find typos in this document, I would appreciate a notification. And, as always, if you find this material useful in your practice, I would be grateful to hear what you think of it. I seek your peer review.
