The Haitian Revolution is the first, and only, successful slave revolution in human history. Slavery was abolished in Haiti and in the year 1804 the first Black Republic was born.
The People overcame the Obstacles and accomplished the Unthinkable! The Haitian Revolution paved the way to Liberty and Equality around the world.

Haitian artist and professor of Sculpture at the National School of Arts (ENARTS), Caymitte Woodly (Filipo), chose to use his talent and immortalize George Floyd, whose death has awakened the world to the rampant existence of police brutality and a broken and unjust system, by creating a sculpture of him – a timeless reminder of “a man who once lived, but has died under police brutality.”
No matter how many times “the establishment” cuts down the trunk of the tree, the eternal roots of Liberty, Equality, and Solidarity will spring forth in the hearts and wills of humanity until this system has been broken and Social and Racial Justice are achieved. We have called for Reform time and time again – our voices seeming to echo across the void of Injustice. Without Reform, we are left with only one solution- Revolution!
