  1. RastafarI love. I would love to participate in this great lecture and discussion for the “ Haitian Book Club”. I’m gonna go try and find these articles and book chapters at a local area University library. But, I feel that these materials should be made available for those who need them. I’m experiencing severe hardship, I’m homeless and I use a Shopping cart to get around New York City. So, it’s hard to get to a University Library to copy and read these works. But, I will try and hope that it works. Blessed love.#1804 #Ayiti #TheHaitianBookClub
