Claudette Werleigh

Claudette Werleigh was born on September 26, 1946 in Cap-Haïtien, Haiti. As a young adult, Werleigh established a school for adults and Haitian farmers, an institution that has now been running for more than thirty years. After the dictator Jean-Claude Duvalier fell from power, Werleigh helped form the League for Women’s Empowerment and she held multiple government posts in the 1990s. In 1995, she became the first woman to serve as Haiti’s Prime Minister. In 2007, she was named Secretary General of Pax Christi International.

Happy birthday, Claudette Werleigh!

“The Teenagers” for NEWSWEEK

Illustration I did a little while back for Newsweek for an article juxtaposing teenagers of the 60′s with teenagers today. So one half of the spread is Twister circles and the other half is apps. I always appreciate when I get the opportunity to draw woc. You’d be surprised how often some people try to steer you in the away from depicting poc or women for that matter, because “this article isn’t about that.” As if it needs to be. So props to my art director for letting me do my thing!
