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!

ABOLISH COLUMBUS DAY

to my native community: today I will be representing our people, our community, our ancestors, and myself - today, there is a debate to change Columbus Day to Indigenous People’s Day at my university. I will have to face discrimination, racist remarks, calls of I am being biased and emotional, and white explanations of our history and culture.

And though you cannot be there, I ask that you send me strength. that you keep me in your thoughts and heart. it’s gonna be a long afternoon, but i will not rest till this is done.
