Without a Home
mixed media on wood door 24" X 80"
Haitians are without a home. Their ancestors were stolen from Africa and brought to Haiti where they were forced to work cane fields as slaves. The island of Hispianola is not their home. Many have immigrated to the U$ where they have been treated as second class citizens. The U$ is not their home. If they returned to Africa, they may be treated as Kings and Queens but only as tourists. They will not be welcomed home. The cultural differences are far too great to be treated as just another Ghanaian, Nigerian or Senegalese. Haitians and all black people in the U$ can never go home. They are a people without a country.
