haiti history 1940s museum quai branly A Haitian extended family gathers for a group photo. Visiting anthropologists like Mercer Cook and Haiti’s very own Jean Price Mars noted that in the countryside, Haitian families kept the living traditions of their ancestors in Africa, including the “lakou” system, in which various families lived in one unit.

This photograph depicts another of my greatest heroes, Martin Luther King Jr. See him? Look close. No? That's the point. This humble negro minister [vernacular of the time, used here to further the point] originally had no ambition beyond serving his community and his family.

Speaking to hundreds of thousands.
