Transcript of Haiti

Francois Duvalier Francois Duvalier was born in Port-au-Prince, Haiti on April 14, 1907. Him along with his family were apart of the middle class. Father was a school teacher/court judge and grandfather was a tailor. He believed that the African traditions should always be preserved and they should not be influenced by European countries. During his rise to power he was just like any other president that was campaigning. He promised top rebuild the country of Haiti and say that we can start new and fresh. What made him an even better candidate for him coming to power was that he had plenty of support from the countryside and things were going his way. He defeated his main opponent Louis Dejoie. He also won the army over to his side. While at power he created an organization that was like his own secret police called the Totons Macoutes. This group continued to grow and become more powerful over time to the extent where they started becoming responsible for terrorizing/killing. Anyone that was seen as a threat to "Papa Doc" had to deal with... He became popular by helping to cure the ill so his nickname became "Daddy Doctor" which translated into French is "Papa Doc". In Jan. of 1971, Papa Doc changed the constitution so that his son "Baby Doc" could succeed him which he did and than Papa Doc passed away April 21, 1971. http://www.blackpast.org/files/blackpast_images/a_Doc_Duvalier__www_latinamericanstudies_org.gif http://www.grioo.com/images/rubriques/5/16427.jpg http://www.bestweekever.tv/bwe/images/2007/11/Dr%20Julius%20Hibbert.JPG http://www.drunkblondepoker.com/gunslinger.jpg The End http://marchmom.com/DancingBaby/baby.gif http://www.artplusinc.com/graphics/polsample2.gif
