> Whoa!!! ! I'm currently reading Carolyn Fick's "The Making of Haiti" and
Felix Moriseau-Leroy spoke of conversations he had with Paul Robeson who
had been approached by Hollywood to play a role in a film on the Haitian
Revolution and independence wars, with excellent pay. The catch? Hollywood
would have to change the outcome of that struggle "not to irritate white
people." I miss Morisseau-Leroy.
