#4519: Arthur replies to #4485 Re: new book on Haiti (fwd)
From: Charles Arthur <firstname.lastname@example.org>
I am grateful to Nancy Dorsinville for the publicity for my
forthcoming book, "Haiti In Focus", but I am afraid such publicity is
premature. I am only now finishing the final edits of the text, and it will
be several months before it is on sale. Be assured, I will inform the list
when it is available.
Can I take this opportunity to ask the list two questions:
In what year did the Duvalier regime close down the regional
ports - making Port-au-Prince the only legally functioning port in Haiti?
Did this measure include Cap-Haitien? I believe they re-opened in 1987.
In what year did Protestant missionaries first hold a service on
the site of the Bois Caiman ceremony? Was it 1997? And am I right in
thinking a subsequent attempt to repeat the insult was prevented by the HNP?
If so, what year?
