#tbt On the night of August 14, 1791, enslaved Haitians gathered to participate in a secret ritual at Bwa Kayiman. Presided over by Cecile Fatiman possessed by the spirit of the mother/warrior goddess Ezili Danto and Dutty Boukman, a prominent leader and Vodou priest, the ceremony served as both a religious ritual and strategic meeting as conspirators met and planned a revolt. In the following days, the whole Northern Plain was in flames, as the rebels violently burned, pillaged, and killed across the region. The ceremony is considered the official beginning of the Haitian Revolution. #history #caribbean #haiti #ayiti #vodou #boukman #revolution #emancipation

realest thing I’ve seen in a while

this was so amazing. so thought provoking. an eye-opening social criticism.

Best one I’ve seen so far

Omfg.

Cant lie, i didnt get all of them but this is super deep.

The hardest ones for me to interpret were the Angel plowing a field and the vultures… But from my interpretation. The Man is using religion for his own personal gains which is not what it is for.

And the vultures are Warmongers hiding the white bird that is a symbol of peace.

Maybe I’ll know you’re the one if ever you grasp onto the parts of me that scared everyone else away.

@shotsdboss at the world famous Desperadoes pan yard in Laventille. African drums were banned in the 19th century. In the early 20th Century young people in Port of Spain innovated and created the steel pan. Desperadoes steel band emerged out of the Orisa yard run by Mildred Tola and Ma Taiwo. #music #seunkuti #culture #africa #trinidad #steelpan #maferefunegun
