    A family tale inspired the author to explore seemingly minor, but related details of the Saint-Domingue, French, and American Revolutions, including the population movements to and from the United States. “A Haitian Tale of Diasporas and Revolutions” is a documented historical and personal narrative through cultures and continents, as commonalities and ancient ties resurface across time. Africa, Southern Europe, Moors, Huguenots, and 18th century Freemasons ultimately mix into the story of desperate people united across continents to claim their rights to freedom and equality. The article also touches upon current realities.
