Èzili Dantò performs re-enactment of Bwa Kayiman - the Vodun gathering and war council on Aug. 14, 1791 that started the successful Haitian revolution, abolished slavery, direct colonialism, forced assimilation, the triangular trade and created the nation of Haiti. Written by Èzili Dantò and performed here at Prospect Park with Troupe Makandal and master Haitian drummer, the late, great Frisner Augustin. For more on Èzili Dantò, go to http://www.ezilidanto.com/
Èzili Dantò and the Èzili Network are dedicated to correcting media lies about Haiti. The Network informs about the Haiti riches getting plundered while the fake humanitarians promote that Haiti has no resources so they many continue to take advantage of the poor. Èzili Dantò has spent more than two decades doing this work. Dantò is a writer, performance poet and human rights lawyer with a focus on protecting children and women & human rights issues. She's spent decades bringing to justice charity workers who sexually abuse impoverished children in Haiti at orphanages. She performs her cultural advocacy works on stage with The Red, Black and Moonlight series, the VodunJazzoetry shows.
