"Soon after the collapse of the Duvalier dictatorship, bumper stickers began to appear in Port-au-Prince that read "Merci Gonaïves" (pronounced "Gun-naive"), thanking the small town that began the revolt." With this short introduction Danny Lyon begins his written and photographic account of the Haitian revolution and its ultimate betrayal. A powerful, moving document that transcends its own genre, fashioned by one of our most influential contemporary realists.
