May we thank you on the air?*:

Dady Chery’s "We Have Dared to Be Free" is essential to understand Haiti’s
complex and extraordinary journey. Dady Chery was born and raised in Haiti.
Before the 2010 earthquake, her professional life was wholly dedicated to
science. Like so many Haitians, either still living on the island or from the
diaspora, the quake turned her life upside down. It was a wake-up call for
Chery. Since then she has given a voice to the voiceless and worked to make
Haitians proud of their rich culture and unique history. In her lexicon, Haiti
should not be called the poorest nation of the Western hemisphere but, rather,
the only republic from a successful slave revolution. Much of Dady Chery’s
information is unavailable in English anywhere else. She offers a crisp,
beautifully written discourse that allows us to connect the dots to see the
bigger picture. Haiti has been a runaway experiment in humanitarian imperialism
since 2004. Chery points out that the methods refined there by the United States
and its collaborators in the United Nations mission and non-governmental
organizations are already coming home to roost. "We Have Dared to Be Free" is a
five-year literary journey through destruction, pain, occupation, corruption and
death, from which Dady Chery brings her compatriots and all people who are
oppressed the tools to overcome adversity and the sense that adversity can and
must be overcome.
