Boukman's Prayer at Bwa Kayiman, the prayer that began the #Haiti Revolution https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nTfAQQu0rgY

Lapriyè Boukman (Kreyòl)

Bon Dje ki fè la tè. Ki fè solèy ki klere nou anwo. Bon Dje ki soulve lanmè. Ki fè gronde loray. Bon Dje nou ki gen zorèy pou tande. Ou ki kache nan nyaj. Kap gade nou kote ou ye la. Ou wè tout sa Blan fè nou sibi. Dje Blan yo mande krim.
Bon Dje ki nan nou an vle byen fè. Bon Dje nou an ki si bon, ki si jis, li òdone vanjans. Se li kap kondwi bra nou pou nou ranpòte la viktwa. Se li kap ba nou asistans. Nou tout fèt pou nou jete pòtre dje Blan yo ki swaf dlo lan zye. Koute
vwa la libète k ap chante lan kè nou. ---- Lapriyè Boukman nan Bwa Kayiman,

Boukman's Prayer at Bwa Kayiman, the prayer that began the Haiti Revolution, August 14, 1791

The God who created the earth, who created the sun that gives us light. The God who holds up the ocean, who makes the thunder roar. Our God who has ears to hear. You who are hidden in the clouds, who watch us from where you are. You see all that the White has made us suffer. The White man's god asks him to commit crimes. But the God within us wants to do good. Our God, who is so good, so just, orders us to avenge our wrongs. It's our good God who will direct our arms and bring us victory. It's our good God who will assist us. We all should throw away the image of the white man's god who is so pitiless. Listen to the voice for liberty that sings in all our hearts. -- Boukman's Prayer at the Bwa Kayiman Vodun ceremony, the August 14, 1791 call to action that launched the Haitian Revolution, which started on August 22, 1791. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nTfAQQu0rgY

A FreeHaiti 2018 Bwa Kayiman post:
“I have a plan. I will give, and give and give of myself until it proves making or my end. The men of our group have developed (as a result of living under a ruthless system) a set of mannerisms that numb the soul. We have been made the floor mat of the world, but the world has yet to see what can be done by redeemed men, by men who have stumbled the path of disparity, repression, adversity and yet come out whole. There will be a special page in the book of life for the men who have crawled back from the grave. This page will tell of utter defeat, ruin, passivity, and subjection in one breathe, and in the next, overwhelming victory and fulfillment.” ---A March 3, 1966 letter to Georgia Jackson, the mother of George L. Jackson
