Where-Black-Rules-White1By H. Hesketh Prichard. In 1899, this British author was the first white man to cross the interior of the black island republic since 1803.

This incredible book describes in excruciating, horrifying and sometimes amusing detail how, after nearly 100 years of independence, the black rulers of Haiti had turned this once-prosperous white-ruled colony into an unimaginable hell.

The last chapter of the book is called “Can the Negro Rule Himself?”

Prichard answered this question as follows: “We may say that, considered in the mass at any rate, he has shown no signs whatever which could fairly entitle him to the benefit of the doubt that has for so long hung about the question.”

This is a hand edited edition which contains none of the OCR errors which mar other versions.
