From Baron de Vastey to Jean Price-Mars: Voices of Haitian Exceptionalism

Abstract | Word Stems | Keywords | Association | Citation | Similar Titles



Abstract:

Jean Price-Mars was an avatar of the 20th-century négritude movement and a founder of the indigenous movement in Haiti. Through Ainsi Parla L’Oncle and other works, Price-Mars continued the attacks on racism established in the 19th century by such writers as Baron de Vastey (1781-1820) and became a major figure in the pan-African movements of the early 20th century. In his role in the Haitian indigenous movement of the 1920s and in the later trans-national experience of négritude, Price-Mars showed himself to be both an heir of the Haitian Revolution and a progenitor of the black cultural consciousness of the 20th century. His association of Haitian exceptionalism with African customs and traditions was both an elaboration of earlier recognition of African genesis and a respect for the ongoing contributions of Haitian blacks to the historic role of their country. My paper will discuss the legacy of 19th-century writers in the ideas of Jean Price-Mars.
