Where Black Rules White: A Journey Across and About Hayti
Where Black Rules White: A Journey Across and About Hayti is a book by Hesketh Prichard. The book was published in 1900 and describes a journey accross Haiti by Hesketh Prichard in 1899.
Haiti used to be a French colony, but a revolt by the blacks led to the virtually complete extermination and expulsion of the whites living in Haiti by 1804. Prichards journey's purpose was to evaluate the situation in Haiti after approximately 100 years of complete black self-determination without interference by whites. Although Prichard was sympathetic to the blacks, he did report his observations and this led him, for example, to include a chapter with the political incorrect title "Can the Negro rule Himself?".
