Levy Lee Simon on Haitian Revolutionary Toussaint Louverture (Episode #26, 16 Feb. 2021)

I had a ton of fun on this episode.  I interviewed award winning playwright Levy Lee Simon.  Currently, an actor and playwright in Los Angeles, California, Simon received his MFA from the University of Iowa Theater Program in the late 90's.  During that time, he finished a play on the great Haitian revolutionary Toussaint Louverture, who led the only successful slave revolt in the Western Hemisphere.  We also discuss how he became interested in Toussaint Louverture and the other Big Three of the Haitian Revolution, Jean Dessalines and Henry Christophe.


I also was intrigued by Defile (Marie Sainte Dédé Bazile), one of the key women warriors of the Haitian Revolution.  Her story will make you wanting to learn more.  


I am absolutely fascinated Haiti and this interview made me even more interested in traveling to Haiti someday.  I learned so much about Haiti, Louverture, and why this revolution resonates so strongly even 230 years later.
