Toussaint Louverture was the leader of the Haitian Revolution. He was born into slavery in 1743 in the French colony of Saint Domingue. The slaves were mistreated for many years, and decided to finally do something about it. A rebellion was started between the slaves and the French, called the Haitian Revolution. Toussaint Louverture was a great military commander because he was a significant part of putting an end to slavery, but he was a shoddy ruler of Haiti.
Imagine society without the lightbulb. The rays of energy produced by this bulb of wires and glass are necessities and staples in many people's lives. This small glass ball is often forgotten because it can be easily accessed by a flick of a switch, but the lightbulb is an invention that has changed society. This amazing source of light has enabled us all to become more productive and reduced dangers that could take many lives. While the lightbulb is an older invention, it still benefits us today by increasing production in the early mornings and late evenings.
Mass incarceration is the way that the United States has locked up millions of people over the last forty years using unnecessary and disproportionate policies. Contrary to popular belief, this is racially fueled as most of these policies saw to it that blacks and latinos be locked up for longer than their white peers and for smaller crimes. These racist roots within the system can be traced back to when the first slave ship arrived in the US. But our first major prison boom was seen after the American Civil war. I know that the Civil War was far more than forty years ago.

The cause of the American Revolution was the 7 Year War and the introduction of taxes, and the Cause of the French Revolution was the faulty government structure. The primary cause of the Haitian Revolution was slavery. Slavery played a major role because both the British, and the French were thoroughly involved. In addition, the Haitian Constitution’s primary goal was to end slavery. All of the three revolutions had a constitution, however, the Haitian Constitution was the only one mentioning ending slavery.
South Seattle College (SSC) offers a tremendous number of activities and volunteer opportunities for students who would like to become more involved with the community. As a student who has decided to major in art, I strive for all of the experience and learning opportunities related to that. At SSC we have created the Art Gallery where students and faculty are able to present their art during arranged shows and open hours throughout the day. As a member I would help with setup before shows, along with leading discussion with audiences presenting students work. It is an honor to not only have the chance to view others art and help engage the community with these events, but I am also pleased to say that last spring quarter one of my digital art pieces were chosen to be presented as well.
Since Las Vegas is a tourist city it’s naturally a social environment and has numerous locations for reaching out to the local community. The Downtown Project for example was redesigned to attract more locals and get rid of the negative stigma associated with downtown. The cultural need for the Boys and Girls Club in Las Vegas would be to have a diverse community for young children. Las Vegas has locals and foreigners from all around the world with different backgrounds and beliefs. This would allow children to be more open-minded and adapt quickly to their surroundings.
During the early 1960’s many Cubans fled to the United States not because they wanted a better life, but because they were fleeing from the hardships put on them by Fidel Castro. According to Maria Garcia in Havana USA, there were three major waves of Cubans arriving in the United States. The first was after the revolution from 1959 to 1962, the second was during the “freedom fights” from 1965 to 1962, and the third was the “Mariel boatlift” in 1980. Many of the Cubans from these waves settled in Miami, Florida because of the similarities it has to Cuba. Miami was an easy transition for most of the Cubans looking for a new home until they could return to Cuba.
Growing up in Haiti, I was introduced to different cultures through arts. Haitian culture is rich and vibrant it’s a mix of African, Spanish, and French culture combined, creating the creole culture. As a result, I learned Haitian creole, Spanish, French, and English. Arts are a tremendous part of what make the Haitian culture. Such as “rara” is a form of festival music that is used for a street procession, typically during Easter week.

The Spanish-American War was fought in 1898 between Spain and the United States. The Spanish-American War ended Spain’s colonial rule in the Americas. The war began when Cuba tried to achieve independence from Spain in February of 1895. The United States officially declared war on Spain in April, after the USS Maine battleship exploded in Havana, killing 266 American sailors. It was never proven that Spain was actually responsible for the battleship sinking, but the US newspapers battle cry became “Remember the Maine.” Some background information tells us that in 1492, Spain was the first country to sail to the western hemisphere or across the Atlantic Ocean to colonize American land.
