About the Author

JEAN PRICE-MARS Jean Price-Mars (1876-1969), Haitian statesman, diplomat, physician, teacher, and presidential candidate is renowned for his intellectual guidance of Haitian youth and his efforts to stimulate the Haitian elites to be leaders in the restoration of Haitian nationalism during the American Occupation of Haiti, 1915-1934. Though the Acadamie Francaise awarded him special honor for all of his written works in June 1959, the English-speaking world is little aware of his early ethno-historical approach demonstrating that the black man was equal in intellectual and political abilty to other members of the hunman specie. By elevating the pride of Haitians in their folkloric past and racial competence, Price-Mars hoped to encourage a national spirit that would weld intellectual elites and illiterate peasants togther. Price-Mars regarded the concept of race as a myth and perceived Voodoo as a religion - a cultural rather than a pathological expression. Through his attack on racism and his defense of Voodoo as a folkloric pattern he hoped above all to affect the rigid condemnatory attitude of much of Western Civilization.
