Le Musée du Panthéon National Haïtien (MUPANAH) apprend avec consternation la triste nouvelle de la mort de l’architecte Gérard FOMBRUN, survenue dans la matinée du dimanche 1er février 2015.

Gérard Fombrum était Membre du Conseil d’administration du Musée du Panthéon National Haïtien et de l’Institut National Haïtien de la Culture et des Arts (INAHCA). L’INAHCA a été crée par arrêté présidentiel en 1983 avec pour mission de coiffer, entre autres, les institutions culturelles d’Haïti.

M. Fombrun a valablement contribué à la sauvegarde du patrimoine culturel haïtien. Propriétaire des ruines de l’ancienne habitation coloniale et sucrière Guillaume Ogier, à Montrouis, ce visionnaire s’est investie à sa restauration, en a fait un lieu de mémoire qui abrite le Musée Ogier-Fombrun.

En cette pénible circonstance, le Musée du Panthéon National Haïtien prie son épouse Nicole, ses enfants, particulièrement sa fille Mireille qui a repris la direction du musée Ogier-Fombrun, sa belle-sœur Mme Odette Roy Fombrun, ses proches, parents, amis et alliés affligés par cette disparition, de croire en l’expression de ses sincères condoléances.

Black History is such a rich story. And Haitian History is also part of Black History. We salute all that came before us all, paving ways for a more colorful and vibrant world. Here you have James Mercer Langston Hughes in Haiti, who was an American poet, social activist, novelist, playwright, and columnist. He was one of the earliest innovators of literary art. In 1931 Langston visit Haiti for a 6 month vacation and wrote several articles based on his experience. From his visit, Hughes was inspired and created sketches for a play that would eventual be called Emperor of Haiti. Hughes was later approached by composer, William Grant in 1938 to which the title was revised to Troubled Island. But we preferred the original title. #BlackHistory #BlackHistoryMonth #KnowThyHistory #History #Haiti #LangstonHughes #HughesInHaiti #ThisIsHaiti #ThisIsUs #LaPerle #LaPerleMedia #LPM
