10 years ago, a small group of Haitian Americans in Atlanta committed themselves to empowering their community. Those efforts not only impacted lives locally, but even those in Haiti. Today, a new board stands on the shoulders of those who committed to that vision. A board full of energy and now bi-national in the U.S. and Haiti. Join us this year on as we commit to changing the narrative. This is the 2022 Board of the Georgia Haitian American Chamber of Commerce, Inc.!

🌹 Jean-Michel Basquiat (12/22/1960 - 8/12/1988) was an artist from Brooklyn, New York City who rose to prominence during the 1980s as part of the Neo-expressionism movement. As a master graffiti artist, Basquiat’s notable works include pieces such as (among many others):
* Irony of Negro Policeman (1981)
* Boy and Dog in a Johnnypump (1982)
* Defacement (1983)
* Hollywood Africans (1983)

His mother was Nuyorican (i.e., New Yorker of Puerto Rican descent) and his father was from Haiti. Basquiat is buried in Brooklyn. Rest In Peace 🌹🌹 ⛔️ ⛔️ Follow us on Instagram https://www.instagram.com/myreligionisrap/

It is with deep sorrow that we announce the passing of our friend Steve "Real" Seide.

Steve had a larger than life personality & his presence lit up a room. He created his own fashionable style & commanded attention with his thought provoking words. Yet he suffered in silence.

We send our condolences to all of his family, loved ones, & friends. He will truly be missed.

Africa witnessed the crowning of the first Haitian-American queen in Nigeria, following the conferment of the traditional title of Bmazazhi [helper of the less privileged] on Marie Antoinette Jean Pierre Theligene by the Karu Traditional Council of Nassarawa State in Nigeria at the Esu Karu’ Palace.

Since 2004, Theligene has helped more than 300 persons per week – feeding the hungry, sheltering the homeless, and providing physical and spiritual support to the vulnerable in Palm Beach County, Fla., through her nonprofit Valley of Love Ministries.

On Sept. 9, her good works were rewarded when she was designated an “African Queen” by the country of Nigeria—the first Haitian-American to be so named.

Officials of the Karu Kingdom of Nasawara State in Nigeria learned about the philanthropist’s work when a Nigerian man she helped in 2020 returned home and told the leaders of the assistance she had provided.

Last week, they honored her for her kind deeds with the lofty title and will fete her during a 10-day coronation celebration, which her husband, Raymond – who will be named a “King” – and about 40 others, in addition to Haitian leaders.
