Summary
  • February 7,1991: Jean-Bertrand Aristide, a parish priest, is sworn in as Haiti's first democratically elected president. For the first time, Haiti, with its land and people ravaged by human corruption, looks toward the future with hope. September 30,1991: a military junta ousts Aristide from office, bringing his brief rule to an end. As spokesperson of a rapidly burgeoning grassroots movement, he had refused to compromise, calling for a "clean slate," a new beginning for

Though his story is far from over, as The Village Voice has said, "The priest who became a politician to make heaven on earth a reality is now a president in exile left much where he started, with only his faith to guide him."
