Boukman Dutti
Yes, since all three of us are former slaves, we can reflect on painful, regrettable years, but by divine intervention, we are overcoming our foes. Abigail, your words for us please.prophesied that the slaves Jean François, Biassou, and Jeannot would be leaders of a resistance movement and revolt that would free the slaves of Saint-Domingue. An animal was sacrificed, an oath was taken, and Boukman and the priestess exhorted the listeners to take revenge against their French oppressors and "[c]ast aside the image of the God of the oppressors."

And therefore I would like to welcome each and every one of you beginning with Abigail Adams a powerfully influential woman and devoted wife of John Adams the american revolutionary leader. Thank you for coming and joining us, Dutti Boukman, a voodoo priest who served Haitians not only with spiritual sustinance, but with the starting signal of the Haitian Revolution as well. Welcome, Benjamin Franklin, a revolutionary thinker, philosopher, scientist and American politician. We are blessed also with the company of Simon Bolivar, a fellow Latin American revolutionary military man. I would like to introduce to you a frenchman, an ally of America and an enemy of Haiti. Lastly, it is my pleasure to welcome Toussaint L’ouverture, my hommie, one who fights for black freedom; and a leader of the Haitian Revolution.
