Majority Rule Day in The Bahamas

Majority Rule Day became a public holiday in 2014. It commemorates when the majority of the citizens of The Bahamas - those of African descent - gained political power for the first time on January 10, 1967, symbolizing the promise of equality, a level playing field, and fair play for all Bahamians. Along with the emancipation from slavery in 1836, and gaining Independence from Great Britain in 1973, the achievement of Majority Rule is considered one of the most important events in the history of the country.

Happy Haitian Independence Day!

Today marks the anniversary of Haiti's independence, a revolution known to be one of the largest and most successful slave rebellions in the Western Hemisphere. In 1791, the enslaved African people revolted against their French oppressors, making it the world’s first black republic. The revolution was led by ex-slave, Toussaint L’Ouverture, who played a large role in defeating the French army in 1801. Haiti officially declared independence on this day in 1804.
