Randall Robinson “An Unbroken Agony”
September 19th, 2007
Just before he was overthrown in a coup in February 2004, former Haitian president Jean-Bertrand Aristide was in contact with his old friend Randall Robinson, the activist founder of TransAfrica.
When Aristide and his wife were whisked away to exile in the Central African Republic, it was a U.S. delegation led by Robinson and California Congresswoman Maxine Waters that carried out what amounted to a rescue mission. They brought the Aristides back to Jamaica.
Now, in a new book, Robinson tells the story he says we haven’t heard before — and it’s a story of a coup backed by the United States, eager to get Aristide as far away from Haiti as possible. His book is called “An Unbroken Agony.”
