1) Profile of your leader
Francois Duvalier, also known as "Papa Doc" ruled Haiti for 14 years. His rule was based on a purge military. When he was in power, he was responsible for the murder of 30,000 haitians and the disappearance of many more. He has a very new constitution adapted specific for him and his wants and needs. He has a very solid social class that was very dedicated to him, the black socialist platform. He was a very brutal and disliked leader of Haiti.
3) Creative Piece
Haiti's leader Papa Doc
Always creating terror and shock
Never wanting to sit down or talk
If its not his way, you'll get knocked
Hard as a rock, you'll sheerly flock or you'll be fed to the crocks.
4) Essential Question
If so many Haitians despised Papa Doc, why was he able to be in power for so long?
