Dr. Sebi's Haitian Lineage

On the eve of the USA's 2018 State of the Union address, here's Dr. Sebi's take on the country Haiti.

"She came to Honduras in the year of 1914 and she met this man that took her off her heels. His name was Ben Francis. He was a Haitian. This Haitian gave my grandmother love and a life that even when she was telling me the story, and she was already in her 70s, 80s, the laughter, the love that this man brought to her was still showing in her face. He was from Haiti and she bore him two children, Violet and Lucius. Lucius left very early for the United States. Violet stayed and took care of Mama Hay until she passed." excerpt from the 2007 book Seven Days in Usha Village: A Conversation with Dr. Sebi
