Jean-Dany Augustine Klay paints an important aspect of Haitian history: the occupation of Haiti under American troops. Haiti in Bondage highlights the tumultuous time, when the US Navy sent ships to Haiti 19 times between 1857 and 1913 to “protect American lives and property” until they finally occupied Haiti in 1915 until 1924. Their interventions in Haiti finally stopped in 2005 yet the history, damage and influence still remains. This painting is an educational piece that stresses the significance of remembering, yet building and moving forward.
