Anacaona: Golden Flower, Haiti, 1490 by Edwidge Danticat

With her signature narrative grace, Edwidge Danticat brings Haitis beautiful queen Anacaona to life. Queen Anacaona was the wife of one of her islands rulers, and a composer of songs and poems, making her popular among her people. Haiti was relatively quiet until the Spanish conquistadors discovered the island and began to settle there in 1492. The Spaniards treated the natives very cruelly, and when the natives revolted, the Spanish governor of Haiti ordered the arrests of several native nobles, including Anacaona, who was eventually captured and executed, to the horror of her people.
