This is a short but unique interview with Jean Price Mars a few weeks before his death in March 1969.  This renowned Haitian intellectual, writer, ethnographer, and diplomat Jean Price Mars, considered one of the founders of the négritude movement, discusses his intellectual trajectory and inspiration, especially around racial theory, Haitian peasant life and customs, and his efforts to study and represent Haitian vodou as a complex and valid religion (contrary to the Catholic church and social and intellectual practice at the time).  Interview Jean Dominique.
