DETROIT (AP) - The legacy of the Haitian revolution and poetry inspired by it is the theme of a lecture at Wayne State University in celebration of Black History Month.

The Detroit school has teamed up with the Haitian Network Group of Detroit for the Tuesday lecture in the law school’s Spencer M. Partrich Auditorium. The talk, which is free and open to the public, will be given by historian and author Millery Polyne.

Polyne wrote the book, “From Douglass to Duvalier: U.S. African Americans, Haiti and Pan Americanism, 1870-1964.”

Organizers say the program helps mark the two centuries since Haiti declared its independence from France.
