City Tech Grad Publishes Book on Haitian Revolution and Country’s Future
Rubens Francois Titus (Rubens Francois while in attendance at City Tech), a 1997 BTech graduate of the College’s telecommunications technology program, recently published a book, Roadmap to Haiti’s Next Revolution: A Plan for Diaspora Haitians to Contribute to a Peaceful Turnaround (iUniverse, 2012), which attempts to understand the real underpinnings of the Haitian revolution for the dignity of man at the beginning of the 19th century and proposes labels for a number of the most well-known events in Haiti’s history.
Haiti was the first slavery-emancipated black nation on Earth and the book attempts to refute some of the most widely accepted contemporary misconceptions about the Haiti of today. There are a number of hard lessons to be learned from studying Haiti’s history, and the author puts forward a series of empirical proposals that can serve for future political forum debates among concerned Diaspora Haitians – debates that ought to lead to the adoption of a Diaspora Plan for Haiti.
Greatly interested in both economics and history, Rubens Francois Titus also earned a master’s degree in telecommunications management from Stevens Institute and currently works for Verizon Communications Network Operations.
