From 1957 to 1986 Haiti came
under the control of authoritarian leaders. Many wealthy and educated Haitians fled the
country during this rule, leaving the country poor and uneducated. In 1990 the Rev. Aristide
was elected as president
in Haiti's first democratic elections. Before the year was out he
fled to the US after his government was overthrown in a military
coup. Foreign aid was cut
off and Haiti's condition continues to worsen. Many refugees have fled to the US.
