Thirdly, each critical biography in the Series will be used as a teaching tool in the Haitian classroom in the dispensation of knowledge toward a better appreciation of learning and the revalorization of the legacy of these thinkers.  Finally, the Haitian Writers Series is an effort to contribute to the nurturing of the life of the mind of young Haitian students and future generations through the writings and ideas of Haitian thinkers who have shaped the Caribbean nation.
