Famous Creoles

We Creoles have always wondered where we fit in. Creole identity has always been very strong & meaningful but some how our true heritage has become lost due to centuries of abuse, lies & cultural Genocide:

Not only do we have a proud History, but, those that have come before us, have paved the way for us to continue in their sucesses. As the old saying goes! "the proof is in the pudding."
