Mackendie Toupuissant writes [1] [fr]: “The news went almost unnoticed. Until now,  Haiti was a mere “observer” in the African Union.  Since early February, the first black republic in history became  a” full associate member “of the African Union (AU).  This decision, the first of its kind for a country of the African Diaspora will be formalized at the next AU summit scheduled for June-July in Lilongwe, Malawi's capital city.”
