Creole men on dating
I think we’ve come a long way in the sense that people don’t think of us like that anymore. We’re thought of being intelligent, proud and honest people.

Kreyolicious: After was—at the time of the earthquake—such a passionate story. Kreyolicious: I’m wondering if you feel any type of pressure as being “The Haitian Actress”. Not too long after, Marie-Claire moved to the United States—Massachusetts specifically—and one by one, she brought her kids with her (Garcelle has five brothers and two sisters). Around the time she was 16, Garcelle’s family moved to Miami (her parents had reconciled, only to break up for good again). Kreyolicious: Now in terms of your kids…you teach them Creole?

I can’t just go out and look for only one type of man. I can’t move to Haiti because of my kids, because of my divorce.
