Biography

Martinique-born poet, he was educated in Paris. Two years after their 1937 marriage, he and his wife compatriot Suzanne Roussi, returned to Martinique where they became teachers. In 1941 they founded a literary review where they and fellow literati could publish their work. Cesaire was considered a leader in the Négritude movement, centering thematically on the cultural identity of those with African roots in the colonies and shining light on racism. A social and political activist, he was President of the Regional Council of Martinique from 1983 to 1988.

He died, aged 94, from ill cardiac health on April 17, 2008 in Fort-de-France, Martinique.
