As a means of making this fall’s anniversary a meaningful and constructive one, this panel features original and hard-hitting perspectives about Haitian-Dominican relations, and the significance of the history of genocide that took place on the island. These authors introduce new evidence from the nineteenth-century to the present, including the 1937 massacre, to offer insights about race, nation-building, and freedom struggles that resonate beyond Hispañola’s borders. With Edwidge Danticat, Anne Eller and Edward Paulino.
