Getting Haiti Out of the Crisis
Sunday, November 21 @ 12:00 pm
In Batailles électorales et crises politiques en Haïti (1807-1957)/Electoral Battles and Political Crises in Haiti (1807-1957)(C3Editions), historian Victor “Master Ben” Benoît traces the political and social vulnerability of a country in the chokehold of political crises and electoral battles, starting with its independence in 1804 and ending with President François “Papa Doc” Duvalier’s ascent to power in 1957. In Dans l’enfer du parlement/In the Hell of Parliament, Jerry Tardieu – congressman for the district of Petion-Ville, Haiti, and the minority leader of the Haitian lower Chamber – recounts his experience as a deputy representing his district in the last legislature. Moderated by Rose Bleus, Ph.D., Sosyete Koukouy of Miami. In Haitian Creole with English subtitles.
