Human Rights in Haiti and the Diaspora
The Rubenstein Library's Human Rights Archive and the Forum for Scholars and Publics invite Duke and the Durham community to a celebration of the opening of the National Coalition for Haitian Rights (NCHR) records and the Radio Haiti Archive digital collection.
Join us for a dialogue with Jocelyn McCalla, longtime Executive Director of NCHR, and Michele Montas, who headed the newsroom at Radio Haiti for 18 years, was the Director of the station for 3 years, as well as being a journalist and broadcaster.
Prof. Laurent Dubois will moderate a discussion on Haiti's modern human rights history from the perspectives of these two activists and the organizations they steered that reported and responded to the impact of economic upheaval, state violence and repression, and immigration.
The talk will also include a display of items from both the NCHR archive and the Radio Haiti archive.
