For the very first time, I traveled to the country of my parents birth: Haiti. I’m ashamed to say that it took me thirty years to get there but when my childhood friend announced that she wanted to go for her birthday, there were no questions to ask.
A few weeks ago I attended a panel discussion on Haiti as we know it, then and now. This thought-provoking symposium was held at the Auburn Research Library in Atlanta, Georgia. In recognition of this country’s rich heritage and culture, different speakers delved into topics that directly affect its future, especially after January’s horrific earthquake.
