Human Rights in Haiti and the Diaspora

The 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 digital collection.  Join us for this dialogue, collection display, and reception.

Panelists:
Juny McCalla
, longtime Executive Director of NCHR.

Michèle Montas and journalist and broadcaster who helped the newsroom at Radio Haiti for 18 years and was the station’s director for three years.

Professor Laurent Dubois will moderate a discussion on Haiti’s modern human rights history from the perspectives of these two activists and how their organizations reported and responded to the impact of economic upheaval, state violence and repression, and immigration.

 

The event is free and open to the public and will be preceded by a reception and a display of items from the NCHR and Radio Haiti archives.

Sponsored by the Forum for Scholars & Publics and the Duke Human Rights Center at the Franklin Humanities Institute.
