In this episode Canape celebrates West Indian and Haitian American culture.
First we celebrate J’ouvert, the West Indian Night Parade, which is part of one the world’s great street carnivals. Next, we meet with emerging Haitian filmmakers during the Third Biennial Haiti Film Festival. Then, we listen to Haitian roots music at Zakafest, an event started by members of the Sanba movement which sought to honor Haitian culture. Finally, Canape sits down with Ninaj Raoul from Haitian Women for Haitian Refugees. They’re working with Dominicans of Haitian decent to end ethnic cleansing and apartheid in the Dominican Republic.
