Ayiti Connect: Haitians Contributions to South Florida
The Ayiti Community Trust is hosting a round table discussion focusing on the contributions made by Haitians to South Florida. Part of the “Ti Kont” series, these programs draw from Ayiti’s rich story-telling traditions to shape a narrative about the lived experiences of Ayitian immigrants, their contribution to their immigrant communities, and their enduring connections to Ayiti. This virtual roundtable discussion brings together Haitians from South Florida from various fields and age groups to discuss the role and contributions of Haitians over the last couple of decades in the area. Community leaders participating are Gepsie Metellus, Santra Denis, Sandy Dorsainvil, Wanda Tima, Gilbert Saint Jean, and Dr. Marie Etienne This program is funded in part through a Florida Humanities Community Project Grant in partnership with the Ayiti Community Trust
