Voices from Florida: Exploring Miami’s Haitian History
May 27 @ 3:30 pm
The Special Collections and Archives Division of the Miami-Dade Public Library System presents “Voices from Florida,” a monthly series about Florida’s culture, literature, history, and communities. Join community historian and founder of “Black Miami-Dade” Nadege Green to learn more about the history of Haitians in Miami before the mass migration of the 1970s and hear stories highlighting the solidarity between African Americans and Haitians. “Black Miami-Dade” is a multimedia history and storytelling platform that resists the erasure of Miami-Dade County’s Black past. At Black Miami-Dade, the layers, memories and beauty of local Black life are highlighted through research, community-based projects and education.
