This week on MESSAGE TRAFFIC Principal Director Justin Russell interviews Jacqueline Charles, journalist from the Miami Herald. We discuss current issues surrounding Haiti. Jacqueline Charles has reported on Haiti and the English-speaking Caribbean for the Miami Herald for over a decade. She is a Pulitzer Prize finalist, she was awarded a 2018 Maria Moors Cabot Prize, and served as co-producer on the Emmy-winning film, “We are fed up”.
How will Haiti move past its ever present gang presence? What role does the youth play in building democratic institutions? Is it necessary for foreign actors to continue to step in or is Haiti better off on its own?
These questions and more are discussed on this edition of MESSAGE TRAFFIC.
