    Legacy of 1804 with Arnold Antonin #LOF1804 #Haiti

    in Film

    Host Alice Backer of www.kiskeacity.com does her best to connect with filmmaker Arnold Antonin live from Haiti via Skype. This may be more daunting than usual given Digicel's recent attempt to do away with free VoIPs. If it doesn't work out we'll do a regular news and blog review and bring Mr. Antonin back on a different date. Wish us luck!


    Arnold Antonin's new film on Frankétienne will premiere at St. Francis College in Brooklyn on 10/11.

    in Current Events

    With Host Alice Backer of www.kiskeacity.com and co-hosts Hugues Girard and Hans Roy.


    We will review recent press articles on the issue and parse out whether they are properly delving into the Clinton State Department's propping up of Martelly's contested presidency  in the 2010 election. And what role did Clinton's appointed Ambassador to Haiti Pamela White play in the aborted 2015 electoral coup in Haiti?
