Voices of Haiti
An itinerant preacher whose story reads like Job—except for an incandescent smile and a mountain-moving faith. A woman who remains resolutely joyful despite the HIV that has infected half her family, young girls subjected to rape and forced into commercial sex, a couple whose triumph over the disease that challenges them both is a study in grace.
Haiti has always been a place of extremes, especially in the rubble of the earthquake that shattered the country in early 2010 and all the more so among those of its people who are also struggling with HIV/AIDS. The award-winning* “Voices of Haiti” tells their stories in a mesmerizing presentation that combines the poetry of Kwame Dawes, the writing of Lisa Armstrong, the photography of Andre Lambertson, and the music of Kevin Simmonds.
This enhanced e-Book is the capstone of a multi-year project by the Pulitzer Center on Crisis Reporting. The work has been featured in The New York Times, PBS NewsHour, USA Today and other media outlets—and in live performances at the National Black Theatre Festival and in Port au Prince, Miami, and Washington, DC. “Voices of Haiti” brings all of that together, with indelible portraits of remarkable individuals. “Voices of Haiti” was awarded a star by Kirkus Reviews, and was awarded “Special Recognition” from Pictures of the Year International in their e-Book category.
