Haiti Will Not Perish - a panel and screening
Thursday 7th September 19:00 at London - Tottenham Court Road
The world’s first independent black republic, Haiti was forged in the fire of history’s only successful slave revolution. Yet more than two hundred years later, the full promise of that revolution – a free country and a free people – remains unfulfilled.
Join renowned journalist and author Michael Deibert, in conversation with Carrie Gibson, as he talks about his exploration Haiti’s recent history in this vivid and up-to-the-minute book.
Finding a country steeped in tragedy, riven by political crises and beset by foreign powers, but also a rich and resilient culture full of life and love, Haiti Will Not Perish overturns the myths and distortions surrounding this so often misunderstood country.
This event will also feature a screening of Raoul Peck's "potent, persuasive and quietly furious documentary" Fatal Assistance (2014), which examines how international aid agencies failed Haiti after the catastrophic 2010 earthquake.
