My guest last night on LOF1804 was Dr. Millery Polyné. Topics include the Oct 25th Diaspora in Dialogue conference, the recent ruling stripping Dominicans of Haitian descent of Dominican citizenship and the idea of Haiti.
Millery Polyné is an Associate Professor at New York University's Gallatin School of Individualized Study. A graduate of Morehouse College and the University of Michigan with a Ph.D. in History, Millery's teaching and research interests include the intellectual history of African Americans and Afro-Caribbeans in the 19th and 20th centuries. He is the author of From Douglass to Duvalier: U.S. African Americans, Haiti and Pan Americanism, 1870-1964 (University Press of Florida, 2010) and the editor of The Idea of Haiti: Rethinking Crisis and Development.
Here is a link to the video Dear Ayiti which we discussed early in the show:
Here is a link to an interview I did of Millery when I first created this blog in 2005 on the topic of growing up Haitian in America. It is one of the most visited links on this site!
