Join guest Wynnie Lamour of Haitian Creole Language Institute of NY and I this Friday at 9PM Eastern on Black Whole Radio. We will discuss her institute, her students and her work with Frankétienne.
Wynnie Lamour is the founder of the Haitian Creole Language Institute of NYC.
She is an educator with a focus on Language & Communication. She has
spent the last several years teaching Haitian Creole in the New York
City metro area to a wide array of language learners. Her experiences
growing up in Brooklyn as a Haitian-American have provided her with
equal comfort in both cultures and languages. Wynnie has a BA in
Linguistics from Cornell University and an MA in Urban Affairs from
CUNY Queens College. Wynnie's philosophy of teaching is rooted in the
idea of "Mindfulness", which promotes community and connectedness,
while establishing a sense of pride and respect for both the Haitian
language and culture. Wynnie's most recent work includes a translation
of an excerpt of the Franketienne novel "Dezafi" published May 2013 by
Transition Magazine (Issue 111 "New Narratives of Haiti"), a
publication of the W. E. B. Du Bois Institute at Harvard University.
