Join me this Friday at 9PM as I discuss Haitians in the Bahamas and the #ShamelesslyHaitian hashtag with Dr. Bertin Louis.
Bertin M. Louis, Jr. is an Assistant Professor of Anthropology and Africana Studies at the University of Tennessee, Knoxville. Dr. Louis studies the growth of Protestant forms of Christianity among Haitians in the Bahamas and the United States, which is featured in his forthcoming New York University Press book, “My Soul is in Haiti: Migration and Protestantism in the Haitian Diaspora of the Bahamas (2014).” He also studies stateless Bahamians of Haitian Descent.
Dr. Louis also informs students, faculty, and the public via radio and television about Haitian history and culture. Most recently, he created #ShamelesslyHaitian, a trending topic on Twitter.
Radio host and activist Berlotte Antoine will also join us to discuss an up and coming civil legal clinic targeting Haitians in Brooklyn organized by Councilman Jumaane Williams .
