Haiti: The Aftershocks of History


Laurent Dubois, Ph..D., Marcello Lotti Professor of Romance Studies and History, Duke University

Host: David Inge

In January of 2010 Haiti was devastated by a powerful earthquake, the worst in more than 200 years. As many as 300,000 people may have died. Now, over two years later, the country is still struggling to rebuild in spite of billions of dollars in aid promised by the international community.  We'll talk about Haiti with Laurent Dubois from Duke University, author of "Haiti: the Aftershocks of History." His book looks at the ways the country’s past continues to shape its present.
