Beautifully complex: Haiti Untold

Haiti mural

Haiti’s story is beautifully complex. The Haiti of today cannot be understood without acknowledging its complete history. The W.K. Kellogg Foundation partnered with Round Earth Media to support journalism that gets to the root causes of Haiti’s current conditions. That reporting was distributed through media outlets in Haiti and the U.S., and some of it can be heard in Haiti Untold. It’s an audio documentary that also tells a story often unheard, of the resilience, the creativity and the liberation of the Haitian people.

In Haiti Untold, Haitian and American journalists bring us stories of Haitians returning to their home country from the U.S. to spur investment and economic growth, of rural disinvestment and rising urbanization, of Haiti’s bustling music scene, the #MeToo movement and innovative recycling efforts.  Some of the stories unearth desperate – and rarely-discussed – inequities; others offer hope and models for change. 

This hour-long audio documentary is hosted by Carline Desiré, radio host and executive director of the Association of Haitian Women in Boston, and Conrad Fox, a Round Earth media producer who spent extended time in Haiti to report on these stories.
