Haiti: An Island Luminous 

Explore the history of Haiti through rare books, manuscripts, and photos scanned by archives and libraries in Haiti with commentary by over one hundred scholars from around the world. The Exhibition cabinet, now a permanent exhibit at the North Miami Public Library, courtesy of the Caribbean and Green Family Foundation, was created by artist Edouard Duval-Carrie. The website was created through a collaborative effort by scholars and is hosted online by the Digital Library of the Caribbean.

All in-person events are COVID-19 Conscious Events. Face mask and social distancing is required.
