The Haitian American Dream Timeline

The Haitian American Dream Timeline is now live! Created by Alexandra Cenatus, Ivanna Moreno, and Dr. Margarita Vargas-Betancourt, the Timeline examines the events and the forgotten stories of Haitian immigrants in the United States. In so doing, it explains the reasons behind the different waves of Haitian migration, its ongoing impacts, and upheavals so that, as Michel-Rolph Trouillot states, the stories of “the actors who participate in the production of history or any of the sites where that production” transpired are told.

EDIT: On March 10, 2021, the UF Center for the Humanities and the Public Sphere hosted an online discussion of the Timeline, moderated by Manoucheka Celeste (UF Center for Gender, Sexualities, and Women’s Studies Research).
