Description

Join us in celebrating the opening of Radio Haïti-Inter: Three Decades of Resistance. Curator Laura Wagner will offer brief remarks at 6:30pm, and Leyla McCalla and Kiyoko McCrae will be in attendance (on the first night of their residency leading up to their Duke Performances premiere!).

Radio Haïti-Inter: Three Decades of Resistance tells the story of how Radio Haïti-Inter persevered in the face of government repression during dictatorship, military rule, and the democratic era. Under the leadership of Jean Dominique and Michèle Montas, Radio Haiti was a voice of social change and democracy, speaking out against oppression and impunity while advocating for human rights and celebrating Haitian culture and heritage. Dominique was assassinated on April 3, 2000 amid a climate of mounting violence against Haiti’s free press.

This exhibit and immersive audio experience coincide with the Duke Performances premiere of Breaking the Thermometer to Hide the Fever and the twentieth anniversary of the assassination of station director Jean Dominique.

Enjoy two opening receptions in the Ruby and a Nasher Museum of Art opening tonight! Head upstairs to see the new exhibit When I Say Africa: Photographs from the Continent and across the street for the Nasher’s Ebony G. Patterson . . . while the dew is still on the roses . . . opening reception.
