Decolonizing Hispaniola Brooklyn

This is an intimate gathering for people of Haitian and Dominican descent to deconstruct the divisions that define Hispaniola and discuss how to move past the current narrative to reshape our future.

The discussions will center around evaluating our ideas of nationality, nationhood, ethnicity, race, color, class, colonial identity, historical memory, and economic inequality in the context of DR & Haiti. Honest questions and dialog will be encouraged as expert facilitators provide the tools, knowledge, and provocation to deconstruct our collective histories, identities, and examine the power dynamics that support and sustain the current status quo.
