Kicking Off Black History Month, Haitian Style

On February 4, The Haitian Roundtable hosted its second annual program recognizing Haitian Independence and Black History Month. The goal was to raise public awareness about the significance and relevance of Haitian History in America.

During the sold-out program at BK9 in Brooklyn, we recognized leaders and organizations within the Haitian-American community reflecting a new generation, charting new paths and representing our best to the nation.

Our 2020 Honorees were:

  • Frank D. Joseph II
    Deputy Commissioner, NYC Human Rights Commission
  • Tanya St. Julien
    Chief of Staff Leadership for Educational Equity
  • Jacques Tassy
    Founder and CEO, The Jacques Custom Fashion
  • The Gentlemen’s Factory
