On February 4, 2020, The Haitian Roundtable hosted its second annual program recognizing Haitian Independence and Black History Month in a sold-out event at Brooklyn’s BK9 restaurant. This program was created to raise more public awareness about the significance and relevance of Haitian History in America.

During the program, we also recognized leaders and organizations within our community reflecting a new generation, charting new paths and representing the best in our community to the nation.

Our 2020 Haitian Independence Award Honorees:

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
