What does it mean to be Haitian-American? In the second year of our acclaimed video series, we interview prominent and successful Haitians about their identity in America. You’ll hear from a finance commissioner, a media executive, a fashion designer, an award-winning architect, a leading social influencer and an Emmy-winning news anchor. This year’s series is sponsored by Joel Vilmenay and WDSU in New Orleans.
