Laurent Dubois on "Left of Black"
Mark Anthony Neal (African and African-American Studies, Duke) recently hosted Laurent Dubois on his popular web series Left of Black. The occasion is the recent publication of Dubois's latest book, Haiti: The Aftershocks of History. Among other things, Dubois talked about the rich - and ambivalent - history of African American-Haitian cultural and political connections, from Frederick Douglass's ambassadorship onward. The Haiti Lab was also on the agenda!
