On Tuesday, April 13, 2010, Hofstra will host “A Day for Haiti”, a full day conference examining the relief and rebuilding efforts, the media coverage, the issues impacting children and education, the role of the United States, and the post-earthquake experiences of Haitian-Americans. The conference begins at 9:30am in the Leo A. Guthart Cultural Center Theatre, and the “Day for Haiti” will be followed by a “A Night for Haiti” which kicks-off at 7:00pm in the Main Dining Room in Mack Student Center. Join us as we celebrate the rich culture and heritage of Haiti. Enjoy Haitian DJ Markensen, authentic Haitian food, live music and Haitian dance performances, and the renowned Haitian Mass Choir, directed by Dickson Guillaume. Both events are free and open to the entire campus community and to the public. For more information you may download the entire conference schedule here.
