Talking about Haiti: Further Post

On Tuesday 29 November 2013, a public Black History month event ‘Talking about Haiti’ took place in the St Andrews Building at the University of Glasgow. Distinguished speakers Matthew J. Smith, Rawle Gibbons and Nick Nesbitt talked about C. L. R. James, The Black Jacobins, the Haitian Revolution, Haiti today and the Scotland connection.

It seems that Glasgow and Haiti are connected in many ways, not least through migration patterns and the Haitian-Caribbean connection. Glasgow also hosts a lively Haiti Support Group.
