Chicago Cultural Center, Millinium Park Room
78 E Washington St
Chicago, Illinois

This screening is organized as part of an exhibit, "Fragments: Haiti Four Years after the Earthquake" at NIU's Anthropology Museum. "Fragments" is cosponsored by the NIU Center for Black Studies and the Center for NGO Leadership and Development, the Haitian American Museum of Chicago, and the UCSB Center for Black Studies Research. In an effort to celebrate the life and dignity of the Haitian people, "Fragments" highlights people surviving, building community, making art, raising families, and challenging their situation as activists. We aim to inspire visitors to recall the bonds that already exist between us. We hope that through this vivid, personal, sensory experience that some may want to get involved to raise awareness or address injustice.

The event is free and open to the public, but registration is required: https://go.prairie.org/sslpage.aspx?pid=474

Following the film, a Q&A session will be led by anthropologist and Northern Illinois University professor Mark Schuller.
