Jacqueline Charles recognizes the value in supporting the arts in Haiti

27 04 2011

“One of the things that happened in the earthquake is that the culture was buried in the rubble,” said Jacqueline Charles who reports on Haiti for The Miami Herald. Charles believes there is value in supporting Ayikodans, which is regarded as Haiti’s cultural ambassador.

Unfortunately, when it comes to how Haiti is generally viewed, “people don’t see and don’t think there’s actually this rich culture.”

Charles was among The Miami Herald team that was nominated this year for a Pulitzer in Breaking News Coverage in Haiti. She was also recently awarded as Journalist of the Year by the National Association of Black Journalists.
