It wasn't until a cousin's death in Haiti that made Caribbean correspondent Jacqueline Charles truly understand the pain of a nation. Here is a snippet of a reporter's personal tale.
Exactly six months ago today, at 5:53 p.m. EST, the people of Haiti were struck by the most violent earthquake in a century. A Magnitude 7 struck just 10 miles southwest of the capital of Port-Au-Prince. Below is a clip from the National Day of mourning held in February.
As Haiti faces perhaps its most challenging crossroads due to the immense loss of life and property resulting from the Jan. 12 earthquake, Nou Bouke will present a comprehensive look at the Haitian polemic. The hourlong documentary, which will be ready by the end of the year and will be distributed nationally through our partnership with WPBT, is a representative mosaic that depicts the many perspectives that surround the hopes and aspirations of the Haitian people as they move forward into a future full of uncertainty.
