Wednesday 5/19

With all the turmoil going on in the world -- a war that's not quite over, Iraqi prisons that aren't so fabulous, the fall of the Haitian government, and the dumping of Florida girl Trish from ABC's The Bachelor -- you might have missed the fact that Haiti is celebrating its 200th birthday this year. In case you didn't have the chance to attend any parties paying tribute to the country, Miami Dade College is offering its own fete, a Haiti Bicentennial Celebration, from 11:30 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. at the InterAmerican Campus (627 SW 27th Ave.) in room 3103. What can you expect? A multimedia tour of the island nation that will include bits about its art, history, and attractions; speeches about going to school, living, and working in the United States by an MDC student and an employee who are both from Haiti; a performance by Haitian-American folk art organization Sosyete Koukouy; and mouthwatering native cuisine such as fried pork, stewed chicken, rice and beans, corn soufflé, and bread pudding. Admission is free. Call 305-237-6365. (NK)
