Amy Wilentz on Haiti

February 7, 2013 – Segment 2

The award-winning Amy Wilentz joins us to discuss her newest book, Farewell, Fred Voodoo: A Letter From Haiti. Wilentz tackles the objectification of Haiti’s victimization and searches for why Haitians – in the eyes of the West – are not seen as active controllers of their own destiny.

Wilentz teaches in the Literary Journalism program at the University of California at Irvine.
