“The Price of Sugar” screening was well attended, and for those who weren’t able to come, the film sparked a rather intense discussion about Dominican citizenship, and the current judicial and executive decisions affecting the country.
As a follow up to these discussions, we wanted to draw attention to an event occurring this evening (December 5th, 6pm) at the CUNY graduate center:
“Join us for a public event and conversation addressing the recent ruling of the Dominican Constitutional Court to strip Dominicans of Haitian descent of their citizenship. In solidarity with other organizations and worldwide actions, scholars, artists, students, and activists discuss the ruling and its effects. Film Screening of Birthrights Crisis will help illuminate the history of the issue, along with a musical performance by Kalunga Neg Mawon Haitian-Dominican Music band.”
