Bakari Kitwana speaks with author and journalist Herb Boyd about his fact-finding mission to Haiti early this month as part of an assessment delegation organized by the 15-year-old Haiti Support Project.

Boyd, who also traveled to Haiti immediately after the earthquake and produced the documentary Cri De Coeur (Cry From the Heart) with filmmaker Eddie Harris, talks with about the potential for the outbreak of cholera, the upcoming November 28th election, the still delayed $1.1 billion in reconstruction aid from the US, and the lack of progress he witness in Port-Au-Prince since his last visit in February.

“This trip was a follow-up trip to see to what extent there has been progress in rebuilding this earthquake shaken nation,” says Boyd. “Eight months later, there is very little progress. In fact, in some places it looked even worse than it did when we visited earlier.”

Herb Boyd is an award-winning author and journalist who has published 17 books, including his most recent Baldwin’s Harlem: A Biography of James Baldwin (Atria Books). His documentary film Cri De Coeur (Cry From the Heart), with filmmaker Eddie Harris, focuses on the children of Haiti in the aftermath of the January 2010 earthquake.

Bakari Kitwana is CEO of Rap Sessions, Editor at Large of and author of the forthcoming Hip-Hop Activism in the Obama Era. (Third World Press, 2010)
