‘The Price of Sugar’ Screening in Washington, D.C.

December 3, 2013 | 5:00PM-7:00PM | Elliott School of International Affairs Room 505

In light of the recent ruling by the Dominican Constitutional Court revoking citizenship for thousands of Haitian-descended Dominicans, this event brings to campus The Price of Sugar. This award-winning documentary focuses on the lives of marginalized Haitian sugar cane cutters, who are at the center of debates of migration, citizenship, and human rights in the Dominican Republic. Haiti scholar Dr. Robert Maguire will introduce the film, and visiting scholar and anthropologist Scott Freeman will facilitate a discussion.
