Edwidge Danticat: "Create Dangerously"

Oct 11, 2012

In this clip, Danticat reads from a section that described how a friend of hers, iconic Haitian photographer Daniel Morel, was forced to attend an execution in Port-au-Prince, as a teenager during the years of François “Papa Doc” Duvalier. Morel pinpoints this moment in his life and relates it to how he became a photographer.
