April 3rd

From Emerson (DBHS ’06) to me:

The date reminds me of 2 things:

  1. An email you sent me a while back about your discovery of the journalist Jean L. Dominique,
  2. Today, exactly 15 years since then-president Jean-Bertrand Aristide ordered his assassination. I remember where I was that day.

Nine charged in 2000 murder of Haitian journalist Jean Dominique

Donated by Mme. Michèle Montas, station co-anchor and widow of Jean Dominique, the Radio Haiti Archive is housed in the Human Rights Archive at Duke University’s David M. Rubenstein Rare Book and Manuscript Library.
