On November 21st, the Atlantic World Concentration sponsored a 2-Act event, with “cervezas y tacos” followed by a screening of “Black Dawn” (Robin Lloyd and Doreen Kraft, 1981). This unique award-winning film tells the story of the Haitian Revolution through stop-frame animation of famous paintings by Haitian artists.

Before the screening, students and faculty were treated to images and a talk by Susanne Grieve, ECU’s Director of Conservation, about her Smithsonian-led project on conservation of Haitian art destroyed in the January 2010 earthquake. A lively discussion and debate followed the screening. For more on Ms Grieve’s work, click here: (
