Columbus State University hosts a forum on Haiti at 7:30 p.m. Tuesday in Illges Hall, Room 318 on main campus.
Haitian-born French language professor Cecile Accilien will lead a discussion on the current earthquake-caused crisis in context of her country's history, culture and future.
Accilien has written or co-authored multiple works related to her native country, including the book "Revolutionary Freedoms: a History of Survival, Strength and Imagination in Haiti."
The program is part of the "Haiti in Our Backyard" film and lecture series presented by CSU’s Department of Modern & Classical Languages’ Cine Club.
The forum is free.
