Paul Farmer, Edwidge Danticat, and Jeffrey Sachs on Haiti

Posted By on 01.19.10 at 11:49 AM

The Chicago Humanities Festival has posted videos of past programs on Haiti.

Partners in Health founder Paul Farmer talks about his organization's outreach work among Haiti’s rural inhabitants.

Haitian-born novelist Edwidge Danticat discusses her powerful family memoir, Brother, I'm Dying, in an interview with arts journalist Victoria Lautman.

And in his lecture "The Earth Institute and the Four Bubbles," economist Jeffrey Sachs covers "the relationships between poverty, environmental degradation, infrastructure, public health, and demography that lie at the heart of the tragedy in Haiti."

The CHF home page also has a link for donating to Partners in Health's efforts for Haiti.
