Institute for Justice and Democracy in Haiti


Attend an original play about the Haitian Revolution, in Cambridge, MA.



This spring, the Community Art Center’s School Age Child Care Program is working on an original play about the Haitian Revolution.

Visual, media, dance and theater arts classes at the Community Art Center are collaborating to tell the story of Johanne, a young girl coming of age in the revolutionary landscape of Saint-Domingue- the French colony that would become Haiti.

As Johanne witnesses and participates in the changing life around her she must confront her present fears and find new, future hopes. Her story is told. Through the telling, we learn what freedom, courage and responsibility mean for one girl in one country struggling for liberation.
