Fort Greene festival celebrates Haitian culture
Haitian culture was on full display at the BRIC Arts Media House Saturday as Community to Community hosted its sixth annual Hope and Future event, a cultural experience celebrating Haiti.
The Fort Greene event showcased Haitian artwork, music, dance, theater and cuisine. Organizers say their goal was to have people learn more about the culture and history of Haiti.
The nonprofit organization Community to Community is dedicated to creating self-sufficient communities in Haiti, through fundraising and education.
Organizers say they have helped complete a water distribution system in Haiti while planting 14,000 seedlings.
