Fresh Girl
By Jaïra Placide

Jaira Placide has really outdone herself.

At first, reading "Fresh Girl” was confusing because of the frequent dreams, and bouncing from Haiti to New York many times. Then, the mysterious web begins to unravel itself as I read more about Mardi Desravines (the protagonist) and her lifestyle. On the surface, she is just like any other Haitian child in New York. Her family includes a sister (Serina) a mother, a father, a grandmother, her uncle Perrin and her aunt Wilda. However, deep inside her lays a secret, a past experience. A so traumatizing one that it forces Mardi to sleep with rocks on her mattress to keep away the memories that disguise themselves as dreams. It forces Mardi to hurt herself.

To her family, Mardi's problems are small and unimportant, a bad boy named Ike, or trying to impress Santos, a flirtatious crush. Her secret comes to them as a shock but more shocking is the emotion and frustration Mardi has dealt with. With the support and love of her family, Mardi sets out a spiritual quest to heal herself and move on.

Reading about the trials and tribulations of Mardi taught me how hard it really is to keep your head up when the sky is dumped on your shoulders, but it also taught me about family, whose love and support will help you move mountains.

The book

Georges Woke Up Laughing
Fouron, Georges Eugene and Nina Glick Schiller.
Georges Woke Up Laughing: Long-Distance Nationalism and the Search for Home, Duke University Press, 352 p, 2001, 30 b and w photos; ISBN 0-8223-2781-3 Cloth - $79.95 / ISBN 0-8223-2791-0 Paperback - $21.95

Combining history, autobiography, and ethnography, Georges Woke Up Laughing provides a portrait of the Haitian experience of migration to the United States to illuminate the phenomenon of long-distance nationalism, the voicelessness of certain citizens, and the impotency of government in an increasingly globalized world.

The lecture
HAITIAN-AMERICANS AT THE CROSSROAD BETWEEN HOMELAND AND HOME

Abstract: Many Haitian immigrants continue to speak about the sweet and dear Haiti of their youth although many of them have left Haiti a long time ago and have become citizens of other nations. Their decisions to remain connected with Haiti after spending so many years living abroad, their determination to continue to embrace their homeland despite her troubled domestic life, and their resolution to take the citizenship of other nations to help themselves and Haiti often resonate with emotions and nostalgia.

Scholars of migration catalogue these feelings and sentiments under the rubric of transnationalism and designate the immigrants’ continued devotion to their homeland and to its people, long after they had settled in a new land, as long-distance nationalism.

In my presentation, I will focus on the situation of those Haitians who live their lives at the crossroad between homeland and home. To do so, I will direct my attention on the past and present roles transnationalism and long-distance nationalism have played in nation-state building initiatives and will elaborate on the ways in which the transnationalists and long-distance nationalists struggle for social and economic justice wherever they evolve.
