Haitian-American filmmaker Michele Stephenson traveled to Haiti on behalf of the National Black Programming Consortium to capture the struggles of Haitians a year after the devastating Jan. 12, 2010, earthquake. From more than 60 hours of footage, many stories were crafted for NBPC's television series AfroPoP and for the Web. This clip, captured for Stephenson's documentary and edited by Sabrina Gordon, is one of several running on The Root this week in collaboration with the NBPC. The multimedia project, entitled Haiti: One Day, One Destiny, will include other documentaries, blogs and several live Web discussions. You can reach the NBPC site at blackpublicmedia.org.
