Garry Pierre-Pierre, Pulitzer-Prize-winning Haitian-American journalist, is the  founder of the Haitian Times and a journalism lecturer at The City University of New York. He joins Here & Now guest host Lisa Mullins to discuss the latest and what Haitians want to see next.

This segment aired on October 19, 2022.
