Listen to the January 23, 2010 program on AfrobeatRadio live on WBAI focuses on the earthquake crisis in Haiti. With the help of Haitian expats and analysts, we explore Haiti’s old and recent history. What is the West’s primary goal for the unprecedented support? We will also take a look at the American media coverage of the earthquake and what roles African governments have played to support the Haitian people.
