During a training seminar in Brooklyn last week for young members of New York’s Haitian community, the participants went around the room sharing their favorite Haitian expressions. One by one, at a table in the wood-paneled President’s Conference Center of Medgar Evers College in Crown Heights, each man and woman said a few words in Creole, Haiti’s French patois, to everyone’s applause and laughter of recognition.
