Haitian Provisional Deputy Ambassador to Japan Delivers Lecture


On February 19, 2014 (Wed.), Ms. Judith Exavier, Haitian Provisional Deputy Ambassador to Japan, delivered a lecture on the topic “History of Black People in the Caribbean Island” at a lecture meeting of the ICU Social Science Research Institute.

She spoke of the history of the Caribbean, during which black people were treated as slaves, as well as the Haitian Revolution, which led to the creation of Haiti, the first republic to be established by them.

During the Q&A, students asked many questions, and the Ambassador said, “They are all excellent questions,” and earnestly responded to each. At the end, she said, “I am honored to have been given this opportunity to visit ICU during February, Black History Month (in the USA), and deliver a lecture. It is wonderful that there is a place like this where people of various nationalities are able to converse with one another. I would like to come again.”
